Gianluigi Buffon reveals the team Juventus don't want in CL semi-final
Gianluigi Buffon has revealed Juventus are hoping to avoid Atletico Madrid in Friday's Champions League semi-final draw.
But the Italian goalkeeper believes the reigning champions would be an easier opponent than Atletico, as Diego Simeone's men are the only team not distracted by a domestic title fight.
Despite a long and stellar career at Juventus, Buffon is still yet to lift the coveted trophy but says his Juventus side can take a lot of confidence after shutting out Barcelona over two legs.
Their clean sheet at the Nou Camp, which came as a surprise to Buffon, means the Italian side are yet to concede from open play in this season's Champions League and makes them the team to avoid for Atletico, Real and Monaco.
‘Aside from the result, the belief and character of our approach was excellent and it’s a good confidence booster to qualify comfortably against what remains probably the best team in the world,’ said the Italian.
