Juventus number one Gianluigi Buffon has revealed he hopes his side don't get drawn against Atletico Madrid in the draw for the Champions League semi-finals.
Juventus held Barcelona to a 0-0 draw at the Nou Camp on Wednesday night to win their quarter-final tie 3-0 on aggregate, becoming only the third side to prevent the Spanish club from scoring over two legs in the Champions League.

Buffon admits he was surprised Juve were able to prevent Barcelona from scoring over two games. He told Mediaset Premium (via the Metro):
"The fact we stopped Barcelona scoring over 180 minutes of football means we really are solid."
Buffon now has his eyes on Friday's semi-final draw, and has insisted that he would rather see Juventus drawn against AS Monaco or Real Madrid than Atletico, he said:
Atletico Madrid have now reached the Champions League semi-finals in 3 out of the last 4 seasons.— 8 Fact Football (@8Fact_Footballl) April 18, 2017
