Buffon sets new Serie A record

Gigi Buffon set an all-time new Serie A record of 974 minutes unbeaten, but it was ended by Andrea Belotti’s penalty.

The Juventus goalkeeper shattered the existing tally of 929 minutes set by Sebastiano Rossi for Milan in 1993-94.

He held out until the 48th minute of the Derby della Mole, but was eventually beaten by Belotti’s penalty for Torino.

Buffon kept 10 consecutive Serie A clean sheets – also an all-time record – and hadn’t conceded since Antonio Cassano’s goal in a 2-1 victory away to Sampdoria on January 10.
