Anfield is ready for Liverpool’s Champions League quarterfinal first leg against FC Porto.
After an impressive 3-1 victory over Southampton on Friday night, which saw the Reds return to the top of the Premier League, Jurgen Klopp’s side are in buoyant mood and full of confidence ahead of Tuesday night’s game.
“We are very ambitious. We will try everything. It’s at Anfield. It’s a quarter-final, and it’s a big one for us,” said Klopp in his pre-match press conference. “This is our second year in the Champions League, not year number 12 or whatever.
“We are not Real Madrid who have won it the last three times. We like the competition and we will try everything to win the game.”
The Reds will be without Andy Robertson as he serves a suspension after picking up a late booking at Bayern Munich in the previous round. James Milner is expected to stabd in.
“We had little problems after the game, back problems here, Gini Wijnaldum a little back problem, Joel, I think even Virgil from a fall on the ground,” added Klopp. “But they all should be OK, hopefully.”
The game will be shown in the UK on BT Sport 3 and via the BT Sport app.
