Allegri ‘wants to avoid’ Barca

Barcelona are the one club Juventus Coach Massimiliano Allegri is keen for his side to avoid in the Champions League quarter finals.

The Old Lady eliminated Barca last season with a 3-0 aggregate score-line, but lost the 2015 decider to the Blaugrana and collected only one point from two group stage matches this season.

“The only team that I don’t want is Barcelona,” Allegri told an interview with Viasport’s Jan Aage Fjortoft.

“Because every year (we draw) Barcelona, Barcelona, Barcelona… now stop!

“Moving clubs this summer? No, because I have a contract until 2020.”

Juve qualified for the last eight after eliminating Tottenham Hotspur while Ernesto Valverde’s side face a second leg with Chelsea, with the tie poised at 1-1 following the first match at Stamford Bridge.
