Juventus goalkeeper Gigi Buffon praised matchwinner Carlos Tevez after victory over Torino.

Tevez secured a 1-0 victory for the Bianconeri, though Omar El Kaddouri appeared to be tripped by Andrea Pirlo in the final minutes.

“It’s one of the few times Torino were able to play against us with no pressure, thanks to the great campaign they are having,” the goalkeeper told Sky Sport Italia.

“It was a ‘real’ derby, quite an English-style one with the referee letting the action run. Compliments to Torino, as their performance made it really difficult for us.

“In a complicated and balanced encounter like this, the difference is made by those moments of magic from a champion. We’ve got several and today Carlos was decisive.”
