After Gianluigi Buffon’s new Serie A record, it’s time to take a look at the top 5 moments of the Juventus legend’s career.

Gianluigi Buffon equalled Paolo Maldini’s record for the most Serie A appearances on Wednesday evening by playing his 647th game during Juventus’ impressive 2-1 win away to Sampdoria.

The 176-time Italy international has been a regular member of the team following his return from Paris Saint-Germain.

Not even playing back-up to Wojciech Szczesny has kept him out of the line-up for long, with Buffon starting in the club’s last three matches.

And even with his 42nd birthday coming up in January, the goalkeeper remains determined to win for his beloved Juventus despite achieving almost everything a player can dream of.

So, in light of the Italian’s latest great achievement, we give you the five biggest moments of his career so far.
