& # 39; We do not want to waste this opportunity & # 39 ;: Hector Herrera checks history while Porto plans to upset Liverpool in the Champions League quarterfinals
- Liverpool holds 2-0 ahead of Porto in the final match of the Champions League quarterfinals
- Hector Herrera comes back from the suspension and insists that his side can oversteer
- Boss Sergio Conceicao is also convinced that his party is a great achievement
Porto is able to destroy their 2-0 deficit compared to Liverpool in the Champions League quarterfinals last, according to the returning Hector Herrera.
The Mexican missed the first leg in Anfield by suspension, with Naby Keita and Roberto Firmino giving the hosts a comfortable lead.
Herrera also believes that his party does not want revenge after a 5-0 defeat at home with the Premier League club in the last 16 Champions League last season.
Hector Herrera insists that Porto can make a comeback against Liverpool
& # 39; There is no desire for revenge. Last year's result is in the past, & said Herrera. & # 39; We have a great opportunity to keep writing history and we don't want to waste this opportunity.
Ze They have the advantage, but I believe in the ability that we have as players and as a team.
& # 39; I am confident and believe that we can achieve good results and keep our Champions League dream alive. & # 39;
Helping Porto on Wednesday will be the return of the suspension of central defender Pepe, who also has the experience of winning three Champions League titles with Real Madrid together with current teammate Iker Casillas.
With the Spanish World Cup winner in goal, Porto won their first Portuguese title in five years in 2018,
Casillas did not play in the last 5-0 rounds, with Jose Sa preferred in the goal, and the demoralizing home defeat started with a goalkeeper error.
Iker Casillas will be vital for the chances of Porto to save a result of the second stage
Porto plays for the first time since 2014-15 in the quarterfinals of the Champions League.
The club has not reached the semi-final since winning the tournament under Jose Mourinho in 2004.
Porto coach Sergio Conceicao also reinforced the need for his party to show an improvement in all aspects of their game.
& # 39; We have a shortage of two goals to make up for a very strong team that is quickly in the break & # 39 ;, said Conceicao on Tuesday.
& # 39; Getting the offensive balance right is fundamental. We have to work for defensive organization and we are 100 percent focused and aware of what our opponents are doing. & # 39;
Boss Sergio Conceicao has called on his team to improve in both attack and defense
