Liverpool travel to Porto this evening for their opening game in the knockout stages of UEFA Champions League 2017/18.
Porto have never beaten Liverpool in four previous attempts but boast more recent UEFA Champions League knockout experience.
While the Portuguese side have recorded two draws and two defeats in their four games against the Merseyside club, they are in the round of 16 for the second year in a row and made the most recent of their five UEFA Champions League quarter-final appearances in 2014/15.
Liverpool, by contrast, were last in this stage in 2008/09 – although they did go on to the last eight in that season.
Porto progressed to the 2017/18 knockout rounds by finishing second in Group G, while Liverpool remained unbeaten in winning Group E.
The match will be shown live on BT Sport 2 from 7.00pm with live streaming on BTSport.com and via the BT Sport app. Kick-off 7.45pm
BT will also air Real Madrid v PSG on BT Sport 3.
