Liverpool will know their opponent in the next round today, but the Argentine star does not want to face his former team.


star Diogo Jota has expressed hope that his side will not face Porto in the next round of the Champions League, and he hopes to face his former team in the final.

The draw for the quarter-finals of the Champions League will take place today and the teams will know their rivals. Porto beat Juventus and Cristiano Ronaldo in the round of 16 to reach the top eight, and now Jota, who has been on loan at Porto for a season, has expressed hope that they will face them in the final.

Asked about whether he likes to face Porto in this stage, he told


: “Honestly no. I think not.

“Because although Liverpool had a recent victory - I think they had Porto [previously in the Champions League knockout stages] and they managed to get past them - I think it would be a very complicated and very emotional game for me and I’d rather have another team.

“But in the final, yes. I’d agree to that.”
