There could be 5 but the uefa winner would have to finish outside the top four.

Jürgen Klopp's reaction to FC Porto pairing in Champions League

Jürgen Klopp insists last season’s victory over FC Porto will have little bearing on Liverpool’s performance in the Champions League quarter-final meeting between the teams this time around.

The Reds were paired with the Portuguese side in Friday morning’s last-eight draw, with the first leg due to be played at Anfield on Tuesday April 9 and the return one week later at the Estadio do Dragao (Wednesday April 17).

Klopp’s team prevailed 5-0 on aggregate against Porto at the last-16 stage last year, with all five goals being scored in the initial leg in Portugal before a goalless meeting on Merseyside.

Nevertheless, the manager has outlined why that result will have no impact on what unfolds this time around – and stressed no-one within the Liverpool dressing room will be underestimating their opponents.

Speaking to Liverpoolfc.com at Melwood moments after the draw was made, Klopp said: “What can I say? It’s Porto and we’ve played there already and we know how good we had to be last year.

“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.”

While Klopp feels the result of last season’s tie won’t have influence on determining who progresses into the last four next month, he does believe it could give Porto a point to prove.

The winners of the tie will meet either Manchester United or FC Barcelona in the semi-finals.

Klopp continued: “100 per cent [it could give them extra motivation]. Porto were not on my ‘wish list’, but now they are our opponent, it is how it is and we have to play them.

“The first thing you have to do is make sure everybody respects the opponent the right way – and we will do that 100 per cent. We will know about the quality of Porto and then we have to play the game. Our supporters are brilliant at that, respecting the opponent.

“I am happy for them because it is a nice trip, a nice city, and the weather will be good then, which is always good for English people! There’s nothing else to say.”

It's probably the best possible draw for us. Danger will be underestimating Porto but I can't see a Klopp team ever underestimating the opposition.

We'd have to be considered favourites in the semi-final regardless of whether it's United or Barca.

Oh, how far we've come.

Doubt that if it was Barca. Still, over 2 legs...

I still consider Barca to be an incredibly dangerous team, far more than Bayern. That said, I really fancy us against their defence!

I'd prefer to get Barca. I could see United just fuckin kicking us....more likely to impact our league game in between.....

Also, it'd be fuckin beautiful to see Coutinhos cranky fuckin face if we put them out

Plus it'd be nice to see the Klopp-Suarez love-in at the end too......it'd probably start the rumour of Luis return

Adrian Durham is lucky. Surprised that (a) he has managed to get a woman to have sex with him (b) he has got a job

Never listened to Talksport before that snippet and never again. I have no idea who's these guys are but he is blatantly saying these things to cause a reaction amongst a huge fanbase.

He's just fishing and he will no doubts get a bites.

Guy's a penis. He says Arsenal got a tougher draw in Napoli but fails to notice the group we were in also contained Napoli, along with PSG who spent €1,000,000,000 to compile their squad

Yeah, the reason Arsenal are playing Napoli at all is because we already beat them?

I haven't listened to radio football discussions for nearly two years. Can't say I've missed them. Radio stations went down the Donald Trump road a long time ago and it may backfire spectacularly. TV better stay on its guard.

It's probably just rage bait really. They want people to be pissed off and call in. Best not to engage.

it's what Talksport does. Really don't understand why people listen to it. It's News Corp, akin to reading the S*n.
