Javier Saviola wants Malaga to win against Porto and "make history" by reaching the Champions League quarter-finals.

Malaga forward Javier Saviola has said that he and his teammates are determined to reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

The Spanish club will head into the second leg of their last-16 tie against Porto 1-0 down from the first leg played in Portugal last month.

"There are high expectations around this match," he told AS. "It is a game that will make history.

"We will try to go on the attack and bring joy to the supporters. It would be hugely important for us to make the quarters.

"We'll leave everything we have on the field. We know we'll face a great team, a physically strong team, but we have proven we can beat any opponent."

The second leg will be held at La Rosalede on Wednesday.
