We're underway at Anfield! 90 minutes separate Liverpool from the quarter-finals!
Prev.
A minute's silence is observed in memory of Fiorentina captain Davide Astori, who passed away on Sunday.
Prev.
The teams emerge from the tunnel. It's difficult to foresee after their display in the first half, but will Porto cause Liverpool any problems?
Prev.
Stunning atmosphere inside Anfield as usual. The Champions League has missed these magical nights at the iconic stadium.
Prev.
Warm-ups are done. Not long to go here...
Prev.
Porto might have performed poorly in the first leg and have very little chance of progressing, but they are still well supported at Anfield tonight.
Prev.
No team has ever progressed to the next round after a 5-0 first-leg home defeat in the Champions League. Furthermore, Liverpool have never lost by more than two clear goals at Anfield in the knockout stages of the Champions League.
Prev.
Casillas has plenty of experience in the competition.
Prev.
Salah is on the bench just in case, but these two look to have things covered.
Prev.
How Liverpool arrived at Anfield...

For Porto, top scorer Aboubakar starts after missing the first leg with injury and Casillas replaces Sa in goal.
