Resino hopes for better after Porto escape

Atletico Madrid coach Abel Resino has promised a better performance from his side in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie with Porto, although he did not believe they were outclassed in the 2-2 first leg draw.

Despite Resino`s comments, Porto will feel they should have established a healthy advantage from their trip to the Vicente Calderon, creating a host of chances and only being denied a convincing victory by the heroics of Atletico goalkeeper Leo Franco.

The irate reactions by the home fans to some of their side`s play also suggested the Rojiblancos were well below par, but Resino stood by his players and believes they gave a good account of themselves against an impressive Porto outfit.

"We had the plan and ambition to win this game, but we had a great team against us," he said.

"Porto are a physically very strong team, who have a lot of speed up front, but it was an even match and we did showed up well. For me the draw is fair.

"We didn`t lack courage, what we lacked was gas. We are trying to improve and little by little the team will notice a change, but when you come up against a great team it seems you are doing less than you really are.

"The tie is still open, we`ve drawn and Atletico can do well in the game in Porto.

"The team will be better in the next match than in this. I insist that Atletico can win at any ground and also in Porto."

Porto coach Jesualdo Ferreira was far from pleased with the result, believing his side did enough to win the game despite twice trailing.

"We didn`t score all the goals we could have because we had many chances but did not take advantage of them, which is why I don`t consider the result to be positive," he said.

"It`s normal that the Atletico Madrid coach says that the tie is open and that they have a chance to get through.

"The next game will be different, because there's not going to be another match that's the same, but we're also prepared for the game in Porto and I think we`re going to win."
