FC Porto and Liverpool are certainly no strangers. They may play in the Portuguese Primeira Liga and the English Premier League respectively, but they've previously met half a dozen times in the Champions League. 

Of those previous meetings, Liverpool have got the better of the battle, winning four and drawing twice. FC Porto have been on the receiving end of several sizeable defeats, including a 0-5 thrashing in 2018 and most recently a 1-4 loss in April 2019. 

Tonight, the home side will be looking to beat the Reds for the first time ever in this competition. FC Porto will be encouraged by their strong start to the season domestically. They currently sit second in the table after seven games, having not lost a single match. That said, Liverpool's own form is equally as good, with the Merseyside club also yet to taste defeat and currently sitting top of the EPL. 

Liverpool will be further boosted by the return of midfielder Naby Keita, who sat out last Sunday's draw with Brentfield due to a foot injury but is on the bench here. Both Thiago Alcantara and Harvey Elliot remain sidelined and won't make an appearance. James Milner comes into the side at the back, and there's also space for Jordan Henderson. Up front, the trio of Mo Salah, Diogo Jota and Sadio Mane have plenty of goals in them.   

FC Porto will be without defender Chancel Mbemba after he received a red card against Atletico Madrid, but the side is currently on an 18-game unbeaten run in all competitions. This match could be FC Porto's best chance yet to claim a famous Champions League victory against Liverpool. 

Here's how they line up:

FC Porto: Diogo Costa, Corona, Kleper Pepe, Marcano, Sanusi, Otavio, Sergio Oliveira, Uribe, Diaz, Taremi, Martinez.

Liverpool: Alisson, Milner, Matip, van Dijk, Robertson, Jones, Fabinho, Henderson, Salah, Jota, Mane.
