Gigi Buffon tries to reassure his ‘distraught’ Juventus teammates after another Champions League exit. ‘We didn’t go as far as we wanted to, or thought we’d get.’

The Bianconeri had to overturn a 1-0 first leg defeat to Lyon, but when Memphis Depay converted a penalty in Turin for a precious away goal, even Cristiano Ronaldo’s brace was not enough.

Buffon: Serie A record man

Gianluigi Buffon will make history today with his 648th Serie A appearance, surpassing Paolo Maldini, but it’s far from the only all-time record he holds.

The 42-year-old goalkeeper recently signed a contract extension to June 2021, meaning he will be 43 years and five months old by the time it expires.

SuperGigi made his Serie A debut playing for Parma and kept a clean sheet in the 0-0 draw with Milan on November 19, 1995, when he was just 17 years, nine months and 22 days old.

Meret: 'Buffon still my hero'

Napoli goalkeeper Alex Meret celebrated the first trophy of his career, especially winning the Coppa Italia against Juventus. ‘Gigi Buffon proved he’s still Number One.’

Buffon: 'More fired up than ever'

Gigi Buffon maintains he is ‘more fired up than ever’ precisely because he gets fewer opportunities to play for Juventus, as he could make Coppa Italia history.

The 42-year-old goalkeeper has won five editions of this trophy, so a sixth would enable him to equal Roberto Mancini’s record.

Juve face Napoli at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome tomorrow at 20.00 UK time (19.00 GMT).

“I am playing less this season, so naturally when I do step on to the field, I am more fired up than ever,” Buffon told DAZN.

The first Serie A player to be diagnosed with COVID-19 was Daniele Rugani, followed soon after by teammates Blaise Matuidi and Paulo Dybala.
