Gianluigi Buffon praised Fiorentina and said Juventus “suffered” for their point at the Stadio Artemio Franchi.
The Bianconeri didn’t really have a shot on goal during tonight’s 0-0 draw, whereas the Viola rattled the crossbar with Stevan Jovetic.
“We were tired tonight, just as our opponents may well have been considering they also played on Saturday. They did well,” the goalkeeper told Sky Sport Italia.
“You can tell Fiorentina have a great Coach and a tactical system they believe in. It can happen to draw a game like this, there’s no shame in that.
“We suffered, but they only had three or four dangerous scoring opportunities. The fact we kept a clean sheet means this is a point well earned.”
Coach Antonio Conte was in the Plexiglas booth along with Juventus Channel commentators, as there were fears he’d be too exposed to supporters in the stands.
“The public in Florence responded well to the situation, as did ours. There were no incidents and the rivalry was maintained on an acceptable level,” concluded Buffon.
