Ian Doyle and James Pearce have overcome (possibly) a late night and (definitely) the cleanliness hotel in the world to record a special Blood Red podcast from Porto. They are joined by Simon Hughes, author and journalist, and by David Lynch, who is the Liverpool correspondent for the Evening Standard. And after Simon explains the bad blood that still exists between him and James, the quartet get down to the business of previewing tonight's Champions League quarter-final second-leg at Estadio do Dragao. Topics include how both teams will approach the tie, why the Portuguese champions' perceived happiness at the end of the first leg could be misplaced, as well those pre-match comments made by the Porto manager about the Reds being the best team in the world. And, despite the never-ending hoovering in the background, the panel also discuss whether there will be any fallout from Mohamed Salah's tackle at Anfield, why confidence abounds in the Liverpool fan base, and why Jurgen Klopp may go back to what he knows this evening. Enjoy.
