"It is a motivation to play against a great team like Porto," he told UEFA.com. "It will be a difficult game for both sides.
"We want to continue writing history with Malaga, so we are going for it completely. Porto are in the Champions League nearly every year and regularly reach at least the last 16.
"They're an experienced team, but we have to be confident, work hard and believe we can win."
This is the first time that Malaga are playing in the Champions League.
