Liverpool midfielder Emre Can has revealed that the Merseyside club fear nobody in the UEFA Champions League after they qualified for the last 16 of the competition, according to a report on Goal.com.
The German was part of the side who thrashed Spartak Moscow 7-0 last night at Anfield and the midfielder is feeling confident heading into the next round.
We are not afraid of any team. If you want to go through to the next round you have to win, it doesn’t matter who. We will see who we play but of course we have confidence.
Bayern Munich, FC Porto, Juventus, Real Madrid, FC Basel and Shakhtar Donetsk are now potential opponents for the Premier League side in the first knockout stage but Can believes the Reds can cause problems to any of those sides.
Jurgen Klopp’s side showed no mercy to their Russian opponents, who simply could not cope with the pace, power and intensity of Liverpool.
The Reds now go into the Merseyside Derby on Sunday full of confidence as Everton make the short trip to Anfield.
Can is hoping to see a similar performance from himself and his team-mates as thy look to continue their fine run of form.
