What Buffon did to Messi after the match as he finally scored against him
Once again the Camp Nou stood still after another stunning performance from Barcelona own magician, Lionel Messi.
Messi was on a mission as he entered the game with at least one thing on his mind – score against Gianluigi Buffon.
Prior to the match Messi has not scored a goal against Buffon or even Juventus.
Barcelona face Juventus last season over 180-plus minutes and couldn’t find the net. And even when they won the Italians back in the 2015 Champions League final, Messi was not on the scoresheet.
It was a big task for Messi who has already scored against the likes of Van der Sar, Petr Cech and Manuel Neuer.
And Buffon has now been crossed off his list.
Buffon and Messi have always shared a mutual respect and after the match Buffon gave Messi a hug.
Anyway, these 2 are legends of the beautiful game and should both be respected, buffon knew that this day would comepic.twitter.com/EtcFf1z6aA
