UEFA Champions League: Super Eagles Striker Dares FC Porto
While the record books strongly favours FC Porto ahead of Wednesday night’s UEFA Champions League clash, Super Eagles striker, Henry Onyekuru is positive that his team can cause an upset.
Onyekuru even says Galatasaray can beat FC Porto in Wednesday’s Champions League Group D clash.
The Turkish club pipped Erzurum BB 1-0 in a league match last weekend, but Onyekuru says playing in Europe’s premier competition is a different kettle of fish.
“We have no time and must focus on Porto. It is a very important game for us, but we can win it and also reach the next stage,” Onyekuru told TheCable.
“It will be a great game and we must go out to enjoy it because the Champions League is different to anything else, we need to get the three points.”
Onyekuru says he is looking forward to playing at the Estadio do Dragao.
“There’s no doubt it has been a dream of mine to play there. It’s one of those places where a footballer always wants to play and do well,” he said.
“The Estadio do Dragao has lots of history and is up there with the Santiago Bernabeu, Old Trafford, San Siro and the Camp Nou, but hopefully we can win.
“We’ve already proved at Galatasaray that we can beat them and we’ll be giving it everything, there’s no doubt about that.”
Winning on matchday one, group leaders Galatasaray travel to face second-place FC Porto.
A competitive game on paper, this matchup will be played in an intense atmosphere, with both sides hoping to top the group heading into matchday three.
After a convincing 3-0 win over Lokomotiv Moscow, Galatasaray head into Wednesday’s game full of confidence, knowing they’re capable of coming away with all three points.
Porto, on the other hand, enter as favourites, with home-field advantage expected to play a big role.
