Champions League: Liverpool Vs. Porto Round Of 16 Dates, Times Revealed

Champions League: Liverpool Vs. Porto Round Of 16 Dates, Times Revealed

Jurgen Klopp does not have any complaints following his side's Champions League draw, which sees the Merseyside club face FC Porto in the last 16 of the competition.

We took a look at how Liverpool fans reacted to the hero of Istanbul on social media.

Liverpool were delighted to top the group, after a recent history of disappointing displays in Europe's premier competition. German fans are less reliable visitors and the French can not be counted on at all, according to Mike Eastwood, the cathedral's chief officer.

Liverpool secured their place in the knockout rounds of the Champions League for the first time since 2009 a week ago when they demolished Spartak Moscow. An element of predictability came into play and as soon as January arrived teams knew how to stop them and this was evident with their inability to string together consecutive wins until April.

"Porto are a strong side, first in the Portuguese league and always good", he told Liverpool's website. "If they can get teams back to Anfield then anything can happen, no matter what happens in the first legs".

On when his preparations begin, the Reds boss declared that they "have time" and noted that the Portuguese top-flight "doesn't have a proper winter break" with only "one week or 10 days off".

"We dreamt of this", Klopp added, "so we are really looking forward to playing the games".

The Premier League title was as good as wrapped up just 16 games into the campaign by Manchester City sumptuous performance amid their 2-1 victory against United at Old Trafford, with Mourinho's post match claims that his side were cheated out of a draw by a poor refereeing decision lacking any credibility on a day when his team had been outclassed.

All the form that had been built up at the start of the season and that scintillating unbeaten run had been undone by a couple of months of inconsistency. For his part, Klopp did not go into too many details about how his side would approach the game in a tactical sense. That's how it is.

After all, nothing says "I love you" like a bit of Champions League football. "Then, of course, Anfield must make the difference", he finished.
