    Tonight’s inclusion in the Bianconeri’s starting line-up against Lyon sees the captain reach yet another significant milestone: 700 club outings

    Gigi Buffon has crossed yet another extraordinary milestone in his illustrious career with tonight’s appearance in Lyon: 700 club outings in all competitions.

    After reaching 500 Serie A games in November and passing legendary goalkeeper Dino Zoff’s total of 476 Juventus matches in March, Buffon is this evening celebrating a further achievement worthy of his reputation as the world’s finest goalkeeper.

    There’s been plenty of success along the way, with his first taste of silverware coming courtesy of Coppa Italia (1998/99), UEFA Cup (1998/99) and Italian Super Cup (1999) triumphs at first club Parma, whom he represented on 220 occasions.

    Even more accolades were to follow in the wake of Buffon’s switch to Turin in 2001: six Scudetto titles (2001/02, 2002/03, 2004/05, 2005/06, 2011/12 and 2012/13) and four Italian Super Cups (2002, 2003, 2012 and 2013).

    The next landmark Buffon will now be chasing is Roberto Bettega’s 482 appearances in the black and white stripes, a feat that will be equalled with just two more outings.
