"Liverpool are unbeaten in their seven previous European ties with Porto and I expect them to win in the Estadio de Dragao although it is unlikely to be as emphatic a scoreline as last season's last 16 tie when the Reds romped to a 5-0 success", Owen told BetVictor.

Liverpool met Porto in the round of 16 last season, drawing the return 0-0 at Anfield after their runaway first-leg win.

"If you feel not well and had a bad night, we all know a day later and a high intense game, it doesn't sound like exactly the thing you should do".

Who will lift the Champions League trophy?

Liverpool are firm favourites to advance to a semi-final against Barcelona as they go into the match with a 2-0 lead from last week's meeting at Anfield, and having triumphed 5-0 at the same stadium in the same competition last February.

Slightly hard to say what will be the starting eleven of FC Porto after the preview press conference of Sergio Conceicao, but we would bet on: Casillas; Militao, Felipe, Pepe, Telles; Danilo, Herrera; Otavio, Corona, Brahimi; Marega.

"They are everything I like about football". Not because of the result, but because we felt that the team did everything in their power to win the game.

"Liverpool are all about the way that I think about football", the former Portugal global said through a translator. "But pretty much the rest are with us in Porto".

"We were really good in the first leg and we will have to be really good tomorrow again". We think we only have derbies in Germany or in England but then you come to Portugal and they are loud here.

Jurgen Klopp is expected to make a few rotations to his first-team squad but the manager will be happy that Robertson is returning back from suspension and the Scott will take up his place at left-back meaning James Milner will start on the bench.

"His fitness levels are getting better and better", he said.
