Klopp admits 6-1 aggregate scoreline harsh on Porto

SHOWS: PORTO, PORTUGAL (APRIL 17, 2019) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 1.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) LIVERPOOL MANAGER, JUERGEN KLOPP, SAYING: "I don't think it's a result that reflects the two games.

In the first game we were the clear better side, 2-0 is ok but we dominated the game, we really played a really good football game that made life really difficult for Porto, tonight it was the other way round.

They made our life very difficult." 2.

WHITE FLASH 3.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) LIVERPOOL MANAGER, JUERGEN KLOPP, SAYING: "We're in the semi-final and we play Barcelona ..

You can't imagine I don't think too much about it, but I am really happy about the fact that we play them and there will always be, we will find things where we think they probably could use it or whatever, but on the other hand I don't care.

I don't mind tonight.

Tonight we are in the semi-final and we play on Sunday against Cardiff and that's in my mind and will be in my mind 100 percent when I wake up tomorrow and not how we play against Barcelona, we will have enough time for that." STORY: Liverpool coach Juergen Klopp said on Wednesday (April 17) that the huge aggregate 6-1 scoreline against Porto over the two legs was a little unfair and that their opponents had made their lives very difficult in Portugal.

Klopp's side is in contention for a domestic league and Champions League double and said his focus now will solely be on their next domestic opponent - Cardiff City.

The German tactician said there would be plenty of time to try and prepare for Barcelona and try to figure out a way to stop their star man Lionel Messi ahead of the first leg of the semi-final at the Nou Camp on April 30.
