    Juan Cuadrado’s bullet header powers Juve past Sampdoria as Gianluigi Buffon surpasses Giampiero Boniperti’s longevity record

    On a day when Gianluigi Buffon became the club’s all-time longest servant as his personal black and white clock ticked over to 39,681 minutes on the pitch, just one number mattered for Juventus in Genoa as Juan Cuadrado’s spectacular diving header saw Massimiliano Allegri’s men enter March’s international break with a 1-0 success away to Sampdoria and a 24th win from a possible 29 in the 2016/17 Serie A season.

    Dominant early on following the Colombian’s acrobatic finish on seven minutes, the Bianconeri found themselves ruing the excellent form of stand-in keeper Christian Puggioni whose first-half performance alone kept the scores at 1-0 at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris.

    A Samp second-half revival made life more difficult for the visitors without testing record-breaker Buffon who ticked off his latest career landmark with a highly satisfactory clean sheet and three precious points as Juve maintained their commanding grip on the Scudetto with just nine games to go.
