Thrashing the Portuguese in their home was clear enough that Liverpool FC under Jurgen Klopp can beat any team, any day. If we talk about the English Premier League Liverpool FC handed the mighty Manchester Blue their first defeat of the season. The same they did in the first leg of this fixture when they defeated FC Porto in their home ground and that too by 5 goals to nil. FC Porto’s Coach Sergio Conceicao would do anything in his limits to change the outcome of their horrible fate which was decided when his team conceded the fifth goal.

Not Decided – 1
Felipe will play this game after missing out the first leg because of his suspension. Andre Andre and Danilo will have to be very careful in this match because they are previously booked and if by chance, their team gets a victory today on the aggregate then they cannot afford to sit out that game. Tiquinho Soares and Moussa Marega are injured and would not go Liverpool for this leg. Vincent Aboubakar is back in the squad but it remains a doubt if he would play the game. Danilo Pereira will miss out this game. Ricardo Pereira is expected to feature in this game for the home team. Goncalo Paciencia may fill in for Marega and Soares.
Emre Can is available to play this game after missing out on the first leg because of his suspension. Alberto Moreno has to be very careful since he was already booked earlier. This is going to be tricky for the visiting team since they have already won the first leg and that too by a very big margin so they can make many changes in the squad or they can go with the same team. Georginio Wijnaldum and Danny Ings remain doubtful in this game as well.
Liverpool – Karius (GK), Robertson, Dijk, Matip, Gomez, Milner, Henderson, Can, Mane, Firmino, Salah
