Liverpool return to Champions League action this week seeking to take a bounce towards the quarter-final stage with a ride to Porto.

The Reds scored 23 goals in six games to top group E but will be wary of the two second-half collapses towards Sevilla as they enter the knockout levels.

not since 2009 have Liverpool made the final eight and may be buoyed with their unbeaten record in opposition to Porto after 4 games, two wins and draws.
