◼️ The Italian goalkeeper of Juventus returns to the Santiago Bernabéu in the return of the quarterfinals of the Champions League.

The colossal and almost eternal Italian goalkeeper, Gianluigi Buffon, returns with Juventus to the Santiago Bernabéu, for the return of the quarterfinals of the Champions League. Such is his football legend, that when Gigi donned Parma’s gloves in that historic debut on November 19, 1995, many of Real Madrid’s current footballers were not yet born.

What was the age of the merengue squad on the same day that Buffon debuted in professional football, in a mythical act announcing the birth of a star for Italian football?

It’s striking that up to six members of the first Real Madrid squad (Mayoral, Vallejo, Theo, Achraf, Marco Asensio and Ceballos) were not even born when Buffon began his career at the highest professional level.
