Thiago Silva: Porto are favourites against PSG
PSG's Thiago Silva believes that Portguese giants Porto will be favourites for tonight's Champions League clash at the Estadio do Dragao.
Silva, 28, told reporters ahead of the game: "Porto are the favourites. They play at home with a lot of supporters.
"I think it will be a very important game. We are in good shape. Porto attack a lot, but we're not going there to defend.
"I am almost at 100 per cent. I had a hard time with my injury after the Olympics, but gradually I have come back and I'm almost at my maximum level now."
The defender was also quick to dismiss reports that he preferred playing with fellow Brazilian Alex:
"I did not say I liked playing with Alex more, I just said that Alex has more experience. I want to apologize to Sakho because I didn't say that."
Thiago Silva is expected to start tonight's Champions League match betweeen Porto and PSG which kicks off at 7:45pm.
