Guerreiro delighted with first start

After bagging a goal and an assist on his first Borussia Dortmund start, left-back Raphael Guerreiro was pleased with his side's 6-0 drubbing of Legia Warszawa in the Champions League last week.

Reflecting on the encounter, the Portugal international admitted they had made the best possible start to their Champions League campaign and was especially delighted with his own personal performance.

"I am really happy, about both the team display and my own personal performance," he revealed to UEFA.com.

"We did a great job in Warsaw.

"I am very satisfied. Of course, we came to take three points but before the game, you can't be sure how it is going to turn out. Scoring six goals and not conceding is fantastic news.

"I must admit before the first whistle I thought there would be more resistance from Legia, but we soon realised which team was better and took full advantage.

"We wanted to start this Champions League campaign in the best possible way and we did. It was something special for me: my first start for BVB – what's more, my first in the Champions League – and it resulted in a goal and an assist. I couldn't have asked for more. It was a really special night for me."

The 22-year-old also went on to add that BVB would be looking build on that dominating display but admitted the likes of Real Madrid and Sporting Lisbon, who are also in Group F, would prove to be tough opposition

"There are difficult games ahead, like the next one against Real Madrid, but also Sporting are a great team. But we took a big step and we can build on this," he added.
