Buffon Content With Juventus’ United Performance Against Bayern Munich

The ‘keeper praised the efforts of his team-mates, despite their failure to win again.
Juventus are without a victory after two matchdays of Champions League football this term, following their recent scoreless result against Bayern Munich in Germany.

The German powerhouse were arguably the better side on the night, however despite this, the Bianconeri’s number one goalkeeper, Gianluigi Buffon, was pleased with the performance of his team-mates over the 90 minutes.

“If we had won, the match would obviously have been better, but we did well to achieve a result away to a team like this,” Buffon affirmed to Sky.

“If I make a comparison with the Bologna match [from the weekend], I think that we played better tonight.

“Of course there was pain and fatigue amongst the players, but we gave a strong signal of unity, even when Bayern were attacking vehemently.”

The best chance of the game fell to the home side’s French attacker Franck Ribery, an effort that Buffon dealt with very well.

He added, “He wanted to score a great goal, but fortunately I am tall, and I managed to prevent the goal.”
