Liverpool fans fume as BT Sport technical issues hamper coverage of Porto clash

Liverpool fans have been left fuming at BT Sport’s coverage of their Champions League match with Porto.

The channel’s online stream was having problems before kick-off, viewers complained.

Twitter users expressed frustration with the delay in the buffering of coverage, while others blasted BT for crashing the stream.

One supporter complained on Twitter that the broadcaster had not fixed the problem in time for the match.

One supporter unhappy Twitter user complained: “Trying to watch Liverpool / Porto on the @btsport app and the stream is just paused on a still of the net. Anyone else having the same issue?

Someone else moaned: “@btsport has the feed of the Liverpool game crashed? Sort it out please.”

A third Twitter user questioned: “What’s happening on BT sport 3 Liverpool game haha.”

Others pleaded with BT Sport to fix the problems before kick-off: “@btsport Get yourselves sorted. This Liverpool best not go off during the game.”

Despite the issues clearing up for some, others encountered more problems well after kick-off.

Almost ten minutes into the match, another fan wrote: “anyone else BT lagging up for the Liverpool game.”

“Yeah, keeps cutting out,” came the reply from one disgruntled fan.

While a different fan added: “Nice of BT to not work while the Liverpool game is on.”

Thankfully, Liverpool fans didn’t miss anything in the opening 15 minutes as the game remained 0-0.

Reds beat AC Milan 3-2 in their Champions League group match and will now be looking to improve their 100 percent record in Portugal.

Jurgen Klopp selected a nearly full strength team for the trip to Porto but had to rely on Trent Alexander-Arnold, who is also doubtful for Sunday’s crucial clash with Manchester City.

Speaking ahead of the Porto game, Klopp told BT Sport: “It didn’t look serious but we did further assessment and it was serious.

“He is out for today for sure, he didn’t travel, and it doesn’t look great for the City game as well.

“It’s a muscle thing. We thought it was just tight from the [Brentford] game but it was more and now we have to deal with that.”
