Porto coach Vitor Pereira has heaped praise on Malaga ahead of the clash between his side and Manuel Pellegrini's men in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

Pereira said that although Malaga have players with individual brilliance, he admires Pellegrini's team as a whole.

He admitted, however, that Porto will set out to attack and control possession as they would against any other opponent.

"Although they players who stand out and have the capacity to change a game, I admire Malaga as a whole," AS quotes Pereira as saying.

"We are used to dominating the opponent, to score goals. We want press, control possession, and not sit back and defend."

Malaga are currently fourth in La Liga.
