Liverpool face Porto in Champions League


Liverpool have been drawn to face FC Porto in the first knockout round of the Champions League.

Jurgen Klopp will take his side to Portugal for the first leg on 14th February for a Valentines Day showdown and the return leg will be played at Anfield on 6th March.

And the German is pleased to have the home leg after the trip to face the Primeira Liga runners-up.

“It’s just good that we now know it.” he told

“Last Wednesday, when we knew we were still involved, that was our big dream: we didn’t care who we would get. It was clear it would be a strong side.

“Porto are a strong side, first in the Portuguese league and always good. This year again they’re a difficult side to play.

“They came through in a difficult group; they kept Leipzig – a really good side in Germany – behind them.

“It will be interesting. It’s good that we have the first game at Porto, the weather is better there in February! Then in March we meet them at Anfield.

“We are really looking forward to it.” he finished.
