Buffon to face Liverpool

Gianluigi Buffon is expected to start for Paris Saint-Germain against both Toulouse and Liverpool, according to L’Equipe.

The veteran Italian has so far been rotating in the role of goalkeeper with teammate Alphonse Areola.

Now that Buffon’s Champions League ban has expired and he played in the 1-1 draw with Napoli, he has surpassed Areola in the pecking order.

It’s reported Buffon will take the gloves both against Toulouse on Saturday in Ligue 1 and in the crucial Champions League showdown with Liverpool next Wednesday.

The rise, fall and rise again of Parma

No other club can sum up the heady days of 1990s Serie A, the burst of the financial bubble and dream revival like Parma, writes Anthony Barbagallo.

In Italy, it is normal to witness football clubs reach the pinnacle of success and then suddenly fall due to some form of bankruptcy.

Over the years, this has been the story for many small or mid-table Italian clubs. But if there is one club that strongly represents triumph and bankruptcy within Calcio, this title would go to Parma - the kings of back-to-back promotions.

Buffon: 'Why I cut my sleeves'

Gigi Buffon discussed his kit choices at Parma, Juventus and PSG. “I think I was the first goalkeeper to systematically cut my sleeves.”

The Italy legend posed for L’Equipe’s magazine Sport & Style in a series of different fashion looks.

He was asked if children become goalkeepers so they can dress differently?

“That’s true, in part. I wanted to be different from the others. I wanted my own particular outfit: my gloves, my cap, and a role with a lot of responsibility,” replied Buffon.
