Sadio Mane could reach the landmark of 50 European games for Liverpool when they face FC Porto in the Champions League this evening.

Should he appear in the 8pm GMT kick-off, the No.10 would become the 25th player to reach that figure for the club – joining Phil Thompson and Michael Owen, who also played exactly 50 times. 

Mane, meanwhile, has scored five times in five previous games against Porto, averaging a goal every 79 minutes.

Alisson Becker and Joel Matip have played in every minute of the European campaign so far.

Liverpool are four goals short of recording 700 in all competitions under Klopp.

Porto midfielder Marko Grujic played 16 times for Liverpool in all competitions, including two in the Champions League as a substitute.
