Made in Italy: Buffon and Chiellini play key role as Juventus beat Barcelon

What a night at the Juventus Stadium! The Italian champions really gave their fans something to celebrate with a convincing win over Barcelona and the Azzurri players Gianluigi Buffon and Giorgio Chiellini played a huge role in that first-leg triumph.

The Bianconeri and Italy captain was his usual self as the great leader for the team. He was capable in directing his defence and he was able to step up and make saves when called upon. One of the fixture’s key moments was as Buffon made a brilliant reaction to keep out Andres Iniesta who could have leveled after a brilliant pass from Lionel Messi.

Chiellini also warrants a mention for as he showed his aerial prowess to score the goal which made it 3-0 after stopping Barca’s stars throughout. It was his first goal in the Champions League after seven years and he couldn’t have scored it at a better moment.
