The Juventus goalkeeper says his team would have “everything to lose” if they draw the Premier League holders in the Champions League quarter-finals

 Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has named Leicester City as the only team he wants to avoid in the Champions League quarter-finals after the Premier League champions knocked out Sevilla.

The Leicester City miracle continues!

The Foxes ran out 2-0 winners at the King Power Stadium to clinch a 3-2 aggregate victory in their last-16 tie, and their growing reputation around Europe was confirmed by veteran Italian star Buffon.

While Leicester triumphed, Juventus cruised to a 1-0 win over 10-man Porto in Turin, with Paulo Dybala’s first-half penalty ensuring a 3-0 aggregate scoreline in favour of the Serie A leaders.

Despite the likes of Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid being in the last eight, Buffon picked out Leicester as the competition’s danger team.

He told Premium Sport: “The only team I’d like to avoid in the draw is Leicester.

“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 takes place on Friday, with the ties to be played in mid-April.
