Liverpool travel to the Estadio do Dragao on Wednesday night to face Porto in the first leg of their last of 16 Champions League tie.

While Marcano acknowledges the treat Liverpool’s attack has, but the Spaniard is equally confident that Porto have the talent to deal with such a threat.

“​It’s not about individuals​, they are a​​ complete team​ and they​ haven’t lost in the ​Champions League​​​. ​We know Liverpool are a very ​strong side.” said Marcano, according to the Liverpool Echo.

“They want to move forward but so do we. Now we will face ​each other and we’ll soon see which is better​.​ I think it’s going to be a balanced round.

“Liverpool have a great attack but we have already shown that we also have a great team. We are not fragile.

“Our motivation is to go as far as possible in the Champions League.”
