Emre Can says Liverpool “are not afraid of any team” as they face the prospect of Champions League clashes with Bayern Munich or Real Madrid.
The Reds swept into the last-16 of Europe’s premier club competition on Wednesday with a 7-0 demolition of Spartak Moscow.
Bayern, Real, Porto, Juventus, Basel and Shakhtar Donetsk are now potential opponents in the first knockout stage, and Can insists that the Premier League are ready to take on all comers.
The Germany international told reporters after the Spartak mauling: “We are not afraid of any team.
“If you want to go through to the next round you have to win, it doesn’t matter who.
“We will see who we play but of course we have confidence.”
