Gianluigi Buffon is expected to make his 902nd club football appearance today, allowing him to equal Paolo Maldini’s record.
The goalkeeper returned to Juventus after a season at Paris Saint-Germain and is likely to start in today’s Serie A encounter with Hellas Verona at 17.00 UK time (16.00 GMT).
This is set to be his 902nd match for clubs in all competition, representing Parma, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain.
It allows Buffon to equal the record set by Milan legend Paolo Maldini, although his games were in a single club jersey.
The Italy international will also be making his 641st Serie A appearance, again closing on Paolo’s record of 647.
