Liverpool’s predicted starting XI vs Porto

Liverpool travel to the Estádio do Dragão this evening for the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final against FC Porto.

The visitors are in a commanding position for the trip after securing a 2-0 win in the first leg, and their dominance on the same ground last season suggests they will progress into the next round.

There is still a job to do for Jurgen Klopp’s side but they are in hot form heading into the game and a single away goal would leave the hosts requiring four goals to advance into the next round.

Ahead of the game, Football FanCast have predicted Klopp’s starting line-up and suggested that the German could make three changes to the side that beat Chelsea on Sunday.

James Milner takes his place at left-back again after starting in Andrew Robertson’s place in the first leg, while Lovren also returns in place of Joel Matip.

Georgino Wijnaldum steps into Naby Keita’s shoes after being left on the substitutes bench for back-to-back fixtures.

Fabinho and Henderson keep their places in midfield after a pair of outstanding displays against Chelsea, and if they emulate that type of form there is no doubt the Reds will dominate the midfield in Portugal this evening.
