Liverpool inspected the Estadio do Dragao field for the final quarter-final round of the Champions League against Porto on Wednesday night.
The side of Jurgen Klopp holds a 2-0 lead towards the European clash against the Portuguese outfit, thanks to goals from Naby Keita and Roberto Firmino.
And on the eve of the second leg in Portugal, the Reds took their unknown surroundings as they walked through the Porto grass in their club-training suits.

The gentlemen such as Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino appeared very cheerful when they adapted to their new environment on Tuesday.
And they go to the Champions League match with confidence, because they are out to dump Porto out of the competition for the second time in a row and to book their place in the semi-final, where they will face Barcelona.
The last time they left two goals ahead of losing a match was in Bournemouth in December 2016. However, that did not stop Jurgen Klopp from reinforcing the message that nothing had been decided.
& # 39; I always tell the boys the truth when I analyze & # 39 ;, Klopp said at his pre-match press conference. & # 39; I don't make things bigger or smaller than they are.

& # 39; When we play Manchester City, I am not saying they have no idea about football or say it is the best team in the world. We analyze for us.
& # 39; There is no risk of convincing the boys that Porto is really good. They already know. We played Roma and they can be an uncomfortable opponent, but I didn't really see a chance for them when they played Porto (in the last 16). Porto was in control. So we have to be prepared. & # 39;
Meanwhile, Barcelona booked their place in the last four with a comfortable 3-0 win over Manchester United on Tuesday and won 4-0 out of the total.
