Leonardo Bonucci made his 100th Champions League appearance last night when Juventus beat Zenit Saint Petersburg in the competition.

The Euro 2020 winner has become a mainstay in the current Juve team, and his performance in the game last night helped the Bianconeri keep a clean sheet and earn all the points.

The former Bari defender has been one of the most consistent Italian players in the last decade.

He has spent much of his playing career at Juventus and has made over 300 appearances for them.

However, it is in the Champions League where he has appeared for a distinctive number of times with 100 outings.

The defender achieved that against Zenit and when asked after the game, he said he was targeting 50 more before retiring.

When asked how many more we can expect from him, he said, as quoted by Calciomercatoweb: “150 we can do it” and laughed.

The defender also spoke about the Bianconeri performances and says they are displaying the Juventus spirit again.

He said: “The most important thing are the team objectives: we have shown that with the application and the humility the results arrive and the 1-0 is no coincidence. We start to see the Juve spirit again. “
