A goal-fest was never likely to be on the menu when Atletico and Porto locked horns on the opening matchday, and with Diego Simeone‘s side only mustering six shots as the visitors chalked up five, there were no goals to be had at the Wanda Metropolitano.
Chancel Mbemba saw red in the dying embers, but by that point it was too late for Antoine Griezmann and Luis Suarez to make their side’s extra man count as Conceicao’s side claimed a highly creditable point at the home of the La Liga champions.
Still unbeaten in all competitions this term, Porto warmed up for the visit of Liverpool in ideal fashion with a 2-1 league success away to Gil Vicente, as Mehdi Taremi caught Ziga Frelih off his line from 40 yards before Sergio Oliveira won the day with an 89th-minute free kick.
The hosts may certainly need such long-range inspiration to produce a positive result against Liverpool, but they can take confidence from their 18-game unbeaten run in all competitions since defeat to Chelsea in last year’s quarter-finals, while they have won their last nine on the bounce at home.
Conceicao’s side also held Manchester City to a goalless stalemate and claimed a 2-1 win over Juventus at the Estadio do Dragao last term – as well as beating Marseille and Olympiacos with two clean sheets to boot – so Liverpool cannot expect as much joy in front of goal on matchday two.

Prior to AC Milan’s trip to Anfield in gameweek one of the 2021-22 Champions League, the two sides had only ever met twice before in any competition – the infamous 2005 final and slightly more low-key 2007 final of Europe’s elite tournament.
The encounter on Merseyside would have been fit for the showpiece event, as Milan scored all three goals in the first half – Fikayo Tomori‘s own goal preceding Ante Rebic and Brahim Diaz‘s quickfire strikes – but Mohamed Salah and Jordan Henderson turned the tie on its head in the second half as Jurgen Klopp‘s men came up trumps.
