The Champions League has returned from its winter break.

For five-time European Cup winners Liverpool, they face FC Porto for a place in the competition’s quarter finals.

Thousands of Reds have made the journey to Porto ahead of the first leg and, as the footage below shows, many of them appear to have congregated in one of the Portuguese city’s bars on the eve of the big game.

With little over 24 hours to go before kick off at the Estádio do Dragão, they were seen (and very much heard) belting out a song in honour of Mo Salah. The Egyptian international has been a huge success since arriving on Merseyside from AS Roma in the summer, already finding the back of the net 30 times for Jürgen Klopp’s side.

Liverpool’s exit from the FA Cup at the hands of West Brom means their next match after Porto will in ten days, when they face West Ham in the Premier League.

They currently sit third in the table, though the chances of them (or anyone else) catching Manchester City appear virtually impossible.
