Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Estadio Do Dragao will host Wednesday’s football game between Porto and Liverpool, who face each other in the Champions League quarter-finals, return leg. As expected, Liverpool recorded a routine 2-0 win over Porto at Anfield and they are now on a quest to defend their solid lead. The Reds are enjoying yet another season to remember and we are positive that they are going to advance to the semis of the elite competition without any difficulties.
Roberto Firmino, who found the net in the first leg, will lead the line for the visitors against Porto. The Dragons have no other choice but to go all guns blazing at the Reds, meaning that the visitors will have a number of opportunities to score on the break. Given the attacking potential of Jurgen Klopp’s team, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the Premier League side.
Highlighted Player (Yacine Brahimi):
French-born Algerian attacking midfielder Yacine Brahimi is a technically gifted footballer, who can also fill in at winger position. The 26-year-old midfielder started his career as a proper footballing nomad, going through various clubs’ youth ranks before settling at Rennes. French Ligue 1 side gave Brahimi his professional debut in 2009.
After spells at Clermont and Granada which resulted in Brahimi’s sale to the Spanish outfit, Brahimi moved to Porto where he achieved his full international recognition. The Algerian midfielder settled immediately and was exceptional in his first six months at the Portuguese club. His mesmerizing dribbling skills and creative abilities have quickly made his one of Porto’s key men in the centre of the park. Consistent performances and thrilling displays have earned Yacini Brahimi picked up the African Footballer of the Year for 2014.
The fabulously gifted player has been turning heads across Europe with top clubs from the continent lining up behind him. At 26 years of age Brahimi still has plenty of time in front of him and is expected to reach further heights with his club in the Champions League.
Highlighted Team (Liverpool):
Founded back in 1892, Liverpool are one of England’s and world’s most famous clubs. The Reds hold a high-profile rivalry with Everton and there have always been fireworks when the two teams take on each other in the Merseyside derby.
The Reds welcome their opponents at Anfield and it has to be noted that they have already won 18 first division trophies. Liverpool were on the verge of lifting the 2014/2015 Premier League trophy, but Steven Gerrard slipped in the decider against Chelsea and left the Reds without a title.
Liverpool won their last Champions League trophy in 2005, with the team coming from three goals behind to beat Milan in a historic clash in Istanbul. The Reds have clinched five European Cups and it is no surprise they are regarded as one of the greatest European clubs.
The likes of Steven Gerrard, Robbie Fowler, Paul Ince, Ian Rush, Graeme Souness, Sami Hyypia and Luis Suarez are some of the most notable footballers to have represented the club over the years. The club’s anthem is You’ll Never Walk Alone and their shirt colour is red.
