When you watch the game you always think "oh come on, a little bit more here and there" but they did well and it is all good. "Considering all the affection the fans have shown me since I arrived in Portugal two and a half years ago, I would love to help the team win the domestic league".

Since this tie is as well as dead for the Portuguese giants, head coach Sérgio Conceição could rest some of his key players for this game.

"That front three, when they're on fire, the way they play, the intensity, going to Anfield, the pace they've got in that team - they're going to be a hard proportion for any team in this tournament".

Ronaldo scored for the ninth Champions League game in a row, matching Ruud van Nistelrooy's record in the competition, before PSG striker Edinson Cavani equalised with 19 minutes left, only for Casemiro to give Real victory at the Parc des Princes.

The Egyptian had one chance on goal on the night but could not beat Casillas from a tight angle before Porto nearly nicked a win on the night when the ball dropped to Oliver Torres inside the area, only for Lovren to make a crucial block to deny the midfielder from close range.

This Saturday, the Reds will take on arch rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Sergio Conceicao's men put the home defence under pressure in the ninth minute, though, when a long ball over the top released Vincent Aboubakar, who wasn't able to control and the chance was gone.

Liverpool entered into the quarter finals of UEFA Champions League.

Casillas ended his Champions League career with a well-earned clean sheet. The difference now is that we have that extra something that used to be missing sometimes. "It wasn't our best game but we didn't concede again, so that's a good point for everyone". Just think back to the famous 4-3 win over Manchester City in January, where they took a 4-1 lead but spent the final few minutes of the game holding on for dear life. That maturity is coming through. Now we are in the next round, so I don't need any more positives.
