Who best to turn to following a fifth consecutive league win than Juventus captain Gianluigi Buffon, who picked up his 400th Serie A appearance for the club this evening in Rome, for a summary of the Bianconeri’s current situation?
Impressive figures all round for Massimiliano Allegri’s men following their 2-0 victory over Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico but for Buffon, the hard work is only just beginning.
Speaking after the match, Gigi began: “Even after tonight, we still haven’t achieved anything yet. We won a very difficult encounter that keeps us moving forward on the right path but let’s not forget, even if all the results go our way tomorrow, we’ll still only be in fourth place.
“Juventus just don’t finish fourth, we’re better than that.”
And as for the secret behind Juve’s superb winning run of late?
Teamwork, pride in the jersey and a rekindling of the Bianconeri’s winning mentality.
“Something has clicked in the last few weeks. We are a team that is not used to being off the pace in the league and one that is also well aware of our winning past. We’re starting to move in the right direction now and to gel as a squad. That’s all there is to it, there’s no secret formula.”
