FT: Porto 0-5 Liverpool. A hat-trick from Mane, Salah's 30th of the season and a clinical strike from Firmino means the Reds are all-but through to the last eight after a first leg demolition in Portugal.
In contrast, what's left of the home support aren't impressed. Two minutes added, but the referee should just blow up now.
YNWA booming around the stadium. Liverpool are all-but in the last eight with 90 minutes still to play.
That's only the third time an LFC player has grabbed a European treble away from home. Michael Owen did it twice.
- GoalSadio ManéLiverpool
GOAL! What a strike! Mane puts the seal on an emphatic victory with a thunderbolt of a 25-yard drive to clinch his hat-trick.
A blast from LFC's past is impressed.
CLOSE! Mane fires over on the half volley after racing into the middle to attack Robertson's wonderful cross. Almost the hat-trick.
STAT: The Reds have found the net in each of the last 11 European fixtures. The club record is 13

LIVERPOOL CHANGE: Firmino off, Danny Ings on for his CL bow.
- OffTrent Alexander-ArnoldLiverpool
- OnJoe GomezLiverpool
LIVERPOOL CHANGE: Gomez on for Alexander Arnold.
Klopp has got his final two changes ready on the touch line.
It's looking like we'll know two of the last eight come the full time whistle. Man City and Liverpool are going to have to implode like we've never seen before to miss out from here.

PORTO CHANGE: Soares off, Paciencia on.
Porto readying their final sub - but it's not going to make much difference. Liverpool are on course for the last eight.
Do you reckon...
The terrific trio have done some damage for LFC tonight. That's Firmino's eighth in Europe this season.
- GoalRoberto FirminoLiverpool
GOAL! Now Firmino gets in on the act. Liverpool rip Porto apart once more. Milner skips free on the left and cuts it back for the Brazilian to side foot into the bottom corner.
This is a better spell for the hosts. Waris lets fly from 25 yards but it lacks the power to trouble Karius.
Good block by Lovren. The Liverpool defender gets his body in the way after van Dijk's error had given Corona the chance to cut it back from the right of the area.
A lovely move almost ends in a fourth as Firmino can't quite get on the end of Alexander-Arnold's super delivery from the right.
Liverpool controlling the game well at this point, something they've struggled to when leading by large margins on occasion this season. Porto don't look dangerous enough to cause any concern....
- OffYacine BrahimiFC Porto
- OnAbdul Majeed WarisFC Porto
PORTO CHANGE: Waris on for Brahimi.
Real Madrid go from front to back in an instant as Ronaldo races into space in the area on the overlap, but his near-post drive deflects behind for a corner, which comes to nothing
Sérgio Oliveira rifles a long-range shot well over. Porto look a tad dejected.
Marega has a half chance for Porto, but his scuffed shots bounces into the turf and is easy enough for Karius.
Who needs Coutinho?
It is the 17th time Liverpool have scored three or more. That was Mane's fifth in the Cl this term.
- GoalSadio ManéLiverpool
GOAL! Liverpool are running riot. A lightning break sees Salah feed Firmino through the middle. The Brazilian's shot is well saved, but Mane races in to gobble up the rebound.
So, Man City look all set for the last eight and Liverpool do too at this points. Spurs drew 2-2 in Juventus and bossed it after falling 2-0 down early on - does that mean English football teams are finally back as major European forces?
PHOTO: Salah celebrates his 30th of the season.
Porto need to do something special in this half if they are to avoid losing their fourth CL knockout game in a row.

