Porto defender Danilo Pereira spoke before the game with Chelsea and claimed that the Portuguese side players are confident on getting a win tonight: a win for them would mean probably the Blues out of the Champions League, since they would have to rely on Maccabi Tel Aviv beating Dynamo Kiev to get a pass for Last 16 stage. Porto, however, is in the same situation, even though Chelsea can still qualify with a draw in case Dynamo will draw with Maccabi:
“The players believe we can get a win here,” said Pereira.
“We have confidence. It’s difficult because Porto have never won in England, but hopefully we will achieve it.
“This will be a very different match to that at the Dragao. It’s a decisive game for them and us.
“We’ll not change our game. We have our own football philosophy. But we also know how to defend and we are well prepared for what awaits us.”
