CR7 looking to dominate Buffon again

R. Madrid vs Juventus: CR7 looking to extend dominance over Buffon

May 31, 2017 By Oscar Rojas
The Portuguese striker has some impressive numbers against the legendary shot-stopper. Who'll come out on top this Saturday?

When it comes to scoring goals, Cristiano Ronaldo is the king in UEFA Champions League history. In order to win the title, Gianluigi Buffon will have to find a way to stop him.

These football titans have clashed against each other four times, with each of them winning once while conceding two draws. The Portuguese ace has always found the back of Buffon's net, scoring five goals in those four matches. Here's a quick recap of how things have gone down between them.

Real Madrid 2-1 Juventus (Group stage, 2013-14 season)

CR7 dominated La Vecchia Signora with a brace in the opening match of the UCL 2013-14 campaing, which would end up with Los Blancos winning the title. His first goal against Buffon had Ronaldo showing off his dribbling skills, by leaving Buffon helpless laying on the ground before scoring a tap in.

Los Blancos continued their run in the competition by securing a draw against the Bianconeri in a tough match held in Turin. CR7 scored after a through ball by Karim Benzema, who set his team-mate up in such way that the approaching Buffon couldn't come close.

La Vecchia Signora managed to walk away from their home ground with a crucial advantage, which would eventually send them to their most recent UCL final. Nevertheless, Buffon's hoodoo against CR7 continued, as the Italian goalie wasn't able to defend a close-range header by Cristiano, that gave Los Blancos hope for the return leg.

In what will be remembered as Iker Casillas' final European game with Los Blancos, the Spanish giants weren't able to hold on to a one-goal provided by Cristiano Ronaldo's early penalty against Buffon, his fifth goal against the Italian shot-stopper. That goal would give CR7 one more UCL scoring title, which he had to share with Neymar and Messi.

Juventus' hopes of winning their third UCL title of all time will rely heavily on Buffon's skills. But his defense will have to be on their top form to keep the Portuguese player out of range when he tries to hurt them. Will Bonucci, Chiellini and Alves make it happen?
