Gianluigi Buffon: “It seemed like destiny”

May 13, 2015 - 11:01 pm

Gianluigi Buffon believes it was Juve’s “destiny” to reach the Champions League Final in Berlin, the site of Italy’s 2006 World Cup victory.

The Bianconeri eliminated Real Madrid 3-2 on aggregate to book their place in the final against Barcelona on June 6.

“It seemed like destiny, but it really did go the way we hoped,” Buffon told Sport Mediaset after tonights victory.

“Mind you, we mustn’t go there to be tourists. We are there to play a game that means a huge amount for all of us.

“I am so proud of my teammates, of all the work we’ve done and the journey we’ve made.

“You don’t get the chance to play a Champions League Final often, so we can’t do it by halves. We’ve got to give our all.”

    It would be a real fairytale if we could win the CL 🙂
    Contain their attack, get a free kick and a Maestro goal, lift CL with a 1-0. Let’s believe

    What a way that would be to end Pirlo’s Juve career. I wouldn’t even be bothered too much that he leaves then, we’ve had a great time but we’re solid in midfield without Pirlo too.

      I saw Barca play against Bayern, and judging from those two games only, fuck they are really good. Juve has to play with no mistakes for the whole game to pull this off.

        You know what i saw in the 2nd match against Bayern? As soon as Bayern put some real pressure, Barca panicked HARD. Bayern didn’t have much trouble creating chances in the 1st 10 minutes and got a goal from it. Barca started panicking after that while they still had 2 goals advantage, Bayern could have and maybe should have scored their 2nd goal soon after the first. With all this attacking their defence was weak and Barca could score twice, but Bayern did win the match.

          Yes, they should be the ones who worry, not us. Still, our defence have to stop 3 of the world’s best attackers, and they are in pretty good form it seems.

            I predict it will be a match with many goals. It’ll either be a small victory for us or them or a big victory for them.

            You pretty much covered every possible outcome. 😛

      Pirlo and Buffon.. Would be amazing if they can win the CL before retiring. Buffon especially, been with us his whole carreer and has never won it.

        For Buffon too ofc, but I was referring to Pirlo, who would leave Juve if we win the CL.

        For Buffon it would be the icing on the cake for his Juve career. For him alone I hope we win it, he shouldn’t have to retire without a CL trophy
