The legendary Italian believes that the most determined side will win the knockout-tie.
Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon thinks that it will be up to who wants the win more badly in the quarter final between the Bianconeri and Los Blancos.
The two sides have met a number of times in recent editions of the tournament, with Zidane’s men coming on top in all of them.
However, Buffon has not given up just yet and looks forward to the clash with the reigning European champions.
“Sometimes we’ve won and sometimes we’ve lost,” Buffon wrote on Twitter about meeting Madrid.
“The truth is that when you lose to certain teams, made up of similar champions, you don’t have the regrets and frustration that usually come with defeat.
“I hope that goes for them too! The most determined will win.”
Alcune volte abbiamo vinto noi, altre volte abbiamo perso. La verità è che quando si perde con determinate squadre, composte da campioni simili, non hai i rimpianti e le frustrazioni che, di solito, accompagnano le sconfitte. Spero valga anche per loro!Vincano i più determinati! pic.twitter.com/lzhvQWTCO0
