Bernardo Silva hopes Man City avoid Juventus

Bernardo Silva admits he hopes Manchester City avoid Juventus in the Champions League quarter-finals.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hat-trick on Tuesday night for Juve to topple Atletico Madrid 3-2 on aggregate.

The quarter-final draw takes place on Friday.

Asked about drawing Juve, Silva said: "I wouldn't like it very much, to be honest.

"I know him, I know what he's capable of and once again he proved it (against Atletico Madrid).

"When you are playing in a competition like the Champions League you have to know that you can get drawn against these kind of teams, these kind of players, and it is a good thing. It means you are playing in the best competitions.

"We will see who we are playing against but, of course, to play against Cristiano is always complicated."
