FC Porto Vice President, Vitor Baia, has backed his club as favourites to qualify for the Champions League semi-finals when they tackle Chelsea in the quarter-final first and second legs in April.
Baia stressed he is confident Porto can eliminate Thomas Tuchel’s side out of the Champions League.
Porto eliminated Juventus from the Champions League last-16, while Chelsea knocked Atletico Madrid out.
“When you are in the quarter-finals of a competition of this level, any opponent is of great quality”, Vitor told Porto’s official website.
“We’ve to prepare because we still have a lot to give in this Champions League campaign.
“There’s confidence, but we know that we’re playing against a great team, who have been on the way back to their best since Thomas Tuchel took over as the coach.
“Anyway, we focus on ourselves and what we’ve to do. Everything is open, and for me, FC Porto are always favourites against anyone. There is optimism and determination to move on to the semi-finals.”
