'Deserves more credit' - Liverpool fans hail star in Porto win

Adjust Comment Print

Liverpool breezed past Porto, as expected, with a 4-1 victory away from home to win 6-1 on aggregate.

On a wet night at the Estadio do Dragao, Liverpool weathered an early storm against Porto before scoring from their first attempt just before the half-hour, Sadio Mane prodding home for a goal given after a lengthy VAR review.

After the break, Liverpool put the tie all but out of Porto's reach when Alexander-Arnold split their defence with a low, diagonal pass to Salah, who guided the ball into the bottom-left corner of the net easily.

"Against Porto, for example, we suffered a little at the beginning of the game, but we scored the goals in the opportunities we found". Barca were impressive against Man United but I don't think they're as good as two or three years ago.

Liverpool are set to pocket a £80million windfall for reaching the Champions League semi-finals, based on confirmed Uefa figures.

They struggled for results for the next two weeks, but the Reds fought back well to keep in touch with Manchester City for the Premier League title and in the hunt for the Champions League as well.

In contrast to the likes of Barcelona and Juventus, Liverpool's hopes of landing a first English league championship since 1990 meant that they couldn't rest players this weekend. Second year in the semi-finals is a big statement.

"It's always us against everyone and I think that's the only way we can defend well. I know how good they are, because obviously knocking Real Madrid and Juventus out is insane". Alisson has kept 18 clean sheets in Liverpool's Premier League campaign with four games left.

"For us to be in the semi-finals is unbelievable".

"It is first time for me to play Barcelona, apart from in friendlies". We deserved more, the fans deserved more, but we gave a very positive image of Portuguese football.

"The big difference is that it doesn't cost us confidence".

At the beginning in the Champions League they surprised everyone but now it's not a surprise any more.
