In the match of the sixth round of the group stage of the Champions League against Barcelona (3: 0), Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon held another clean sheet in his career.
In addition, the 42-year-old footballer made a record number of saves after the strikes of the striker of the Catalan club Lionel Messi, reports Football Italia.
In this fight, Messi struck seven shots on target on target of the opponent's goal, but none of them was effective. Thus, the experienced goalkeeper “Old Lady” chalked up seven saves after Messi's blows. Before that, such a number of attempts by the Argentinean could not be neutralized by anyone.
The last time the Barcelona leader hit the opponents' goal at least seven times was back in October 2018 in a Champions League match.
Messi and Buffon met on the football field six times in their careers, but only in one of these fights the Argentinian was able to score against the legendary goalkeeper.
After the match, the players exchanged jerseys.
Earlier, Gianluigi Buffon called his team's confident victory over Barcelona no coincidence.
