Merseyside outfit Li8verpool boss Jurgen Klopp has told his players that they must not be too confident ahead of their game against Porto later on Wednesday evening.

According to him, they are in Portugal to win the game and proceed to the next round but until that is done, his team must maintain focus because Porto is a good side as well.

The Reds team secured 2-0 win the first leg of the quarter-finals at the Anfield and also defeated Porto by 5-0 in last season’s competition but that cannot be taken too seriously according to the German boss.

He noted that Porto have got a perfect home record in the Champions League and that could be a factor his team must battle later on Sunday, adding that his team have got same ability at Anfield but what is now needed to secure a win and move to the next round.

Jurgen Klopp was not too satisfied with the result of the first game but he is happy he was able to record a clean sheet.

However, the Merseyside outfit will now meet Spanish La Liga outfit Barcelona in the next round of the competition if they are able to go past Porto later on Wednesday.
