      “You have to hand it to the strikers. We’re playing well and our motivation is high,” said the captain after the win over Sassuolo

      Gigi Buffon lauded Juve’s strength in attack after the Bianconeri swept Sassuolo aside with a 2-0 win at Mapei Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

      “Our strikers showed their quality today,” began the goalie after the game. “They pressed hard, kept the pressure up and fought for every ball. If that’s not there then you’re not going to win football matches, so well done to them. And well done to those on the bench too – they give us added motivation. Sometimes you have to send a message and we’ve done that.”

      It was an important result for Juventus, with their nearest rivals dropping points elsewhere: “We’ve taken three big points, especially given that Roma have lost. We just need to keep focusing on ourselves.”

      Buffon was in familiar form against Sassuolo, producing a spectacular save to preserve his clean sheet, but the captain shrugged off the praise.

      “As I always say, that’s what I’m there for. If I want to carry on playing, I need to keep making saves when they’re needed.”
