Liverpool have a fine record against Porto. The five-time European champions have met the two-time winners on four occasions in continental competition, and are yet to lose a game. Gerard Houllier’s side beat them in the quarter finals on the way to the 2001 Uefa Cup, Danny Murphy and Michael Owen with the goals in a 2-0 win at Anfield, after a 0-0 draw in Portugal. Then in the 2007/08 Champions League group stage, Rafael Benitez’s side managed a 1-1 draw in Oporto, Dirk Kuyt getting on the scoresheet, then ran up a 4-1 win at home, Fernando Torres, Steven Gerrard and Peter Crouch doing the business there.
That’s the good news. On the flip side, Porto have done for the last three English sides to visit their manor in the Champions League. Arsenal went down 2-1 in 2010; Chelsea were defeated 2-1 in 2015; and Leicester were walloped 5-0 last season. Historically, it’s a mixed bag.
