There may not have been much doubt, but the Reds ride out of Portugal having advanced to the Champions League semi-final for the second consecutive year. After a slow start, Liverpool finished off Porto 4-1 in Estadio do Dragao.

Liverpool all but had secured placement in the next round against Barcelona with a 2-0 first leg win at Anfield. Yet, making sure there was no doubt was definitely on the mind of the side, although it might not have been as obvious at first.
