Real Madrid vs Juventus: Buffon speaks on retiring after Champions League clash

Juventus goalkeeper, Gianluigi Buffon, has insisted he will have no regrets if Wednesday’s Champions League quarter-final second leg at Real Madrid is his last game in the competition.

Buffon, 40, is set to end his playing career in the summer, unless Juve win the Champions League.

The Serie A champions go into the second leg in Spain trailing 3-0 and need an incredible result to qualify for the last four.

“I don’t know if this will be my last, and I don’t want to talk about it now.

“But any professional footballer would aim to make their last Champions League appearance at the Bernabeu against Real Madrid.

“As a kid, I would have signed for my last game in the Champions League to be here,” Buffon told Mediaset.

Buffon said the first leg result meant Juventus travelled to Madrid “a bit free in our minds, although I would have preferred it if we were stressed.”

He added: “All the times we’ve come to Madrid in the past, the chances of qualifying have always been high but that’s less the case this time, even though we still have to honour our history and the shirts we’re wearing.”
