Liverpool and Porto played out a drab goalless draw on Tuesday, but progression to the Champions League quarter-finals was all that mattered for the Reds.

It was never going to be a classic, with the tie effectively put to bed at Estadio do Dragao three weeks ago.

Chances were few and far between at Anfield, although Sadio Mane did hit the post in the first-half and substitute Danny Ings was denied by Iker Casillas in the final minutes.

The stalemate means Jurgen Klopp‘s side progress to the last-eight with a 5-0 aggregate triumph, and they can now await a meeting with a European heavyweight in the next round.

Here’s how supporters reacted to the game on social media.

It was a fairly slow game of football, and fans couldn’t ignore that fact……

“We’ve got what we want, Porto got what they want… all in all calm 0-0 and everyone is pleased. A game to forget.”

There were a few Man of the Match contenders, on a night when nobody shone too bright……

“Moreno my MOTM. Don’t think any other player really stood out as being above average (probably Ingsy the only other). Karius will likely get the obligatory ‘there was no-one else’ vote, but he made a single save in 93 mins which really wasn’t going to influence the tie.”

Once the final whistle blew, thoughts were already turning to the quarter-finals……

“I want either Roma/Shaktar or Madrid. No English team please or Barcelona.”
