Liverpool dreaming of Champions League glory says Emre Can and who can blame them given the Reds’ history in the competition

Liverpool midfielder Emre Can says he and his team-mates are dreaming of Champions League glory this season.

The Reds progressed to the last eight of the competition with ease, beating Porto 5-0 across two legs.

Joining them in the quarter-finals are Manchester City, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Sevilla and Roma.

Despite what is an incredibly tough pool of opponents left in the competition however, Can insists Liverpool’s performances so far have given them the confidence that they can go on and win it.

“I’m very much looking forward to finding out who we play. It’s very exciting,” Can told Liverpoolfc.com.

Lionel Messi put Barcelona through against Chelsea with his brace at the Camp Nou on Wednesday night.

“There are just strong teams and that’s why I don’t care. I don’t mind who comes. It will be interesting.

“We don’t go anywhere and say ‘okay, now we will see what happens’. Of course we want to win the games.

“We are in the quarter-finals and of course we have to play from game to game, but we dream a little bit of winning the Champions League.”

Liverpool did what they had to do by dispatching Porto 5-0 on aggregate in the first knockout round and you would fancy a bet with a betfred promo code for them to possibly win the entire competition based on the demolition of the Portuguese side.

Rivals Man United fell out of the competition at the first knock-out round.

Sevilla are clearly a tricky side who Liverpool took too lightly letting leads slip in both group games as they let Sevilla come back to tie them 2-2 at home and 3-3 in Sevilla.

Manchester United however looked totally out-classed by the La Liga club in their Champions League defeat this week as they did in the 1st leg Seville and just as United were underwhelming lucky 2-1 winners vs Liverpool last Saturday lunchtime.

You know what they say the cream always rises to the top and we can see Liverpool not only finishing 2nd in the Premier League but also winning the Champions League for what would be a 6th time even if it means beating Man City which is what it will take now that the quarter-final draw has been made!
