Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp commented on his UEFA Champions League quarter-final victory over Porto and reached the semi-finals of the tournament.
"We had moments, not so much, but we took advantage of them. We needed Alison and her defenses. In the second half, the Porto attack fell asleep and made it easier to control the game. They knew they could not play the game at all with the same pressure they showed in the first 30 minutes, so they used Firmino and Henderson in the second half. In my opinion, we are the only semi-finalists who have managed to reach this stage last season. "I will play against Barcelona for the first time in official matches and I look forward to them," said the expert.
Recall that Liverpool have won an overwhelming victory over Porto in the second leg of the Champions League final. The meeting ended with a score of 4: 1.
After a home win at Liverpool (2: 0), the English side managed a confident win in Portugal and advanced to the semifinals of the Champions League, where they will meet Barcelona.
