Last season,Liverpoolcouldn't retain the Premier League trophy, but this year the Reds are on an impressive run: in 12 rounds they recorded 7 victories and 4 draws, and with 25 points are currently 3rd in the league, four points behind the leaders, Chelsea.

Porto kicked off their Champions League campaign with a goalless draw with Atletico, and in the following game they suffered a crushing defeat at the hands of Liverpool (1:5). Sérgio Conceição's men recovered from that by getting a narrow win against the Rossoneri (1:0), and in the return game in Milan, Porto got a draw (1:1).
