Buffon produces brilliant performance Gianluigi Buffon produced a number of saves to keep Juventus in the game tonight. After Lemina was dismissed 54 minutes into the game, many thought that the game would sway in Lyon’s favour. However, a goal from Juan Cuadrado and a stunning performance from Gianluigi Buffon, made sure that Juventus took all three points, winning the game 1-0. The 38-year-old, who was recently criticised for a number of recent errors for both Juve and Italy, hit back with a series of saves against Lyon tonight.
The goalkeeper certainly proved he still has the ability in his locker as he pulled off an outstanding save from Alexandre Lacazette’s penalty kick, before denying Lyon twice later into the game. Buffon hits back at critics Speaking after the game, Buffon blasted his recent critics by indicating that he is not finished with football yet. The Italy international also stated that he is heavily critical of himself and doesn’t need anyone else to tell him where he is going wrong. “People can organise a funeral, but there’s nobody there,” he told Mediaset Premium . “I have said many times, without arrogance, that I am very auto-critical and don’t need to listen to others who try to us… .@rioferdy5 and @Redknapp reflect on 38-year-old @gianluigibuffon ‘s “phenomenal” match-winning performance. #UCL https://t.co/IVLh8Q6xVf — BT Sport Football October 18, 2016
