In the match that had the biggest goal difference in the first leg, Porto will host Liverpool on Wednesday, April 17, for the day that completes the quarter-finals of the 2018/2019 edition of the Champions League. In the Estádio do Dragão, in Porto, the meeting has kick-off scheduled for 16h (Brasília time).
In England, the reds scored 2-0. Thus, they advance to the semifinals in case of new success, draw or even defeat by a try difference. If they can score a goal, even a two-goal margin failure will guarantee their place.The Portuguese have the option of winning by three or more tries of advantage. The return of the 2 to 0 provokes the accomplishment of the prolongation, in which the goal with goals benefits the visitor and equality in 0 to 0 takes the decision for the collection of penalties.
In his last game before attempting to turn Liverpool’s side, Porto got a result that would be enough to put him in the Champions League semi-finals. On Saturday, April 13, working out of their dominions for the twenty-ninth round of the Portuguese Championship, scored 3 to 0 in Portimonense.With the result, he reached the level of 72 points (23 wins, three draws and three losses). As Benfica defeated on Sunday, April 14 at home, the Vitoria de Setúbal, by 4 to 2, ended the journey in the vice-leadership, but with a slight improvement over the rival, since it diminished their disadvantage in the balance of goals, which is the first tiebreaker. Now, the score of this dispute is 55 to 44.The clash with Portimonense, however, left a sequel to the departure of this Tuesday. Mexican defender Jesus Corona left the pitch in the second half with an ankle injury. Tests should be performed to determine the severity of the injury. It is most likely that the player will not be available for the game.
Liverpool had less time to prepare for the meeting in Portugal. His appointment for the thirty-fourth round of the English Premier League was scheduled for Sunday, April 14. The Reds at home needed a lot of sweat to win the classic against Chelsea by 2-0 and take back the lead of the Premier League, which had been lost shortly before Manchester City’s 3-1 win over of Crystal Palace in London.They reached the 85-point mark (26 wins, seven draws and one loss). They are two more than City, who have made a game less. Liverpool have also extended their unbeaten run, which now has 16 games (15 wins and five draws). It’s been more than three months without defeat.The only injury-busting loss for Wednesday’s duel will be on account of midfielder Adam Lalana. The athlete, 30, follows the care of the medical department recovering from a muscle injury. It is not, however, an embezzlement, since it can not be considered a titular athlete, but only an option for the reserve bank.
Still without the best striker, Vincent Aboubakar, manager Sergio Conceicao did not clean up his weekend winners, 3-0 in the Portimonense move. Porto has stayed on for 2 points with Benfica leader. It is perhaps the best sign that the fate of qualification in the League semi-finals is hard to return after 0-2, and the Lusitans will even get out of the championship race.Also eliminated by Liverpool last year but in the eighth (0-5 home, 0-0 on Anfield), Porto has done well in Europe this year – it has qualified with five wins and a draw but in the eighth hard – was 1-2 in Rome and 3-1 on the draw on Dragao, after overtime. Now, it’s hard to believe that a team playing in the domestic competition with Tondela or Chaves can turn Liverpool back. However, it is worth mentioning that Porto has four victories from four home games in the league – 1-0 with Galatasaray, 4-1 with Lokomotiv Moscow, 3-1 with Schalke and AS Roma.
Probable Team FC Porto: Casillas – Wilson Pereira, Pepe, Militao, Telles – Corona, Herrera, Danilo Pereira, Brahimi – Marega, Tiquinho
Liverpool comes after a big 2-0 with Chelsea, the victory that can bring the first title in the Premier League after almost 30 years – since 1990 cormorant fans are waiting for it. With four remaining matches, Liverpool has a schedule lighter than City, even if the citizens are at two points in the back plus a draw, but at United!Returning to Europe, we do not forget that Liverpool is the finalist of the Champions League, 1-3 in the last act with Real last year. Now the cormorants have been excited by Bayern in the eighth, 3-1 on the Allianz Arena, after Anfield 0-0. Prior to the Porto game, however, it must be said that the Munich victory is only the first out when Liverpool lost all the group, 0-1 to Naples, 0-2 to the Red Star and 1-2 to the PSG!Without defeating 16 matches, from 1-2 to Wolves on January 7, Jurgen Klopp comes to Porto without Joe Gomez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Team Liverpool: Alisson – Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, van Dijk, Robertson – Fabinho, Milner, Wijnaldum – Salah, Mane, Origi
Football Prediction of the Day Porto vs Liverpool
The great evolution of Liverpool in the current season compared to the previous one was to have managed to balance his aggressive style with times when it slows down and controls the game without running great risks. Thus, the prognosis in equality for Wednesday’s match against Porto ends up being the most appropriate option for the return leg of the quarter-finals of the Champions League 2018/2019 edition.
Bet Tips: DRAW
Without a goal with Liverpool in the last three games, Porto is aware that, without success on the table, it’s out of Europe – just to be able to. The plus of the Lusitans is that they have won all of their home, while Liverpool has lost more away. The difference in value, however, is great, and in favor of the guests, who are not allowed to lose and play only by talent. In case they will not have the “chef”, given the 2-0 solid enough in the tour, we put an “X2”. We’re licking near and a “1.5 goals” over because Liverpool is a very offensive team that can take advantage of the space that Porto will be forced to attack to qualify.
Prediction Today: X2 and over 1.5 goals
