Buffon believes Leicester is most dangerous team left in UCL
Leicester’s storybook run in the Champions League continued on Tuesday, but can the Foxes pull off the unthinkable this season in Europe’s biggest club competition?
Gianluigi Buffon certainly thinks so.
The Juventus goalkeeper spoke about the Foxes following his side’s UCL victory over Porto on Tuesday, saying that Leicester is the club he wants to avoid the most.
Although powerhouses like Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich could all be potential foes for Juventus or Leicester in the quarterfinals, there is reason for Buffon to be worried about the Foxes.
The element of surprise that the club brings is something that no other team remaining possesses, especially given Leicester’s new-found form under manager Craig Shakespeare.
