In those seven wins Liverpool have registered at least two goals or more, if they repeat that form in Porto their hosts could find themselves needing to score five to progress.

Five goals was the margin of victory when Liverpool last ran out at the Estadio Dragao. It was a Valentine’s Day massacre that saw the home side find themselves two behind inside the first half hour.

The three men expected to lead the line for Liverpool in Porto, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino were all on target that night. The front three are the club’s joint top scorers having each netted thrice this Champions League campaign.

Despite those recent good memories Portugal has generally not been the happiest of hunting grounds for the Reds. They have won just three of their ten outings in the country, suffering four defeats and playing to three stalemates.

None of those losses in Portugal were sustained to Porto, who have failed beat Liverpool in seven attempts in European competition.

Only once in seven matches have Porto held a lead against Liverpool, during their 1-1 draw at the Dragao in 2007.

Liverpool are competing on two fronts but Porto are still in the running for a treble as they look set to regain the Primeira Liga title and are looking ahead to a Portuguese Cup final at the end of May.

Moussa Marega provided the biggest goal threat for Porto in the first leg as he has done throughout the competition, tallying six goals and two assists in the Champions League this season.

Barcelona await the winners of this quarter-final in the last four after they saw off Manchester United at the Nou Camp last night, thanks to a star turn from Lionel Messi
