Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has called on Liverpool supporters to create an exceptional atmosphere when Porto visits Anfield on Wednesday. Liverpool has been in scintillating form in the Champions League, winning all four of their games. They have ensured that they will top their group irrespective of the results in their last two games. Although the game is a dead rubber for the home side, Porto is second in the group and could still be leapfrogged by Milan or Atletico Madrid.
“We know that our opponent will be motivated on the highest level for two main reasons. One is that we won there in a way that they didn’t like, and on the other hand, if they win the game tomorrow night, they have a final against Atletico in the last match of the group.” Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said. “It will be a difficult game for us and I really hope that Anfield is at its best. It’s the Champions League – you can never take it for granted. We need to be ready as a whole, all together, to put a proper fight out there.”
“I have no explanation really for the result we had at Porto. Yes, we were really good in moments, but the last game was really unlucky for Porto,” he added. “They were without their No 1 center-half pairing, had an early injury in the game – all these things didn’t help. We scored in the wrong moments for them, so it all came together.”
