Buffon: 'Juve forced to win'

Gigi Buffon confirms the second consecutive Scudetto felt different, but that Juventus didn’t mind being “forced to win.”

The Bianconeri dominated Serie A for the last two seasons and on Sunday will be presented with the Scudetto trophy after their game with Cagliari.

“This Scudetto did not have the same strong feeling as last year’s, as that was the surprise title considering we started out at a disadvantage,” Buffon told students in Turin.

“This year it had a different feeling. The fact we were the team to beat meant we were forced to win from July to now, although of course it was a sweet sensation too.

“Managing to win while knowing everyone is sitting there just waiting for you to make a mistake and the pressure of the people on your shoulders is not easy.

“However, seeing as it is so difficult, it gives you a great feeling when you achieve those results.”
