Buffon keeps 200th clean sheet for Juventus in win over Roma

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 441

The 38-year-old was the usual safe pair of hands as the Serie A champions picked up a narrow win to extend their lead at the top

Gianluigi Buffon held his 200th clean sheet for Juventus in Saturday's 1-0 win over Roma.

The Serie A champions extended their lead at the top of the table over their main contenders to seven points thanks to Gonzalo Higuain's 14th-minute strike.

While the Bianconeri attack otherwise struggled to break through the visitors' defence they were able to rely upon the 38-year-old, who still looks on the top of his game.

Buffon may have only needed to make two saves throughout the 90 minutes, he has already impressed this season by setting a new record for consecutive clean sheets with a run of 10.

And the goalkeeper has now added another impressive milestone with the club since joining in 2001 from Parma.

The World Cup winner already holds the record for most Serie A clean sheets across his spells at Parma and Juve.

Buffon is currently contracted to Juve until 2018, who now sit seven points clear of Roma.
