Porto were beaten by a 2-0 margin in the quarter-final first leg of the Champions League. Now, they can finalize their passage to the semifinals by a victory at the Estadio Dragao.
Sérgio Conceição, the FC Porto manager is in awe of Jurgen Klopp’s team. He thinks the Liverpool side he played is the best team in the world. High praise coming from Conceição, but Porto are Porto and this is Liverpool.
In the Porto manager’s view, he would love to play the kind of football that Klopp’s boys exhibit every week.
“Liverpool are all about the way that I think about football,”
“I like the Liverpool dynamics, their game model. I like the way they play with the ball and without it, it’s similar to how I see football.
“In my opinion, in a lot of these moments they are the best team in the world.”
“The match is difficult to prepare for not only because it is 2-0, but also because Liverpool are very strong in attack,” he said.
“The balance we will need when we are attacking will be fundamental so that we do not concede any more goals.”
