Porto chief Baia warns Chelsea: We're always favourites

Porto vice-president Vitor Baia has welcomed their Champions League quarterfinal draw with Chelsea.

After eliminating Juventus, the Portuguese champion team will face Chelsea in April.

Baia said, "When you are in the quarter-finals the opponent is always of great quality but there is confidence.

"We will play against a great team, which is recovering with a new manager, but it will be right to focus on ourselves, everything is open.

"For me Porto are always favourites, regardless of the opponent. We will face Chelsea with optimism and a willingness to qualify."
