Perhaps unsurprisingly, Juventus have never faced Leicester in a competitive game, but the Turin side have drawn English sides Fulham, Manchester City and Chelsea - twice - in the last decade.
Both clubs reached the last eight on Tuesday night, with Buffon's Serie A-leading Bianconeri moving past Porto 3-0 on aggregate while Leicester mounted a second-leg comeback to edge out Sevilla 3-2.
"Against them, we would have everything to lose".
"Incredible", says Wes Morgan.
Leicester's decision led to widespread outcry from the outside, with many suggesting that the players downed tools in the Italian's latter days and plotted to get him dismissed behind his back.
Who will be in the draw for the Champions League quarter-final? Clearly something has changed in the chemistry of the team and their style is a return to last term's template: from the first minute Leicester tore into their visitors, playing with all the aggression of the teeth-baring cartoon dog displayed together with Shakespeare on a giant banner in the Kop Stand before kick-off. They were not alone; in two telling vignettes, Samir Nasri and Vitolo each picked up yellow cards when their frustration boiled over after being hounded by other Leicester men. We're big players again.' They'll fall off their perch again, guaranteed. "We've been away for warm weather training and that has definitely helped us - we felt fresh", Morgan noted.
Five things we learned from Arsenal 5-0 Lincoln City
For young Lincoln City manager Danny Cowley, the lessons learned at Arsenal will be invaluable. The first goal was important but it was down to how we approached the game.
The Foxes fell 2-1 in the first leg in Spain, and that ended up being the last game for Claudio Ranieri as Leicester chose to fire the Italian manager after that defeat.
As of last season the Europa League winners will qualify for a Champions League group place next season which many believe is the best chance Jose Mourinho has of making the competition. "It is doubtful to be honest, but what we do know is a rookie called Shakespeare is writing a brand new love story to make the tragic tale of Ranieri's demise feel like a thing of the past".
But just as in the first leg, Kasper Schmeichel came up big for the club with a penalty save.
Sevilla pressed hard in the dying minutes but still remained goal-less in the second-leg.
"We have played more like we did last season and we're reaping rewards", he said when asked about Leicester's improved results.
