FC Porto and Liverpool will meet for a seventh time in the Champions League on Tuesday at 8pm (UK time).
Across their previous meetings, the Portuguese giants — who began this season with a goalless draw at Atlético Madrid — have never come out on top against the Reds while Jurgen Klopp’s side are seeking back-to-back wins to start this 2021/22 campaign.

Porto vs Liverpool build-up, previous line-ups & team news:
After reaching last season’s Champions League quarter-finals, there’s quiet optimism Porto can repeat that feat and progress into the knockout stages. Sérgio Conceição’s men can be content with their goalless draw at defending Spanish champions Atletico Madrid on matchday one. From a historical perspective, the Dragons have faced Liverpool on eight previous occasions, with six of those coming in this particular competition. Porto come into this week’s latest encounter still looking for their first victory against the Reds having lost five times before with the remaining fixtures ending in a stalemate.
While those in attendance watching Atlético-Porto at the Metropolitano Stadium saw a draw being played out, those miles away in Merseyside witnessed another epic chapter in the Liverpool-Milan rivalry. Klopp’s men took an early lead before finding themselves behind at half-time. The six-time European champions rallied after the break and ran out 3-2 winners. Incidentally, this will be the fifth time Liverpool will face Porto in the Champions League since Klopp became manager. They’ve won more games (3), scored more goals (11) and kept more clean sheets (3) against the Portuguese giants than any other opponent in this competition under the German.
- Porto (vs Gil Vicente): Costa; Corona, Mbemba*, Marcano, Wendell; Uribe, Vitinha; Otávio, Vieira, Díaz; Taremi.
- Liverpool (vs Brentford): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold*, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Jones, Henderson; Salah, Jota, Mané.
Chancel Mbemba is suspended while centre-back partner Pepe is also a fitness doubt. Agustin Marchesin is nearing a return to fitness but may not be ready for this match. Thiago and Harvey Elliott are sidelined while Trent Alexander-Arnold hasn’t made the trip and should be replaced by Neco Williams. Naby Keita is also a fitness doubt.

Player to watch: Sadio Mané (Liverpool)
Every headline made by Liverpool seemingly revolves around Mohamed Salah or Diogo Jota, both of whom have been impressive so far this season. But, from time to time, Sadio Mané has shown he’s still a force to be reckoned with. The 29-year-old Senegalese forward has netted three goals across seven matches in all competitions heading into this week’s Champions League game. Liverpool’s opponents also just happen to be Mané’s favourite outside domestic English football. He’s been directly involved in five goal across four matches against them: scoring four times and creating another. Mané’s four strikes against the Dragons are the joint-most by a Liverpool player versus a Champions League opponent alongside Steven Gerrard vs Marseille and Philippe Coutinho vs Spartak Moscow.
