Buffon believes attitude is key

Gianluigi Buffon has admitted that everyone at Juventus is ‘aware’ how important tomorrow’s game with Galatasaray is.

The Bianconeri travel to Istanbul knowing that a draw or a win will see them through to the Last 16 of the Champions League.

And the goalkeeper has insisted that his men will remain calm under the pressure of what is sure to be an intense atmosphere in the Turkish capital.

“I’ve never seen a fan score and if it happened tomorrow it should be disallowed, so we’re perfectly calm from that point of view,” he told reporters.

“A lot will depend on our attitude and how we’re able to deal with any difficulties we encounter, a bit like our meeting with Celtic in March.

“When you play games at this level you find yourself up against quality opponents, so the risk of conceding is always there.

“Galatasaray have world class players up front and so we could have some problems. The important thing is also to have a solution.”
