How Liverpool have been helped with a major advantage ahead of Porto game

Merseyside outfit Liverpool will play against Porto in the quarterfinals of the Champions League later on Tuesday as they go into the game as favourites.

Both teams clashed last season in the round of 16 and the Reds team were able to thrash the Portuguese side by 5-0 to proceed to the finals.

However, events seem to be working in favour of the manager Jurgen Klopp team again as it has been confirmed that the Porto side will be without two of their major players as they are set to face a disciplinary ban for the first leg.

Former Real Madrid defender Pepe and Mexican midfielder Hector Herrera have been ruled out of the first leg and this means that the strength of the Porto team have been reduced, knowing the quality of both players.

More so, three other Porto players have bookings already and they all face the risk of missing out of the second leg if they are booked in the first leg.

However, the former Real Madrid defender has boasted that his team will win against Liverpool to proceed to play the winner between Barcelona and Man United as he noted that he will win his fourth Champions League title this season.
