On the eve of the match between Juventus and Real Madrid for the first leg of the quarterfinals of the Champions League the captain and goalkeeper of the “Vecchia Signora” Gianluigi Buffon commented on the chances of his team in the key and surprised with praise the star of the rival box Cristiano Ronaldo who is an “assassin” in front of the porch .
“ I have an unlimited admiration for Ronaldo, over time he has been able to improve . I admire him because he is a person who knows what he does and pragmatic In recent years he proved to be intelligent, he changed his position, he spends less energy than before but is really lethal “, highlighted Buffon in an interview with Marca .
” Face to goal is really a killer . With that clarity to the h I only saw Trezeguet . I was fortunate to play against Ronaldo the Brazilian, with and against (Zlatan) Ibrahimovic, but Cristiano is collecting record after record and hence my full admiration. “
The black-and-white veteran goalkeeper also recognized that Real Madrid is a better team than the “Juve”, something confirmed by the “history”
“I do not say it, the history says it, the record, the numbers and before that situation I think that winning the Champions is still a dream that is very complicated to fulfill. We can compete against Real Madrid, but they throughout their history and in recent years have shown that they have something special, different. “
However,” no team is invincible. “Real Madrid can be the favorite, but “the” Juve “is also a great team that knows how to win titles.”
