Joao Felix admits FC Porto is Barcelona‘s toughest opponent in the Champions League. But it is ready to invade and defeat competitors as well.

Joao Felix, the Portuguese attacker, gave his first press conference as a Barcelona player ahead of the game against FC Porto on the Champions League stage this Wednesday, admitting that facing a famous team Portugal will be the hardest game for the Azulgrana team. Especially after the opponent just lost to Benfica in the latest game, according to a report from Mundo Deportivo on Tuesday UFABET

‘Barcelona are a great team. Everyone knows how to play. I think I adjusted well. I’m working on this,’ Felix said. ‘We saw how Barcelona played compared to Atletico. This doesn’t mean Atleti are bad, but I adapted to the way Barcelona played. Barça has gotten better’

When asked by Sergio Conceicao, FC Porto coach, if he could form a back line of 5 to face Barcelona on Wednesday, Joao Felix commented on the matter. ‘Playing with a five-man defense is complicated. They fell back and it was difficult to create scoring opportunities.’

As an alumnus of Benfica’s academy, FC Porto’s arch-rivals, is the 23-year-old forward looking to break through to his arch rivals? 

‘My dream is to score in every match, no matter where I am. It might be special because we are playing a Portuguese team. It’s another game we’ll try to win.’

‘I think the worst thing is for them to lose to Benfica because they will have the desire to win and give their best and at Dragao the competition will always be complicated. But we’re ready for that.’ 

‘Porto is the most difficult game for us in the Champions League. But we are taking it step by step,’ Felix said.
