Buffon keen to avoid Leicester
Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon is worried about the possibility of the Italian giants being drawn to play Leicester in the Champions League quarter-finals.
Both clubs reached the last eight on Tuesday night, with Buffon's Serie A-leading Bianconeri moving past Porto 3-0 on aggregate while Leicester mounted a second-leg comeback to edge out Sevilla 3-2.
Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich are among the other heavyweights already through to the quarter-finals but veteran Italy keeper Buffon, now 39, wants to swerve last year's surprise Premier League champions.
He said: "I would like to avoid Leicester City. They're a dangerous side, there's a feel-good factor around the place and they have the ability to hurt you if you take the game to them.
"You have everything to lose against them."
