Liverpool will play host to Porto on Thursday in their next UEFA Champions League match at Anfield as things get heated in Group B for the round of 16 qualifications. The Reds have confirmed their berth for the knockout round of the European tournament with four back to back victories, including a double over Diego Simeone’s Atlético de Madrid.

Liverpool are coming into this game after a 4-0 win over Arsenal in Premier League while Porto hammered Feirense 5-1 in the fourth round of Taça de Portugal.
The UCL match between Liverpool and Porto is slated to begin at 01:30 am (IST).
