Brazil and Juventus right back Dani Alves would like to avoid playing former club Barcelona in the Champions League unless they meet in the final.
The 33-year-old left the LaLiga champions a year ago to join Juve, having comfortably enjoyed a trophy-loaded eight seasons with the Catalan giant.
A first-half penalty from Paulo Dybala was enough for Juve to overcome a 10-man Porto in their second leg on Tuesday, on a 3-0 aggregate accomplishment as they achieved the Champions League quarter-finals berth.
Be that as it may, Dani Alves has no enthusiasm for a conflict against Barcelona, a team which finished a staggering turnover to smash Paris Saint-Germain out of the champions league with a stunning 6-1 win.
“I don’t want to play Barcelona. It would be too strange for me,” Alves told beIN Sports.
“If I have to play Barca, I’d prefer it to be in the final.”
Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Barcelona, and UCL debutant Leicester Cit Progressing to the quarter-final stage of the competition after thrashing Sevilla 2-0 at the Kings Power Stadium on Tuesday night.
With Athletico, Manchester City, Bayern Leverkusen and Monaco potentially joining them.
