Veteran goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon was superb in their game against Sassuolo to keep their Champions League qualification hope alive. The 43-years-old Goalkeeper saved a penalty as Juventus beat Sassuolo to reduce the gap between them and Napoli who occupies the fourth place position in the Serie A table.
Gianluigi Buffon Never too Old to Save Juventus
Buffon has announced he will be leaving Juve at the end of the season but has not changed his commitment to the team. He denied Sassuolo a lead by saving Domenico Berardi’s first-half penalty. Former Paris Saint-Germain player Adrien Rabiot fired Juventus ahead with a low shot before Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 100th goal to double the lead in the first half.
Giacomo Raspadori pulled one back, but Argentine forward Paulo Dybala scored for Juventus to the visitors comfortable away win. Juventus had won the title in each of the previous nine years, but this season has not been easy. Andrea Pirlo has struggled in the league and is currently in the fifth-place position, the Europa spot. They have just two matches left to play in the league.
They will be playing champions Inter Milan on Saturday,, and it will be a must-win for them. They also have Bologna and hope Atalanta, AC Milan or Napoli drop points so they can climb up to the fourth place position.