One minute added.
CLOSE! Brahimi slips it through for Soares who flashes just wide of Karius' right-hand post.
PHOTO: Mane nets the opener.
STAT: Liverpool have netted 31 times in Europe this season. Their record for this competition is 34 which they set in 2007-08.
Elsewhere in the CL tonight, PSG lead 1-0 at Real Madrid.
ATTEMPTS: Porto 1-5 Liverpool ... ON TARGET: Porto 0-2 Liverpool.
VIDEO: Super Salah makes it two.
Liverpool break again. Robertson sets Mane away. The forward bursts to the right but can't find Firmino for a tap-in as a vital touch off a defender diverts it away.
A real purple patch from Liverpool has given them a major advantage in this tie. Two away goals can't be sniffed at.
DID YOU KNOW? Super Salah is only the 13th different Reds player to score 30 goals in a season.
STAT: Liverpool have scored at least twice in 12 of the last 13 games in all competitions.
That is Salah's 30th of the season. What a player!
- GoalMohamed SalahLiverpool
GOAL! It's two! Milner's shot crashes back off the post and Salah shows real composure to flick it over the keeper, nod it into his own path and touch home.
The travelling Kop are in good voice now. Whistles from the home support. They aren't that used to seeing their side behind.
That was Mane's 10th of the season in all competitions.
- GoalSadio ManéLiverpool
GOAL! Mane's low shot from the left of the area squirms through Jose Sa and into the net after Wijnaldum had wreaked havoc with a powerful run.
Porto are a threat from set pieces. They have scored eight times from them in this season's competition - more than any other side.
Héctor Herrera rises at the back post to meet a right-wing corner, but gets it all wrong and Liverpool are able to clear their lines.
Iván Marcano produces a sensational clearance on the stretch after Firmino came within a whisker of converting Robertson's whipped ball into the danger zone.
The away side earn a succession of corners, but Porto's defence stands firm.
A poor goalkeeping clearance falls kindly for the visitors. It's worked to Salah on the right, but his cross into the middle is diverted to safety. A good situation goes begging for the Reds.
Liverpool enjoying a good spell of possession, but most of it is in their own half. It's eventually fed to Firmino 35 yards out, but his dinked pass through for Mane has too much on it.
The Merseysiders have barely threatened so far tonight, but can be ferocious on the break. Indeed, they have scored at least twice in 11 of the last 12 games in all competitions.
Tiquinho (aka Soares) is a man in decent form and someone for Liverpool to be wary of. He has netted three in Porto's last two games, including a double in their 4-0 away league win at Chaves last Sunday.
Porto may be on a long unbeaten run ,but it's worth noting that they have lost their last three knockout matches in this competition.
At the other end, Robertson races onto a lay off and lashes a first-time 25-yard drive just over the bar.
Porto are dangerous from set pieces, but on this occasion Karius is able to gather under no pressure.
CLOSE! Otavio latches onto Moussa Marega's touch in the box. He creates space 15 yards out but sees his low shot deflect off Lovren and fly just over the bar with Karius stranded.
Brahimi wasting little time in attacking the youthful, Alexander-Arnold. This time Wijnaldum comes across to support the full back, who eventually gets an important tackle in.
STAT: Liverpool's only clean sheet in 10 trips to Portugal came on this ground in 2001.
Porto have started like a side who are 24 matches unbeaten in all comps. Lots of energy with confidence flowing through their passing.
All Porto early on. Liverpool being pressed back.
Brahimi motors down the left and forces Alexander-Arnold to concede the first corner of the night. Lovren heads clear and Liverpool come through unscathed.
DID YOU KNOW? Liverpool are playing in the knockout stages of the Champions League for the first time since 2008-09. Back then they were lost out to Chelsea in the quarter finals.
The Reds have won just two of their 10 visits to Portugal. The Merseysiders have not picked up a victory in any of the last seven, but a victory tonight could be a good omen. They won at Benfica in the last eight in 1978 and 1984 and on each occasion went on to be crowned champions of Europe.
- 1st Half
KICK OFF! Liverpool get us underway.
IT'S BEEN RAINING HEAVY IN PORTO - BUT WILL IT RAIN GOALS? Only PSG's Parc des Princes saw more goals (16) than the 15 witnessed at the Dragao in this term's CL group stage.
STAT: Jurgen Klopp has been beaten in just two of his 21 European games while in charge at Anfield, scoring 46 goals in that time.
The Reds have not lost in their last 10 outings in this competition (won 5, drawn 5).
Jurgen Klopp: "We have to show that we are not only part of the competition, we are quite ambitious. That is how it is and we have to take it seriously."
Porto coach, Sergio Conceicao: "We will face a very strong team, with a budget of over 200 million euros, but two historical clubs face each other and the players give me the confidence to think that we can pass this tie."
Steven Gerrard just making an assumption or some insider knowledge? Let's face it, most people expect Can will be leaving in the summer. Incidentally, he's supended tonight.
The good news for Liverpool is that Porto are without 22-goal hot-shot Vincent Aboubakar. Danilo Pereira, Andre Andre also miss out while Felipe is suspended. Otavio comes into a busy midfield as a result with Moussa Marega, Francisco Soares and Yacine Brahimi carrying their major threat in 4-2-3-1 system.
PREVIOUSLY: This is the third time the two teams have been drawn to face other in European competition. Back in 2001 Liverpool won 2-0 on aggregate in the UEFA Cup quarter finals. They went on to lift the trophy as part of their famous cup treble.
The sides met again in the 2007-08 CL group stage. It finished 1-1 at the Estadio do Dragao and 4-1 to Liverpool at Anfield.
Jurgen Klopp makes three changes to the Liverpool team that beat Southampton 2-0 on Sunday afternoon. Jordan Henderson returns as skipper while Dejan Lovren and James Milner also get the nod. As expected, Loris Karius is in goal with Virgil van Dijk set for his Champions League bow for the Merseysiders.
