Good for Liverpool: Porto’s Alex Telles suffers freak penalty injury

Liverpool vs Porto

Could Liverpool end up winning a historic double this season?

While most have been focused on Man City’s chances at winning the quadruple, Liverpool could end the season on a massive high.

The Reds could edge out the Sky Blues to claim their first league title in 29 years.

In Europe, after being last season’s Champions League runners-up, Liverpool could go one step further to win the competition.

Liverpool have been drawn against FC Porto in the quarterfinals of the UCL.

Porto are joint top of the Portuguese top flight, behind Benfica on goal difference.

On Saturday the Dragons picked up a crucial away win at Braga.

Porto won the match 3-2 on the road to seal their fourth win on the bounce.

Braga lead Porto 2-1 at the start of the second half. However two penalties, first from Alex Telles and then from Tiquinho, turned the match in Porto’s favour.

However Alex Telles managed to injure himself in a freak incident when he took his spot-kick.

The Porto left-back left the game immediately afterwards, and he’s now a major doubt for the Liverpool match.

Nothing is a coincidence, I believe in destiny and I believe in God, I will soon be well, and I will soon be on the pitch. Thank you for all messages.
