Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon said today that Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi can be compared to Maradona and Pelé after the Real Madrid side’s display in the Champions League quarter-finals.
Ronaldo scored twice in a 3-0 home win at Juventus and made it 3-0 for Marcelo, but Buffon said he was just “the usual Ronaldo.”
“Messi and he can be compared to Maradona and Pelé for what they have been doing season after season. We made some mistakes. When we play against the best, it can happen, “he said, admitting also that Juventus are not likely to qualify for the next phase of the competition.
Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri said today that Ronaldo’s second goal with a bicycle kick was “an extraordinary goal”.
“I do not know if Cristiano Ronaldo ‘s goal is the best in football history, but it’s certainly an extraordinary goal. We can only congratulate him on what he has done, “said the coach.
Massimiliano Allegri, who was “disappointed” with the third goal of the ‘whites’, admitted that “it is impossible” for Juventus to reverse the unfavorable result in the second leg of the tie, which is held in Madrid on 11 April.
Andrea Barzagli, Juventus defender, said the team would have had a “perfect” night to face “one of the best in the world as Ronaldo.”
“If we give him some space, he will punish us. He scored a goal that will go down in history and unfortunately it was against us, “he said, considering it was” a Playstation goal. “
