Porto head coach Sergio Conceicao says his side did not deserve to lose their Champions League quarter-final 6-1 on aggregate to Liverpool.

Salah (23), Mane (22) and Roberto Firmino (16) have scored 61 of Liverpool's 97 goals this season while they also have 24 assists between them.

Leading 2-0 from the first leg at Anfield, Liverpool were forced to survive an early bombardment in the saturated Estadio do Dragao before taking control.

"They had some half chances".

On facing Messi, who scored twice in Barca's 2-1 win over Manchester United on Tuesday, Klopp said: Thank God I don't have to think about that tonight and thank God I have a few more nights to think about it!

Liverpool have chose to reciprocate Barcelona's decision to charge away fans €119 for their Champions League semi-final tie and will use the extra funds to subsidise travelling supporters. I really admire him and respect what he's doing so far'.

One of the main advantages that Barcelona have going into this tie is how they practically have the league title wrapped up due to a nine-point lead with six games remaining, whereas, the Reds are in the midst of a fierce title race with Manchester City.

This was their 17th game without defeat and their eighth straight victory, although Barcelona will offer a far tougher test than Porto. We play on Sunday against Cardiff.

So far weve heard that the Pro will have a larger screen (6.64” vs. 6.4”) with a pop-up selfie camera instead of a teardrop notch. They've got 120Hz touch-sensing, which means they're tracking your touches more accurately than on phones without said feature.

"It is first time for me to play Barcelona, apart from in friendlies". However, the Belgian only played the first half before making way for Firmino.

Within 100 seconds Jesus Corona had powered into Liverpool's area and curled a shot narrowly over the crossbar.

"Liverpool fans prefer [to win] the league", Jurgen Klopp has said.

"We had hard away games and we knew it would be the same as at City and Roma previous year". Goals are coming from different people all over the pitch.

The offside flag came up but Dutch referee Danny Makkelie conferred with his video assistants before awarding the goal. Porto 0-1 Liverpool.

Porto grabbed one back through Militao but it was all too little too late, and Liverpool hadn't finished.

"We played better this season". We are looking forward to it but we have so many jobs to do before we meet Barcelona.
