As it stands, Atletico will move into second spot in the group despite still being goalless with AC Milan.

58' 

SAVE! Alisson denies Luis Díaz after the forward was played in on the left side of the box. The flag goes up so it wouldn't have counted, but no doubting it was excellent goalkeeping by the Brazilian.

56' 

FC Porto will be ruing their failure to make the most of some good situations at 0-0. Can they find something extra now?

Mane takes a pass on the right, cuts inside and sees an attempted curler towards the far corner deflect just wide.

Otavio releases Taremi with a sublime ball into the right side of the Liverpool area. The forward is faced by Alisson but opts to cut it back to no-one in particular and Morton comes across to hack to safety.

GOOAA- NO! Mane races after Thiago's precise pass and coolly slides it into the far corner. Porto were caught cold there but get a reprieve as VAR checks and deems Mane to be offside.

34' 

DID YOU KNOW? FC Porto have not won in 21 previous visits to England and have scored only 11 times in that run of games. They have drawn three and lost 18. One of those draws came at Anfield in March 2018.

32' 

Otavio blazes over from 15 yards out after Liverpool had failed to deal with a high ball into the area.

Another woeful kick from Diogo Costa presents Liverpool with the ball. It's played to Salah who can't wriggle free to get a shot away. It wouldn't have counted as he was offside, but that was really poor from the keeper.

Salah can't connect cleanly with a first-time shot from outside the area and Diogo Costa is able to gather after his poor clearance hit Mane and almost gifted the hosts the lead.

23' 

Pepe appears to be in some discomfort for Porto. It looks like he'll have to be replaced. That'll be a blow for the visitors.

22'

19' 

Mbemba does well to block Minamino's attempted cross from the left with a free Salah charging in at the far post.

17' 

DID YOU KNOW? Liverpool have scored in 25 consecutive games in all competitions since failing to score against Real Madrid in an empty Anfield in April 2021.

15' 

There's some obvious frustration at Liverpool's slow tempo in both the stadium and on social media. No real surprise though. Klopp's changed the team and they haven't got as much riding on it.

13' 

VAR checks for a penalty after a late attempt from Tsimikas to put Otavio off, but there's nothing doing there.

12' 

WHAT A MISS! Otavio somehow misses the target from a central position in the area after a brilliant run and lay off from Luis Díaz. It all came from Konate losing the ball inside the centre circle.

11' 

Evanilson surges after a clever through ball and fancies his chances to outpace Konate. He charges into the left of the area but is chased down by the Liverpool defender and sees his shot from a narrowing angle ricochet back off himself and out for a goal kick.

9' 

CLOSE! Tsimikas loses possession deep in Liverpool territory. It's crossed from the right but Taremi's flick header hits Matip and flashes wide of the near post.

7' 

STAT: Liverpool have only lost two of their 23 home games in the Champions League under Jurgen Klopp (W16 D5).

5' 

No dramas for Liverpool but they've yet to set much of a foot in the Porto half. Salah looks to change that but Zaidu got across to make an important sliding challenge.

3' 

Porto win an early corner and apply some decent pressure that results in boos from the home crowd. Konate is called into action on a number of occasions to clear the hosts' area.

PERMUTATIONS: Liverpool are through but there’s still another qualification spot up for grabs in Group B.

  • Porto will go through if they beat Liverpool and Atletico lose to Milan.
  • Atlético must win to stay in contention to reach the round of 16 without having to depend on other results.
  • Milan must win to stay in contention for either a round of 16 or UEFA Europa League place. Milan will be unable to finish in the top two regardless of their own result if Porto win.

Against the best teams in Europe, we have to compete with the highest intensity. We've worked hard since that defeat. It will be a special game, because I'm going back to a club and a city where I spent five years. I'll do my best."

Marko Grujic

Thiago Alcantara: “It's very tough to win the Champions League. We are playing the best teams in the world. If we are in our best shape, we can achieve everything. The most important thing is the hunger that we have - we want to win in our way. It's not just about who plays, but it's about the group.”

Porto boss, Sergio Conceicao on Liverpool: “(They) are one of the best teams in the world. You look how they play, their principles, and regardless of who plays, they will not change. It’s down to us. We can't control the opponent's strategy, which will likely be the same as how they play every week. But we have our strengths, our ability, our tactics, our ambition.”

Klopp: "We always respect the competition but we have to think about ourselves and our schedule and the situation of our players first. In this time of the season, the medical department has a big hand in line-ups. But we have to line up a team who has a chance to win a football game."

It’s a blend of experience and fringe players for Liverpool as Jurgen Klopp makes four changes to the side that thumped Arsenal at the weekend. It’s a Champions League bow for 19-year-old midfielder Tyler Morton while Neco Williams, Ibrahima Konate and Takumi Minamino also start. Interestingly, Sadio Mane and Mo Salah are also in the XI.
