Barcelona's Lionel Messi scores twice against Juventus goalkeeper Buffon, snaps streak
Messi broke Buffon's clean sheet with class
In 180-plus minutes last season in the Champions League, Lionel Messi and his Barcelona teammates had a difficult time finding the back of the net and scoring against Gianluigi Buffon and Juventus. However, on Tuesday in the group stage opener at Camp Nou, Leo was back to his normal, dominant self and made the Italians pay. Messi scoredjust before the end of the first half, megging his defender in the process and leaving Juve goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon frozen, marking his first career goal on the Italian legend. Take a look:
Golazo. What a lovely low hit, and Buffon just stood there like a statue, knowing nothing could be done. These two faced each other on four separate occasions. Messi had gone 315 minutes without finding the back of the net against Buffon. But he wasn't done. Messi got another in the second half in a monster performance.
Quite the way to break the goalless streak. Not too bad.
