class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>With both teams in strong form in defence, Al Hain-Cole does not expect another goal fest when the Reds take on Conceicao's men at the Dragao
Familiar foes will reunite at the Estadio do Dragao when Porto take on Liverpool in Tuesday’s Champions League clash.
These sides have faced each other in two of the last four seasons, with the Reds winning three and losing none out of four encounters – scoring 11 goals and conceding just one.
Porto vs Liverpool latest odds
Unbeaten in eight fixtures so far this campaign, Liverpool are priced at 8/11 (1.73) with bet365 to make it six points from six in Group B by coming out on top here for the third visit in row.
Sergio Conceicao’s men have won each of their last seven matches on home turf and Porto are available at 15/4 (4.75) to pull off a big victory over the six-times champions.
The hosts held Atletico Madrid to a 0-0 away draw in their first group game and are on offer at 14/5 (3.80) to earn a creditable point in this one.

Porto vs Liverpool team news
Chancel Mbemba is suspended after his red card in Madrid, with Pepe and Agustin Marchesin both doubtful due to injury.
Neco Williams will face a late fitness test, while Naby Keita, Thiago and Harvey Elliott are all definitely unfit to play.
Porto vs Liverpool preview
While they have scored nine goals in their last two visits to this ground, it is hard to see Jurgen Klopp’s team enjoying similar success given the home defence’s recent record.
Porto have gone three matches without conceding in their own back yard this campaign and have kept a clean sheet in seven of their previous 10 games in this competition.
However, they have also only found the net themselves once in their three most recent Champions League fixtures, so may struggle to break down an away backline that has kept seven clean sheets in their last 10 matches.
Porto vs Liverpool tips & predictions
Having played out a 0-0 draw against Atletico Madrid last time out, odds of 11/10 (2.10) look like good value on Porto ensuring goals are restricted to one end at most for their ninth Champions League match in 11 and a ninth in 12 for Liverpool.
