FC Porto vs Liverpool: Prediction and Betting Tips
Undefeated in seven matches, Porto came back from Madrid with a crucial point in their first CL match. Still unbeaten in 18 matches in all competitions, Porto have a very good record at home in the Champions League. Notably, the Dragons held Manchester City to a goalless draw and beat Juventus 2-1 in the CL last season.
Certainly, Porto will gain a lot of confidence from their form ahead of Liverpool’s visit. During their match in Madrid against Atletico, coach Conceicao’s men played a very good game. In fact, the Dragons had five clear cut chances to score and steal all three points from the game. In addition, Porto almost had the same number of attacks as Atletico in the second half (48-49). Given all these facts, Porto can be a threat to the Reds.
Porto Key Stats
- Porto won all of their last seven home games
- The Dragons had five clean sheets in the last seven home games
- 2.7 is the average number of goals scored in Porto’s last ten matches

Liverpool to maintain their undefeated record in Porto
After winning the Champions League in 2020, Liverpool lost in the quarter-finals of the 2021 edition to Real Madrid. Since then the Reds haven’t lost a competitive match, 17 to be exact. During the seven matches of the 2021/22 season in the Premier League Liverpool conceded four goals. Incidentally, three of those goals were in their last trip to Brentford.
Despite the 3-3 draw, Klopp’s team still lead the PL. However, the German hopes that conceding three goals in a game is just a lapse of concentration as they can’t afford such lapses in Porto. On the positive side though, Liverpool are undefeated to the Portuguese side in their four visits to Porto since 2001.
Liverpool Key Stats
- Liverpool scored in all of their last ten matches
- The Reds had seven clean sheets in ten matches
- Klopp’s team won four of their last five away games
FC Porto vs Liverpool Prediction
Despite the bookies favoring Liverpool to win with odds of 1.78 at Vbet, Porto can be a dangerous opponent. Surely the bookies are justifying their claim with the h2h record that saw Liverpool unbeaten in any of the eight meetings.
However, Porto had very convincing performances last term in the Champions League as we covered in the preview. And Conceicao’s team are showing the same strong form this season as well.
To conclude, we think with Liverpool’s last performance against Brentford it is risky to back them for a win. Also considering Porto’s and Liverpool’s scoring form, we think it’s best to go with both teams to score in this match.
