Buffon: 'Juventus need to be solid'

Gianluigi Buffon concedes Juventus are in ‘a delicate’ moment of their season, so ‘the most important thing is to be solid’ against Spezia.

“The objective is certainly to win, that always has to be the aim for Juve in any game,” the goalkeeper told JTV and Sky Sport Italia.

“We know that this is a delicate time for many reasons, but we must find that strength, courage, anger and determination that will allow us to get the three points, and also try to play good football. The most important aspect is to be a solid team with a solid performance.

“Spezia are well-organised, they put pressure on you in every area of the pitch, making a high tempo and structure their greatest strengths. We have to treat them with kid gloves.”

Juve were held to two consecutive Serie A stalemates by Crotone and Hellas Verona, then lost 2-0 at home to Barcelona in the Champions League.

“Andrea Pirlo’s vision of football is getting into our heads now. He is very calm dealing with delicate moments and is giving us the ingredients to create something important.”
