Defending Portuguese Champion FC Porto hopes to pull off a Manchester United-style miracle by overcoming a 2-0 first-leg deficit to win their UEFA Champions League quarterfinal tie and advance to the semifinal round. But Liverpool FC has other ideas, with Manager Jurgen Klopp promising that his English Premier League-leading side will be playing to win in Portugal, according to The Independent newspaper, and has no plans to simply park the bus to protect their two-goal lead. Porto has history against them as well, never having won a European tie after losing the first leg by at least two goals on six previous occasions. But they will be trying to reverse all of that in the match that will live stream from Portugal.

Liverpool also faced Porto in a Champions League match last season at the Estádio do Dragão — and won by a lopsided 5-0 tally, according to UEFA.com. But Klopp says that this game bears no relation to that contest.
“From the first kick, they will go with a clear direction. If we were 2-0 down and going into the home leg, would we think we were out? No way,” Klopp told the BBC. “That’s exactly what Porto are thinking.”
The winner of the FC Porto vs. Liverpool FC quarterfinal goes on to face FC Barcelona in the semifinal after the Spanish champions cruised past Manchester United on Tuesday 3-0 to win their quarterfinal by a 4-0 aggregate score, according to the BBC.
