Porto Play For Pride
Porto probably wish this game could be cancelled but their star striker missed the first leg and has 24 goals to his name including 5 in 5 Champions League matches.
This is a non-contest with Liverpool’s progression assured but one man who could brighten Porto’s mood is star striker Vincent Aboubakar who is well priced at 16/5 to score anytime with PaddyPower.
The Cameroon international has fired 24 goals in 2017-18 and is just returning from a 6-match absence having missed the first leg humbling.
Aboubakar has scored 5 Champions League goals in 5 outings this season, netting twice in Monaco and once at Leipzig. He’d surely love to add Anfield to his list of goalscoring venues.
Jurgen Klopp is, somewhat surprisingly, planning to field close to his strongest side despite the 5-0 advantage and a crunch game with Man Utd coming up at the weekend. Regardless, his players will likely be operating in second gear and keen to avoid injuries.
This could increase the opportunities for Porto to salvage some pride.
