Match background Only this chapter

Porto have plenty of work to do as they welcome Liverpool for the second leg of their UEFA Champions League quarter-final having gone down 2-0 at Anfield.

• First-half goals from Naby Keïta and Roberto Firmino on 9 April extended Porto's winless run against the English club and left Liverpool within sight of a second semi-final appearance in as many years.

• The Reds were 5-0 aggregate winners against Porto in last season's round of 16, all the goals coming in the first leg in Portugal. Porto restored some pride with a goalless draw at Anfield but have still never beaten Liverpool in seven attempts.

• While Liverpool are in the last eight for the second season in a row, this is Porto's first UEFA Champions League quarter-final appearance since 2014/15 and only their second since 2008/09. They have not reached the semi-finals in 15 years.

Highlights: Liverpool 2-0 Porto

Previous meetings
• Twelve months ago, a Sadio Mané hat-trick at the Estádio do Dragão helped Liverpool to a 5-0 first-leg victory, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Fimino also finding the net.

• The goalless draw in the return, and the first-leg defeat in this tie, have left Porto with the record D3 L4 in their seven fixtures against the English side.

• All six of the matches between the teams before this tie have come in the 21st century. Their first came in the quarter-finals of Liverpool's victorious 2000/01 UEFA Cup campaign; Gérard Houllier's side drew the first leg 0-0 in Portugal before first-half goals from Danny Murphy and Michael Owen secured a 2-0 second-leg, and aggregate, victory at Anfield.

• The other matches came in the 2007/08 UEFA Champions League group stage. Dirk Kuyt's 17th-minute goal earned Liverpool a 1-1 matchday one draw at Jesualdo Ferreira's Porto, who had gone in front through Lucho González's eighth-minute penalty. The visitors played the majority of the second half with ten men following Jermaine Pennant's 58th-minute red card.

• At Anfield, Lisandro (33) cancelled out Fernando Torres' 19th-minute opener for Rafael Benítez's Liverpool, before late goals from Torres again (78), Steven Gerrard (84pen) and Peter Crouch (87) gave the home team the points. Porto and Liverpool both went through to the last 16, the Portuguese side winning the section; Liverpool went on to reach the semi-finals.

Great Champions League quarter-final goals

Form guide
• Porto's record in European Cup quarter-finals is W2 L5:
2014/15 Bayern München L 4-7 (3-1 h, 1-6 a)
2008/09 Manchester United L 2-3 (2-2 a, 0-1 h)
2003/04 Lyon W 4-2 (2-0 h, 2-2 a)
1999/2000 Bayern München L 2-3 (1-1 h, 1-2 a)

1990/91 Bayern München L 1-3 (1-1 a, 0-2 h)
1986/87 Brøndby W 2-1 (1-0 h, 1-1 a)

• Porto are seeking a first semi-final appearance since 2003/04 when they lifted the trophy under José Mourinho. Their only two victories in seven previous quarter-final appearances came in the seasons when they were crowned European champions.

• Porto's record in two-legged ties with English clubs is W3 L8. They have lost the last five and have not beaten English opposition in a knockout tie since Mourinho's side eliminated Manchester United in the 2003/04 UEFA Champions League round of 16 (2-1 home, 1-1 away).

• Porto have won all four home games in this season's competition, against Galatasaray (1-0), Lokomotiv Moskva (4-1) and Schalke (3-1) in the group stage before a 3-1 extra-time defeat of Roma in the last 16 second leg. They have won eight – and lost five – of their last 15 home European matches.

Porto's Moussa Marega goes close during the first leg

• Their overall home record against English clubs is W8 D6 L4; all four defeats have come in their last seven matches.

• The Dragons had won five European matches in a row, setting a new club record for successive wins and eclipsing their previous best set in the 1996/97 group stage, before losing at Roma. Defeat at Liverpool means they have now lost successive away games. 

• Porto's tally of 16 points was the highest of any club in this season's group stage.

• Porto have won only five of the 21 UEFA competition ties in which they lost the away first leg, although they did turn round their last-16 tie against Roma, following a 2-1 loss in Italy with that 3-1 extra-time win at home. They have lost all four previous ties in which they went down 2-0 away in the first leg, most recently against Borussia Dortmund in the 2015/16 UEFA Europa League round of 32 (0-1 home).

• Porto's record in three UEFA penalty shoot-outs is W1 L2:
1-4 v Schalke, 2007/08 UEFA Champions League round of 16
8-7 v Once Caldas, 2004 European/South American Cup
3-5 v Sampdoria, 1994/95 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup quarter-final

Firmino on 'first step' towards last four

• Liverpool have won ten of their previous 14 European Cup quarter-finals:

2007/08 Arsenal W 5-3 (1-1 a, 4-2 h)
2006/07 PSV Eindhoven W 4-0 (3-0 a, 1-0 h)
2004/05 Juventus W 2-1 (2-1 h, 0-0 a)
2001/02 Bayer Leverkusen L 3-4 (1-0 h, 2-4 a)
1984/85 Austria Wien W 5-2 (1-1 a, 4-1 h)
1983/84 Benfica W 5-1 (1-0 h, 4-1 a)
1982/83 Widzew Łódź L 3-4 (0-2 a, 3-2 h)
1981/82 CSKA Sofia L 1-2 (1-0 h, 0-2 a)
1980/81 CSKA Sofia W 6-1 (5-1 h, 1-0 a)
1977/78 Benfica W 6-2 (2-1 a, 4-1 h)
1976/77 St-Étienne W 3-2 (0-1 a, 3-1 h)
1964/65 Köln W 2-2, Liverpool won on coin toss (0-0 a, 0-0 h, 2-2 n)

• A 3-1 aggregate victory against Bayern München in this season's round of 16 means Liverpool have won their last nine two-legged European ties, qualifying included. Their last defeat was on penalties in the 2014/15 UEFA Europa League round of 32 against Beşiktaş (1-0 home, 0-1 away).

