Benfica midfielder Taarabt: We can match Liverpool's attack

Benfica midfielder Adel Taarabt insists Liverpool hold no fear for them.

Benfica and Liverpool meet tonight in the first-leg of the Champions League quarterfinal.

Former Tottenham and QPR midfielder Taarabt said, "I believe we can match Liverpool's offensive dynamics. We respect them, but we are not afraid of them and tomorrow [Tuesday] we want to be at our best and play a game of excellence.

"We will be in front of our fans and we have to believe that we are going to play a great game and win. We also have great quality players, individual values that can make a difference, we have our strengths and we will do everything to win in front of our fans.

"It will be a special game, because I played seven years in England, but I have nothing to prove except to myself and my team."
