On Tuesday evening, eight Champions League matches will be contested, with two games each from Groups A through D.
There are several intriguing matches on the schedule, like Man City vs. PSG and AC Milan vs. Atletico Madrid, but our football writers are most interested in Porto vs. Liverpool.
This Group B match will begin at 20:00 GMT and will be played in front of a huge audience.
Both teams are hoping to go to the knockout rounds of this competition, but the pressure is on because they are in the same pool as AC Milan and Atletico Madrid.
If Porto wants to defy the odds and secure Champions League participation in the new year, they must make home advantage count throughout this Group B campaign.
Liverpool supporters expect the Reds to win this match, finish first in their group, and win the trophy once more.

PSG vs Manchester City Prediction
Porto is well aware of the magnitude of the job before of them as they attempt to unseat the group leaders and get to the top of the pool.
Of course, it’s easier said than done, and with Liverpool’s offense in such good form, the locals must play solid defense.
They’ll be cheered on by a large crowd, and they’ll assess their prospects of winning this match. At this point, a split of the spoils would be a good outcome for Porto.
Liverpool is well aware of the expectations placed on them. They need to keep creating opportunities and scoring goals, but supporters were upset to see them surrender two points in the championship chase over the weekend. That day, the defense was to fault, but the players have the experience and talent to put that behind them and get back to work.
Liverpool may be playing on the road, but their fans will want them to win, and if they are at their best, they should be able to do so.
