Atletico Madrid has cruised through group play and they hold a seven point lead in the group. They’ve already locked down first place in the group but second is up for grabs. FC Porto needs to win and hope Zenit St Petersburg doesn’t get a win to advance.
“Atletico Madrid have made a thunderous start to the season. They have only lost one game and drawn one and this attests to their value as a team,” Porto coach Paulo Fonseca said, via ESPN FC.
“But we have no other outcome than victory. We have no choice to move to the next stage. We are here with the ambition to beat Atletico Madrid.”
“We did not win any games at home and abroad we have made a positive campaign. First, we have to worry about us, and only then think about the other game. If we do not win our game, the other does not matter.”
