Lucho Gonzalez has set his sights on helping Porto finish top of Group A in the Champions League.

Porto are assured of a place in the competition's last 16 following a 0-0 draw away to Dynamo Kiev on Tuesday.

And the Argentine midfielder is now targeting a first-place finish.

"Of course, we want to win our group now - that is obvious - but there are still two matches to go," Gonzalez told reporters.

"We managed to achieve our first objective, and we are very happy about that.

"We came (to Kiev) looking for the victory, but we knew that with a draw we would achieve our first objective, which was to make it into the last 16. We managed to do that, and we are happy about it."

The 31-year-old believes his side were unfortunate not to win in the Ukrainian capital.

"It was a difficult match. Dynamo are a very strong team at home, but I think we played a good game, and we would have deserved leave with three points," Gonzalez said.

Vitor Pereira's side host Dinamo Zagreb on November 21 before travelling to the Parc des Princes to face Paris Saint-Germain on December 4.
