Game Preview

Unbeaten Dragons

Porto didn’t lose a single match since the start of the season. They have five wins and three draws, one of them being on the road in the opening match of this UCL edition.

A point in Madrid against Atletico could be a decisive factor in the final standings. Still, Porto wants to make another surprise and stay unbeaten versus the biggest favorites for the top spot in Group B. 

They have played three games at Dragao since the start of the campaign, posting a victory in each of them while keeping clean sheets. On the other side, Porto netted 10 times during this period. Overall, six of all eight games this unit played saw two or three goals. 

Reds’ Unplanned Mistake

Even though Brentford opened the EPL adventure pretty well, we didn’t expect to see them snapping a point against Liverpool. The final result of this match was 3-3, and to be honest, this was a real kick in the teeth for the Reds, who had a lead on two occasions.

The event against the Bees was only the third in eight this campaign, with Liverpool conceding, and since Virgil Van Dijk came back, the Reds’ defense is looking rock solid again.

However, AC Milan managed to score twice in the first round, beating Alisson twice in the short span. It woke up Liverpool’s strikers, who quickly flipped the results, showing clinical striking in the most important moments. 

FC Porto vs. Liverpool Head to Head Matches
