Rio Ferdinand explains why Liverpool could win the Champions League this season

11 Marcha 2018

'If I look back, I can feel proud of the things I've won in the game, of everything I have achieved.

Cristiano Ronaldo was one of the scorers for Madrid, the Portugal forward netting for the ninth straight game in the Champions League. In the end, neither tie produced any surprises.

Adam Lallana was rusty and disappointing, often running round like a clockwork mouse with little purpose or direction. However, their 5-0 win in the first-leg means they have advanced to the quarter finals. It was a classic too, when the Reds surprised everyone by making a real contest of a tie that had looked lost after the first leg. He is ready but opportunities are at a premium given the form of the players ahead of him. Four clubs in the quarterfinals and three in the semifinals. There is a good development in Liverpool, a nice moment.

Tuesday's goalless stalemate with Porto was enough to see Jurgen Klopp's side through to the last eight of the competition due to a 5-0 aggregate scoreline.

"It was not about rotation, it was only about finding the right line-up for tonight", he added.

The joint-top scorer in the Premier League - Mo Salah - and world's most expensive defender Virgil van Dijk were on the bench for Liverpool, but most of its other big names played.

Klopp made five changes at Anfield, and sought to explain a few of his selections.

"Liverpool are a dangerous team", said Gerrard. Porto coach Sergio Conceicao was even more confident about Liverpool's chances.

"But the maximum you can achieve is the next round and we did that in a comfortable way".

Liverpool have the same opportunity to make history again and whoever they draw will know they'll face a difficult match.

Los Blancos remain one of the favourites to win the Champions League this season. Marco Asensio produced a fine bit of skill to find Lucas Vazquez, who hung a cross up to Cristiano Ronaldo at the far post and the Portuguese superstar headed past Areola.
