Buffon Sets New Serie A Record, Remains Unbeaten In 836 Minutes

Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has now gone 836 minutes of league action without conceding a goal – a new record for Serie A since three points were awarded for a win in 1994.

Another clean sheet edged him closer to the overall record of 929 minutes, set by AC Milan’s Sebastiano Rossi in 1993/94.

Juventus went ahead in the 24th minute when Barzagli seized on a header from Mario Mandzukic and finished from close range.

The visitors held on in the second half despite late pressure from the hosts before doubling their lead with four minutes remaining when substitute Lemina produced a weaving run and cool finish.
