Juventus keeper Buffon: Winning at Barcelona extraordinary

Juventus goalkeeper Gigi Buffon hailed their performance for Tuesday's 3-0 Champions League win at Barcelona.

The Bianconeri had already qualified for the Round of 16, but needed to win 3-0 or by two clear goals other than 2-0 to top the group.

They achieved it with a pair of Cristiano Ronaldo penalties and a Weston McKennie volley.

“It is a confidence booster for us, one not to be underestimated, as we came here as underdogs and overturned the 2-0 first leg result to win 3-0. That's extraordinary," the goalkeeper told Sky Sport Italia.

“I believe in fate, so I think things don't happen by fluke, I believe life compensates you. The last time we were winning 3-0 in Madrid and it ended 3-1. This time we were winning 3-0 and took that result home. I think this is a good position to be in."
