Dani Alves Keen To Avoid ‘strange’ Barcelona Tie



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.
