The Best Liverpool Goals Against FC Porto

As the Reds prepare to take on FC Porto on Tuesday, we take a look back at the pick of the goals from previous encounters.

The Reds face FC Porto on Tuesday night in a Champions League Group B clash looking to build on the victory over AC Milan on matchday one.

The Estadio do Dragao stadium has been a happy hunting ground in recent years and Jurgen Klopp will therefore be hoping his team can carry on in the same vein.

We have taken a look back through the archives at some of Liverpool's best goals against the two time Champions League winners.

Liverpool 4-1 FC Porto (28th November 2007)

Fernando Torres - 78th minute

Fernando Torres' second goal in this encounter restored Liverpool's lead after Lisandro Lopez had cancelled out the Spanish striker's opener.

After being played in down the left, Torres showed his strength to win the ball before firing an unstoppable shot into the back of the net at the Kop end.

Liverpool eventually ran out 4-1 winners when further goals were added from a Steven Gerrard penalty and a Peter Crouch header.

Mohamed Salah - 29th Minute

FC Porto 0-5 Liverpool (14th February 2018)

Liverpool took the Estadio do Dragao by storm in the first leg of this last 16 Champions League encounter.

Sadio Mane gave Liverpool the lead in the 25th minute and the lead was doubled four minutes later when Mohamed Salah showed extraordinary composure to find the back of the net.

James Milner saw his fine curling effort rebound off the post to Salah who took three touches under pressure from the Porto goalkeeper and defence before calmly stroking the ball home.

It was a moment of individual brilliance from Salah and gave Liverpool a 2-0 advantage.

Roberto Firmino - 69th Minute

FC Porto 0-5 Liverpool (14th February 2018)

Mane added a third for Liverpool on the same night before another sweeping move saw them take a 4-0 lead.

The Senegal striker who went on to complete his hattrick played in Milner on the left. 

Liverpool's vice captain who was enjoying a terrific Champions League campaign cut the ball back where it was met by Roberto Firmino who side footed home with precision.

The celebration from the Brazilian was another memorable moment on a fantastic night for the travelling supporters.

Sadio Mane - 85th minute

FC Porto 0-5 Liverpool (14th February 2018)

Mane completed his hattrick with a terrific strike in the 85th minute which secured a resounding 5-0 victory.

He received the ball 25 yards from goal and unleashed an unstoppable shot into the left corner of the net giving the keeper no chance.

Liverpool would go on to confirm their passage to the quarter final to face local rivals Manchester City when they played out a 0-0 draw with the Portuguese team at Anfield three weeks later.

Roberto Firmino - 26th Minute

Liverpool 2-0 FC Porto (9th April 2019)

A year later and this time Liverpool were drawn against Porto in the quarter finals of the same competition.

Naby Keita sent the Anfield fans wild when he opened the scoring courtesy of a deflection in the 5th minute of the first leg.

Firmino then ensured Liverpool had a 2-0 cushion to take to Portugal when he tapped home Trent Alexander-Arnold's cross in the 26th minute, a goal which was the climax to a fine team move.

Mohamed Salah - 65th Minute

FC Porto 1-4 Liverpool (17th April 2019)

Liverpool returned to Portugal looking for the crucial away goal which would mean Porto would need to score four in return to qualify.

In the 26th minute Mane tapped home a Salah pass for the opening goal which was eventually given by VAR after initially being ruled out for offside.

The tie was then killed off by Klopp's men in the 65th minute when Salah raced onto a defence splitting through ball from Alexander-Arnold to clinically slot home.

Porto pulled a goal back three minutes later through Militao but further goals from Firmino and Virgil Van Dijk put the seal on another convincing away victory. 

Their opponents in the Champions League semi final would be the Spanish side Barcelona in what became one of the most talked about clashes of all time.
