The visitors from Portugal seemed keen and motivated to pick up points at Anfield and already after 12 minutes they caught Liverpool in a conversion, which sent Evanilson alone away from the center and down towards Alisson. With him he had Otavio who in the middle of goal sent the cross ball from Eavnilson past an empty goal. A huge chance to take the lead, which could seriously kick faith into the blue-and-white Porto players. The home team, on the other hand, looked like a team in the beginning of the match, which did not unfold quite as usual, and on the stands there was not the usual Anfield atmosphere. Small 24 minute play was made for Porto cliff Pepe for an injury put an end to the captain's participation in the match. A bitter pill for the away team and head coach Sergio Conceicao, and the ensuing minutes, the Porto defense seemed shaken, while both Mane and Salah began to bid without it becoming really dangerous. Class does not deny itself, however, and a big-playing Thiago found with a nice deep ball Mane, who certainly converted the offer into scoring. However, Mane was snatched on offside and after a brief VAR review, it turned out that Mane's shoulder was too far forward and the goal was canceled.
