FC Porto 1 – 4 Liverpool FC Football Highlights
(UEFA Champions League QF 2nd Leg)
Agg : 1 – 6
Venue : Estadio do Dragao
GOAL : 26′ 0 – 1 Sadio Mane
Well what do you know – it wasn’t offside and Liverpool have scored totally against the run of play.
The VAR took a while but it got the decision right. Mane was clearly onside as Salah played the pass and he came sliding in at the back post to finish.
Porto now need to score four times to advance.
Goal : 65′ 0 – 2 Mohamed Salah
Liverpool extend their lead.
Firmino wins the ball in defence and works it on for Alexander-Arnold, who passes forward for Salah. He’s through on goal and slides it past Casillas.
The kind of finish that Porto have lacked in this tie.
GOAL :69′ Eder Militao 1 – 2
A deserved consolation for Porto as Militao rises to meet a free-kick and heads past Alisson from 10 yards out.
GOAL : 77′ 1 – 3 Roberto Firmino
Mane, Salah, and now Firmino. Liverpool’s front three are all on the scoresheet.
Henderson whips in a fine cross from the right corner of the box and Firmino jumps and plants a low head past Casillas.
GOAL : 84′ 1 – 4 Virgil van Dijk
Liverpool running away with this now as Milner curls in a corner, Mane flicks on at the near post and Van Dijk heads in from six yards out.

Man Of The Match :
Liverpool have never lost a European match against FC Porto in seven previous encounters (W4 D3 L0), keeping three successive clean sheets against them.
Since the start of last season, Liverpool have won three of their four away Champions League knockout games, only losing to Roma in last season’s semi-final (4-2).
FC Porto are the only remaining side in the Champions League to have won 100% of their home games in the competition this season (4/4). Indeed, Porto last won five or more straight home games in the competition between October 1998 and December 1999 (run of six).
Liverpool have progressed from all nine of their previous two-legged European ties under manager Jurgen Klopp (four in the 2015-16 Europa League, one 2017-18 Champions League play-off and four Champions League knockout stage ties since the start of last season).
Sadio Mane scored a hat-trick for Liverpool against Porto at Estádio do Dragão in last season’s Champions League; only Luiz Adriano v Bate Borisov and Cristiano Ronaldo against Atlético de Madrid have ever scored more than one hat-trick against an opponent in the Champions League, while no player has ever scored two away from home against one club.
Since the start of the 2017-18 tournament, Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino has both scored and assisted in five different Champions League matches, more than any other player in this time.
Moussa Marega has scored in all four of FC Porto’s home Champions League matches this season.
