Hello and welcome to our live coverage of this UEFA Champions League round of 16 clash between FC Porto and Liverpool, from the Estadio do Dragao .
Jurgen Klopp has decided to take a full squad of 25 players to Portugal and they will travel to Spain for a training camp following this match.
Porto have not been beaten in their last 23 matches. They have also only had one defeat in the group stage of this Competition, when they went down to Besiktas.
We expect a late decision on the availability of Porto's Vincent Aboubakar, who did not practice with the team over the last few day.
Our Referee is Daniele Orsato from Italy.
Emre Can will miss this game for Liverpool, as he is currently serving a suspension.
TEAM PORTO: Jose Sa, Ricardo, Reyes, Marcano, Alex Telles, Herrera, Sergio Oliveira, Otavio, Brahimi, Marega. Substitutes: Casillas, Maxi Pereira, Osorio, Oliver, Corona, Waris, Goncalo Paciencia.
TEAM LIVERPOOL: Karius, Alexander-Arnold, Van Dijk, Lovren, Robertson, Milner, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Mane, Salah, Firmino. Substitutes: Mignolet, Matip, Moreno, Gomez, Lallana, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ings.
Kick off! We are off here in a very very wet Porto, as Daniele Orsato starts proceedings.
Liverpool control an early spell of possession.
The first corner of the game is awarded to Porto. Telles takes the kick but it is cleared.
Both Van Dijk and Marega challenges for a header and Van Dijk comes off second best! Strange!
Porto is very close as Otavio's shot is deflected for a corner. It only just floated over. Shaky defense again from Liverpool. The corner is cleared.
Roberson tries a long range shot, but it powers over the bar.
The game is starting to open up now.
Liverpool win a free-kick after Mane is brought down by Marega.
The Reds have obviously been practicing their long range passes and Van Dijk especially have tried exploiting it.
Salah with space on his side, tries to find Mane, but the shot at goal is deflected for a corner. The corner is cleared and they win another, but that too is cleared.
Firmino goes down in the box after a good build up, but somehow Marcano gets a boot to it.
Both teams are still feeling each other out here a bit. Who will get the first goal?
GOAL, LIVERPOOL, MANE!
A huge error by the young Porto keeper after a good build up. Wijnaldum set that up for Mane, but Jose Sa should have saved it, instead it went past him.
FC PORTO 0-2 LIVERPOOL.
GOAL, LIVERPOOL, SALAH!
Milner fires a shot at goal but it hits the post. Once again it does not happen for the Porto keeper, as it bounces in Salah's path who gently slots it into the net. Two away goals now!
Porto win a corner, but they mess it up and almost concede a goal on the counter attack.
This is looking far too easy for Liverpool. Are we going to have the same twist as in recent games against the bigger teams?
Firmino tries his luck from 30 meters, but it goes over the top.
Porto misses another chance as Otavio sends a low shot wide.
We will have one minute of time added on for stoppages.

Milner is lucky to get away with a very late challenge.
It is then Corona's turn to get away with a challenge on Robertson.

The counter attack was always going to be Liverpool's strength.
Marega has a shot at goal, but it's a easy clearance for Karius.

What a magnificent counter attack from Liverpool. Once again it's a Firmino backheel that sends Salah away and after a one-two with Firmino, Mane finishes it on the rebound.
Liverpool lead by three, with a half an hour to go.
Liverpool is at it again and this time Alexander-Arnold crosses it for Firmino, who cannot quite get there.
Van Dijk takes his eye off the ball, as he tackles Corona. That could have been the start of a disaster for The Reds. He concedes a corner.
