City's football administration officer Brian Marwood said: "It's amazing, we've gone from the hardest group in the Champions League to getting the holders of the Europa League.

"It's a big game and we'll be looking forward to it.

"One thing we haven't had to endure is going through the early rounds where you play a lot of games. Porto are attractive opposition and the current champions.
