Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon feels the Italians giants leave the Champions League with their heads held high.
Gianluigi Buffon was proud of Juventus’ performance despite their dramatic Champions League exit at the hands of Bayern Munich on Wednesday.
The Serie A champions appeared to be on their technique to the quarter-finals after they went 2-0 up in the opening 45 minutes courtesy of objectives from Paul Pogba and Juan Cuadrado, but Robert Lewandowski pulled one particular back just before Thomas Muller’s 91st-minute header sent the match to added time.
Thiago Alcantara and Kingsley Coman then struck to send Bayern through in the expense of Juventus, but Buffon feels they gave a fantastic account of themselves irrespective with the final outcome.
“This is usually a defeat that need to make us realize that we are better than last season. We are going out with or heads held high,” Buffon was quoted as saying around the official UEFA website.
“Football final results depend on possibilities. They attacked lots in the second half and they took advantage of their probabilities.
“It’s usually a pity to concede a aim inside the last minute of a game, but I’m proud of my group.”
