Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon is keen to secure Champions League qualification for Juventus as soon as possible, so that he can shake off a back injury in time for Euro 2008.

Buffon played against Spain in a midweek friendly, but would prefer time off towards the end of the season to recover full fitness for Italy´s European challenge, which begins on June 9 against Holland in Bern.

"I want to win a Champions League place but I am not at my best," Buffon said to Gazzetta dello Sport. "To return to the top I need at least 20 days´ rest."
