BUFFON WANTS TO AVOID LEICESTER IN QUARTER-FINALS

Juventus do not want to play Leicester in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, says the Italian team’s keeper and captain Gianluigi Buffon.

The Italy captain, 39, said: “Who do I prefer not to play? Leicester.

“They are a dangerous and passionate team who can cause trouble for opponents who take the initiative. We would have everything to lose.”

Real Madrid, who have won Europe’s premier knockout tournament a record 11 times and five-times winners Barcelona and Bayern Munich are among the sides already through to the last eight.

The quarter-final draw takes place on Friday.
