Virgil van Dijk – under 0.5 tackles – 11/8 (LIVERPOOL vs FC Porto)

Virgil van Dijk, Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool

Liverpool are overwhelming favourites to swarm all over Porto at Anfield this week in the teams’ Quarter Final first leg encounter.

Jurgen Klopp’s men are expected to press and attack from the off against the side they dismantled in last year’s competition, and most of the play on Tuesday will likely be in Porto’s half of the pitch.

That should leave the imperious Virgil van Dijk largely untested this week. The Dutchman has had an incredible season so far in 2018/19, though it might surprise you to learn that he has averaged just 1 tackle per Premier League game this term, and only 0.3 tackles on average per Champions League appearance.

That doesn’t mean van Dijk hasn’t been defending though – far from it. Thought the 27-year old exceptional reading of the game and aerial power means that he can often snuff out danger before a tackle is required.

You can back van Dijk to make under 0.5 tackles at a cracking looking 11/8 with bet365.
