Both players have been in impressive form for Porto so far this season as they have impressed in both the Portuguese Primeira Liga and the Champions League, following nicely on from their exploits with Colombia at the World Cup where both featured to an extent as Jose Pekerman’s side made the quarter finals before being knocked out by Brazil.

Martinez is the most well known of the duo and is one of the most sought after strikers in Europe after his displays at the Estadio Dragao during recent seasons, with Liverpool also having been mentioned as a potential destination for a player who is running out of time to test himself in one of the major European leagues.

Quintero, meanwhile, is younger and plays in a deeper, more creative role, laying on a number of the goals that Martinez has plundered during his time in Portugal.
