Castro: Porto confident

Porto Coach Luis Castro says his side are optimistic they can qualify for the Europa League quarter finals.

The Dragoes take a 1-0 lead to Napoli for the second leg of their Last 16 tie, to be played tomorrow at San Paolo.

“There was a lot of pessimism when we played away in Germany after a 2-2 draw at home,” Castro said at a pre-match Press conference.

“Now we come into a second leg on the back of a positive result, although it wasn’t the right result as we could have scored more goals but only won 1-0.

“We are optimistic, although we have a few injuries I am sure we will go out onto the pitch and give our maximum to get to the next round.

“That is our objective.”
