Gianluigi Buffon Reveals Which Team He Wants To Avoid In The UEFA Champions League
Juventus stalwart Gianluigi Buffon has named the one team he would like to avoid in this season's UEFA Champions League.
The Italy international saw his side progress to the quarter-finals of the prestigious competition on Tuesday night, but admitted soon after the Bianconeri's 1-0 win over FC Porto that he would like to stay clear of reigning Premier League champions Leicester City in the rest of the tournament.
The Foxes beat La Liga outfit Sevilla 2-0 at the King Power Stadium on the same night, which means they also advanced to the next round.
"The only team I'd like to avoid in the draw is Leicester," Buffon told Premium Sport
"They have got enthusiasm, they know how to hurt the strongest teams. We'd have everything to lose against them."
The draw for the quarter-finals of Europe's premier club competition will take place on Friday, with that round of fixtures set to be played in mid-April.
