Reds legend John Aldridge: We CAN win the Champions League
John reflects on Reds chances in the Champions League.
“The Porto game, away from home we were magnificent. The job was done at home, it made no difference really and it was just about making sure we got through.
“But once the quarters come around then it gets tasty and you’ll see Anfield in a different light in the quarter-final game, whoever it’s against. It’ll be massive.
“I’ve seen teams shake in their boots when they’ve heard the atmosphere before the game and it intimidates them and gives us a little bit of an edge.
“I think it’s always nice to be at home in the second leg to have the insurance policy so if something happens away you can retract it at Anfield, but if you’re playing at home [in the first leg] and hypothetically you draw 0-0 then teams will be so wary of us with our away form with away goals counting double. You’d prefer to be at home for the second leg, but the way we play, you never know.
“Can we get to the semis? Of course we can, whoever we play. Can we get to the final? Of course we can. Can we win it? Of course we can. We’re in the shake up, but things have got to go your way a little bit. [You need] a little bit of luck. But certainly we can still dream.”
