Klopp taking nothing for granted ahead of Liverpool's clash with Porto

  • Sergio Conceicao has been hugely impressed by Liverpool

"The important thing is that we go to the semi-finals, but I'm happy for the win and for how we did it", he said.

"Taking off the first five minutes, where we were cold and a little nervous, I do not know if the result was weird and that made us come out that way", he said to Movistar.

"But to be that you have to win trophies and that's something we haven't done yet".

"Hendo is all fine", said Jürgen Klopp ahead of the clash at Estadio do Dragao. "They know how to influence a game and an opponent and we have to be ready for this atmosphere". It's not about how good our season has been to now.

Like Robertson, centre-back Pepe and midfielder Hector Herrera missed last week's game at Anfield due to suspension, but both are free to play for the hosts at the Dragao.

Ajax's comeback upsets at Real Madrid (Round of 16) and Juventus (Quarterfinal) in this season's competition could also give FC Porto a boost of belief heading into Wednesday's home match.


"If we were 2-0 down and going into the home leg, would we think we were out?"

Liverpool travel to Porto for the second time in two seasons, having blown the Portuguese champions away in the round of 16 past year, but both Klopp and Milner placed little significance on that 5-0 victory. We will have to play at our limit, 100 per cent, and not try to (just) come through somehow because then you cannot stand the power they can create here. They had chances, and we were very clinical on the counter-attack.

Porto had a hard time defending the space in the back of the defence and Liverpool players could easily enter the back of our defensive line.

Joel Matip will nearly certainlyalmost partner Virgil van Dijk in the heart of the Liverpool defence on Wednesday.

Dejan Lovren has not travelled with the Liverpool squad but Klopp confirmed Joe Gomez will be fit to feature from the bench, having not played for the first team since suffering a leg fracture in December.

Since the start of the 2017-18 tournament, Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino has both scored and assisted in five different Champions League matches, more than any other player in this time. "You have to remember what a season he played until he got injured".
