Porto vs Liverpool 14 February 2018: UCL Preview and Predictions

Soccer | Round of 16

FC Porto will be in action this week as they host Liverpool for the first leg of their round of 16 tie in the UEFA Champions League. Both teams will be desperate to get a win in this game so we should be able to watch a good game of football.

FC Porto are a good team and they have shown that in both the group stage of the competition and also in the domestic competition. This will be a tough game for them since they are facing a good Liverpool side that will be desperate to win away from home. This is the game that Porto must win since if they are to qualify, they will need to take a lead into the second leg at Anfield.

Liverpool will look to get some away goals in this leg. The likes of Salah and Mane will hope to score and that will go a long way to make it to the next round. The Liverpool defense will be key for this game. If they can avoid getting beaten badly, Liverpool will be happy. I think they will be good enough to get a win away from home since their attacking team is simply too strong at the moment.

As far as betting is concerned, we are getting a good enough price to bet on Liverpool to win outright and as a result that is the bet which I am going to suggest. In addition to that, I think Liverpool will score many goals and that means that the over 2.5 goals is a bet which I also like.  

Pick:
Liverpool
