Porto vs Liverpool: Match Preview, How to Watch Champions League Online, US TV Channel, Live Stream, Start Time

The semifinals of the UEFA Champions League will be revealed on Wednesday when the quarterfinal matchups are complete and four great teams will fight for a spot in the Final in Madrid.

In Portugal, hosts FC Porto have a giant mountain to climb if they want to be in the semis: they have to beat Premier League leaders Liverpool and overcome a 2-0 deficit from the first leg at Anfield.

When Liverpool scored two goals inside the first 25 minutes of the first leg at Anfield, it seemed like the quarterfinal would be over before we even saw the return match; the Reds dominated possession and looked lethal with the ball, and it felt like a matter of time before they wrapped up the tie.

The Portuguese side barely troubled Alisson in goal, and Virgil Van Dijk had an easy night dealing with the Porto strikers.

For the home side to have any shot at an upset, they need to score early and put doubts in Liverpool’s minds, and at the same time, they have to figure out a way to stop Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané on the counter-attack.

Liverpool is massive favorites to advance, but if they allow arrogance to take over and Porto feed off the stadium’s energy and get a quick goal, this could be a fascinating night of Champions League soccer.
