Juventus ace Cristiano Ronaldo keen to avoid Real Madrid 'until final'

Juventus ace Cristiano Ronaldo says he'd like to avoid former club Real Madrid in the Champions League round of 16.

Ronaldo struck in last night's 2-0 win at Bayer Leverkusen.

And asked about the round of 16 draw, he said at the final whistle: "Real Madrid is an extraordinary team.

"Personally I would prefer to meet them later, not in the second round.

"I would sign now to meet them in the final."
