Liverpool v Porto: Player shortage at Porto before UCL quarter-final

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Alex Telles suffered an injury in latest round of league fixtures in Portugal. He did some light training recently but is nowhere near the fitness needed for a tie like this.

His replacements,… Errr! Sorry, Porto don’t have any Alex Telles replacements. The one and only left back in their squad, without whom they have 19 players, 3 of them goalkeepers.

Clubs usually play someone out of position when faced with a situation like this, but the strength (or weakness?) of Porto’s squad doesn’t allow even for such tinkering.

Liverpool will in all likelihood go into the match against a make-shift left back and the wingers must already be smelling blood. Porto it seems are all but a meal Klopp’s men must devour to reach the semi-finals.

All hail the injury lords!
