Buffon reaches 300 clean sheets

Last night’s 4-0 win over Milan in the Coppa Italia final was Gianluigi Buffon’s 300th clean sheet in a Juventus shirt.

The Bianconeri didn’t concede a single goal throughout the tournament, and the 40-year-old was between the posts as they picked up the trophy last night.

It’s the fourth triumph in a row for the Old Lady, but the game also represented a personal milestone for Buffon.

According to Tuttosport, last night’s clean sheet was Buffon’s 300th for Juve, in his 655th appearance.

That means the veteran has kept a clean sheet in just under 46 per cent of his matches for Juventus across all competitions.

Buffon already holds several records, including longest time without conceding a Serie A goal [974 minutes], most consecutive Serie A clean sheets [10] and most clean sheets in a Serie A season [21 in 2011–12 and 2015–16].
