‘The experience of the manager going through European ties all the way to the final is something that might add and help everybody.
‘We obviously hope he will take advantage of our draw and they will progress and we’ll at least get into the further stages of the competition.
‘Once you’re in the competition you always want to try and win it.’
When asked about his memories of facing Porto as a player, Cech said: ‘We had played Porto a few times in the Champions League in my first season when I joined the club and later as well. All the games were always tight and difficult.
‘We expect the same, we respect the opponent and as well, they were good in the group with Manchester City and they obviously managed to go and beat Juventus which is another giant in terms of European football so we have to respect that.
‘We have our confidence and we know the strength of our team. Hopefully we can go through.’
