Firmino looking to help fill Coutinho void for Liverpool

What can Porto expect?

Jurgen Klopp has confirmed Loris Karius will start in the Liverpool goal. Nine league titles in 11 seasons at the turn of the century made them an attractive proposition for those looking to adapt to football on the continent, while the club thrived without the pressure of expectation on the European stage. I'd say sitting 3rd in the premier league and in the last 16 of the CL is pretty impressive.

Midfielder Emre Can is suspended for the first leg while record signing Virgil van Dijk is set for his first appearance in the competition for the club he joined in January. "It is not about who we play it is about how we play and what we do". I don't know what other people think about Roberto Firmino.

It was Salah's 29th goal this season, with six of them coming in European competition, while Firmino's 20 goals include seven in the Champions League.

As I mentioned, the link between Salah and Firmino is nearly telepathic and they are hard to stop.

With Aboubakar likely out, Moussa Marega is likely to take precedence up front, but the forward is also a deadly threat.

The man in Real's goal for both matches was Casillas.

Conceicao once reacted to being sent off during his playing career by spitting at an opponent before throwing his shirt at a referee, and he now shares a meticulous style of management with the German.

Jürgen Klopp has cast further doubt on Simon Mignolet's future at Liverpool by suggesting the Belgian will not be selected for Liverpool's Champions League match against Porto on Wednesday. In fact, it wouldn't surprise me if a few English teams end up competing at the back end of the Champions League this season. Karius started the City game and has played in Liverpool's four league games since.

Mood in the camp - judging by player/coach quotes regarding this game, do you think Liverpool come into the match in a confident frame of mind?

Where can I watch Porto v Liverpool? Everybody is aware of what they did to Leipzig and Monaco and the level of knowhow of this competition is huge at the Dragão.

"We saw the other results, we saw Tottenham win - but we did our job".

Genuinely, it's tough to call.

"I don't know yet if he'll [Gomez] be available on Wednesday, but I think he has a chance", Klopp told Liverpool's official website.

An opening day defeat at home to the Turkish side was the only blight on a solid group stage campaign, with two pulsating home wins complemented by a fine 3-0 win in France and draw in Istanbul.