• Last season's tie against Porto gave Liverpool the record W6 L2 in two-legged contests against Portuguese sides.

• The Reds have the record W3 D3 L4 in Portugal; they won on each of their first two visits but last season's win at Porto was their first in eight trips.

• The 3-1 win at Bayern in the round of 16 second leg ended Liverpool's four-game run of European away defeats. They lost all three away games in this season's group stage, at Napoli (0-1), Crvena zvezda (0-2) and Paris Saint-Germain (1-2) and also went down 4-2 at Roma in last season's semi-final second leg (7-6 agg). Jürgen Klopp's side were six unbeaten (W4 D2) before losing in Rome.

• The Reds have lost five of their last ten European matches, all those defeats coming outside England.

• Liverpool have triumphed in 31 UEFA competition ties when they have won the home first leg – including against Manchester City in last season's quarter-finals, and Roma in the semis – and lost only five. On each of the seven occasions that they have won the first leg at home 2-0, they have gone on to win the tie. Their only aggregate loss after a two-goal winning margin in the home first leg came in the 1964/65 European Cup semi-final against Internazionale Milano when a 3-1 home win was overturned by a 3-0 reverse in Italy.

• Liverpool's record in four UEFA penalty shoot-outs is W3 L1:
4-5 v Beşiktaş, 2014/15 UEFA Europa League round of 32
4-1 v Chelsea, 2006/07 UEFA Champions League semi-final
3-2 v AC Milan, 2004/05 UEFA Champions League final
4-2 v Roma, 1983/84 European Champion Clubs' Cup final

Head coach Only this chapter

Sérgio Conceição

Date of birth: 15 November 1974
Nationality: Portuguese
Playing career: Penafiel, Leça, Felgueiras, Porto (twice), Lazio (twice), Parma, Internazionale Milano, Standard Liège, Koweit Qadsia, PAOK
Coaching career: Standard Liège (assistant), Olhanense, Académica de Coimbra, Braga, Vitória SC, Nantes, Porto

• A right winger with an eye for goal, Sérgio Conceição started out in the youth ranks at hometown side Académica and in 1996 joined Porto, where he won two league titles and a Portuguese Cup before leaving for Lazio in 1998. In Rome, he won the 1998/99 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup and the UEFA Super Cup the same summer, as well as a Serie A title and a Coppa Italia double in 1999/2000.

• He rejoined Lazio after spells at Parma and Inter. Returned to Porto in 2003/04, winning another Portuguese league title under José Mourinho, before finishing his career with spells in Belgium, Kuwait and Greece. Scored 12 goals in 56 Portugal games, including a celebrated hat-trick in a 3-0 win against defending champions Germany at UEFA EURO 2000.

• After retiring, worked as PAOK's sporting director and Standard's assistant coach before taking charge of Olhanense back in Portugal midway through 2011/12, guiding the relegation-threatened side to a comfortable eighth-placed finish.

• Returned to his home town Coimbra – where a stadium has been named in his honour – to lead Académica in 2013, and then took Braga to the 2014/15 Portuguese Cup final, where they lost to Sporting CP on penalties.

• Led Vitória Guimarães in 2015/16, and then pulled Nantes out of a relegation nosedive in France the following season, a respectable seventh-placed finish prompting Porto to hire him on a two-year contract in summer 2017. Rewarded them with a first league title in five years in 2017/18, when Porto also reached the UEFA Champions League last 16.


Jürgen Klopp

Date of birth: 16 June 1967
Nationality: German
Playing career: Glatten, Ergenzingen, Pforzheim, Eintracht Frankfurt, Viktoria Sindlingen, Rot-Weiss Frankfurt, Mainz
Coaching career: Mainz, Borussia Dortmund, Liverpool

• Having spent his early career in the lower leagues and failed to break into Eintracht's first team, Klopp turned professional with Mainz, starting off as a striker before becoming a no-nonsense defender. Never played in the top flight but made 325 second-division appearances from 1990 to 2001, setting a club record by scoring 52 goals.

• 'Kloppo', as he is known in Germany, was appointed Mainz's caretaker coach on 28 February 2001, helping the club avoid relegation to the third tier. Duly won a permanent contract and built Mainz into one of the strongest clubs in the 2. Bundesliga; narrowly missed out on promotion in 2002 and 2003 before finally taking Mainz into the top flight for the first time in 2004 and kept them in the Bundesliga until 2007, taking them into the 2005/06 UEFA Cup via the UEFA Fair Play ranking.

• After another promotion near-miss in 2007/08 Klopp left for Dortmund. Took them to sixth in his first season, led them into the UEFA Europa League the next year and then, with a squad full of exciting young talent, oversaw league title wins in 2010/11 and 2011/12, adding the German Cup in the latter campaign with a 5-2 final victory against Bayern München.

• Earned even greater admiration in 2012/13 as he steered Dortmund all the way to the UEFA Champions League final at Wembley, where they lost to Bayern. Dortmund reached another domestic cup final in 2014, but again came up short against Bayern.

• Announced in April 2015 he was leaving Dortmund after that season, which ended with a cup final defeat against Wolfsburg. Succeeded Brendan Rodgers as Liverpool manager in October 2015 and took the team to the finals of the English League Cup and UEFA Europa League – helped by a quarter-final defeat of Dortmund – in his first season. Lost both, and there was more final disappointment in 2017/18, which ended in defeat by Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League decider in Kyiv.
