Legendary Juventus and Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon would rather face Real Madrid than Leicester in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Juventus claimed their own last-eight spot with victory over Porto and Buffon immediately named Leicester as the team they do not want to face next.

Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern Munich are the three favourites for the trophy, with Juventus the fourth-favourites and Leicester the rank outsiders.

But Buffon 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.”
