Grujic On Former Club Liverpool

The Serbian international believes the club that he left in the summer had the edge over the other three teams in the group before a ball had been kicked.

“My former club were in the lead even before the start, they played great and justified all expectations."

“We cannot threaten Liverpool after a convincing defeat in the first match. We did not deserve such a convincing defeat at our stadium."

"We will try to be better at Anfield and get closer to the knockout phase. We will have a great opportunity to qualify for the eighth finals against Madrid."

Grujic On Porto's Qualifying Hopes

Grujic is hoping that Porto can secure second spot in a group which on paper was probably the toughest from this year's draw.

As well as Liverpool. Porto are competing with Spanish champions Atletico Madrid and a revitalised AC Milan.

"Winning second place in such a strong group would be a great success for us."

"We will try to prepare as best we can, we will have support from the stands and I hope to secure a place among the 16 best teams."
