Buffon Reveals Which Team He Wants To Avoid In The UCL

Gianluigi Buffon Reveals Which Team He Wants To Avoid In The UEFA Champions League

By Keegan Kruger - Mar 15, 2017 02:59 PM @KeeganKruger

Juventus stalwart Gianluigi Buffon has named the one team he would like to avoid in this season's UEFA Champions League.

Kante Wanted To Represent An African Nation

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.

Leicester's journey is over, Ronaldo and co. will knock them out. Barca will get Athletico or Bayern.

I don't buy Buffon's story, every team will love be drawn against Leicester City at this stage for it to progress even further

It would be a great tie, then Barca to play against Bayern and hopefully the first leg would be in Germany
