Porto attacking weapon Vincent Aboubakar set to miss Liverpool game
Feb 14 2018
Karius, 24, arguably delivered his best display for Liverpool in the 2-0 win at Southampton on Sunday, making two excellent saves in the first half and generally looking assured.
Left-back Telles has been in fine form for the Portuguese champions, having assisted 10 goals in all competitions this season.
Robertson is hoping the duo continue to fire away in the knockout rounds. However, a Liverpool defense that have thrown two commanding half-time leads should be wary of their opponents on Wednesday night. Bobby's got his 20th.
On the other hand, Porto's undefeated start in the Primeira Liga has since seen them jump to the summit, ahead of Lisbon rivals, Sporting Clube and Benfica. "Porto are going very well in their domestic league and they always prioritise the Champions League so I'm sure they are going to be ready". Everyone can make a difference.
Liverpool ace Ben Woodburn is with the Champions League squad.
"But we will do everything we can to get to the next round". To say the least, Salah has scored in last four games and now has 28 goals across competitions while also providing eight assists. Mignolet has largely failed to convince at Anfield, however.
Liverpool, who hung on to third place in the Premier League following the comfortable win over the Saints, traveled to Portugal with a full contingent of players and will take part in a warm weather training camp after the Champions League duties.
"Virgil has played quite a bit now and we're getting more used to each other - that's important for the team", Karius told the Liverpool Echo.
The Reds have been inconsistent at best in defence this season, but they have managed two clean sheets in their last three outings and appear to be turning the corner. We are dreaming of scoring goals and not concede against them.
"I'm going to do what I can to help [Salah] score goals and to help all the team".
The blockbuster Champions League clash between Liverpool and Porto will be aired live on Sony TV network in India.
He strongly believes that it is ludicrous to expect the Reds to settle the tie by the end of the first 90 minutes.
"I don't think he will struggle at Liverpool, he is a player made for big club like that and with the role he plays, there is no way he will be sitting on the bench there".
"Last season, PSG against Barcelona - everybody already thought that Barcelona was out (after the first leg) but they still changed it".
