Lovren - Reds can win Champions League

Wednesday's last-16 first leg tie in Porto was the Reds' first in the knockout stage of Europe's elite club competition since 2009 and they tore the Portuguese giants apart, winning 5-0 thanks to a hat-trick from Sadio Mane and more goals from Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah.

They are now virtually guaranteed a quarter-final place and Lovren says if they maintain the standards they set at the Estadio do Dragao for the rest of the competition they have a real chance.

'When you are 2-0, 3-0 up you think it is over but it is not and you still have a lot to play,' the Croatian defender said.

'We showed quality and character and from everyone it was brilliant.

'We have so much quality that we can beat everyone if we are on our top-level – simple as that.'
