Jurgen Klopp reacts to Liverpool's Champions League draw against Porto

16 Mar 2019, 14:00

Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool’s 5-0 away win against Porto in the Champions League last season will not be a factor in next month’s tie.

The Reds were paired with the Portuguese giants in the quarter-finals draw of the competition in Nyon, Switzerland on Friday.

"It's Porto and we've played there already and we know how good we had to be last year," Klopp was quoted as saying by the Independent.

"The result in the end was a strange one; it was very good for us, of course, but it was a strange one. In the second leg, we saw the character of Porto and the quality they have.

"I could not be further away from thinking it's the best draw because it isn't – it is just the draw, it's the opponent we have to prepare for and that's all we will be thinking about from when we start preparing for the game.

"We have a specialist for Porto in our own team in Pep Lijnders being there in the past – and he always speaks with so much respect for that club. We will have plenty of information and that’s what you need before a game, but you still have to play it. Now we know it, let's prepare.”
