Champions League

Gigi Buffon admits Cristiano gives him sleepless nights



Real Madrid are all set face to Juventus in their Champions League Quarter Final this Tuesday. The clash promises to be an epic fixture as the two sides have had some epic encounters in the past. The most recent one being in Cardiff as Real Madrid ran out 4-1 winners in the Champions League final at Cardiff.

Cristiano Ronaldo will once again be the player to watch out for as the Portuguese has been in red hot scoring form in the Champions League this season.

The Portuguese has scored in all the Champions League games he has played this season and Juventus would have to play out of their skins to stop Ronaldo.

Gigi Buffon talked to RMC Sport, ahead of his side’s game against Real Madrid and the Juve Captain admits the threat he is facing.

“This is a clash we certainly care about, but we know there are countless difficulties, that we are playing against a team that is stronger than us and who have extraordinary individuals.”

“However, we also realise that over two legs, the most talented side doesn’t always win. If we manage to do better than them over the two games, then we’ll achieve something amazing.”

Buffon also talked about Cristiano Ronaldo who has been in red hot form in the Champions League and shared his concern about facing the Portuguese.

“When you play against a team like Real Madrid, taking one player away won’t make a huge amount of difference. Having said that, knowing I’ll face Cristiano Ronaldo will give me a few sleepless nights.”
