Cape Town - Juventus defender Dani Alves has admitted he would not want to face his former club Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals.

The Bianconeri beat Porto 3-0 on aggregate in their last-16 tie with a 1-0 win in the second leg on Tuesday, which could see them drawn against Barcelona in the quarter-finals on Friday.

Alves, who left the Catalans at the end of last season, is not keen on facing his former employers, at least not until the Champions League final.

He told beIN Sports: "I don't want to play Barcelona. It would be too strange for me.

"If I have to play Barca, I'd prefer it to be in the final."

Meanwhile Juventus forward Paulo Dybala wants to play Barcelona in this season's Champions League final, if the Italian side get that far.

Dybala told Premium Sports: "Do I want to meet Barcelona, Real Madrid or Bayern Munich? I would leave Barca for the final.
