WTF is Football Italia is on claiming it will be Gigi's 902nd Juve appearance
By Football Italia staff
Gianluigi Buffon is expected to make his 902nd Juventus appearance today, allowing him to equal Paolo Maldini’s record.
The goalkeeper returned to Juventus after a season at Paris Saint-Germain and is likely to start in today’s Serie A encounter with Hellas Verona at 17.00 UK time (16.00 GMT).
This is set to be his 902nd match for Juventus in all competition.
It allows Buffon to equal the record set by Milan legend Paolo Maldini for most games in a single club jersey.
The Italy international will also be making his 641st Serie A appearance, again closing on Paolo’s record of 647.
