Chiellini reaches Juventus 500

Giorgio Chiellini will tonight make his 500th competitive appearance in a Juventus jersey when they host Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.

The Round of 16 tie kicks off at 20.00 GMT and the Bianconeri must overcome a 2-0 first leg deficit.

It is also a special occasion for the 34-year-old defender, who this evening reaches his 500th match in the Juve shirt.

He made his debut as a late substitute in a 1-0 Serie A win against Messina on October 15, 2005, playing as a left-back.

Chiellini so far has 499 games under his belt in all competition, in which he scored an impressive 35 goals and provided 23 assists.

He was yellow carded 88 times and sent off on five occasions, twice with straight reds.

Chiello now has two round numbers on his career chart, as he also achieved 100 senior Italy caps.
