Jurgen Klopp’s men secured their passage to the last 16 as group winners on matchday four and so the German was able to make several changes to his starting XI for this one, and they were made to work for their victory.

The hosts nearly fell behind early on when Otavio robbed Kostas Tsimikas of the ball and crossed for Mehdi Taremi, but his header deflected off Joel Matip and just the wrong side of Alisson’s post.

Porto really were looking like the side with something to play for as Evanilson ghosted past Ibrahima Konate to put himself through with Alisson, but the Frenchman recovered just in time to win possession back.

The Reds continued to gift clear cut chances to their visitors as Konate was again caught out and given the burners by Luis Diaz, though somehow Otavio put it wide of the empty net gaping in front of him.
