Zidane and Buffon's careers have always crossed paths

Мнениеот Bongngarthom | Чет Мар 29, 2018 10:31 am


Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi's respective careers will be forever intertwined and remembered 3mbet closely throughout history, however Gianluigi Buffon and Zinedine Zidane have shared a similar kind of tapestry with their respective careers having almost always crossed paths.As Buffon approaches 40 years old, his playing career in professional football is coming to an end, whereas Zidane has long since moved into coaching and has steered Real Madrid to two successive Champions Leagues.Since 1996 the pair have been involved at the top level, and in the quarter-final of the Champions League they will meet yet again, likely for the final time.Buffon has one last opportunity to lift the trophy that eludes him, the one he is desperate to get his hands on, whilst the French coach has the chance to make history by becoming the first coach to ever win three finals of the modern competition in a row.Zidane arrived in Turin in 1996 whilst Buffon was just making his mark with Parma, the first meeting between the two was settled by a Zidane own-goal in Parma's favour.The pair were then teammates in Turin for five days until Florentino Perez broke the world transfer record in July 2001 to secure the signing of Zidane, whilst Juventus reinvested the money in the Italian stopper.Not even two full years would pass from that moment before the duo would meet again in the Champions League, on this occasion it was the Italian giants who would book their place in the Old Trafford showpiece at the expense of Los Blancos.Andriy Shevchenko's penalty 3mbet condemned Juventus to a shootout defeat, the first of Buffon's final heartaches, whilst the clubs would do battle in 2005 with the Italians again emerging victorious courtesy of Marcelo Zalayeta's extra-time winner.Berlin then played host to Zidane and Buffon's most famous encounter, one which the Frenchman remembers with shame. The World Cup final of 2006 was a pulsating affair, one which Buffon's Italy came out on top in, although, only after the current Los Blancos coach was shown a straight red card in his final ever professional match for headbutting Marco Materazzi. Many often forget, but Zidane actually scored a wonderful Panenka penalty past the veteran goalkeeper earlier in that match.Following the Frenchman's retirement it took 11 years for the duo to become reacquainted, it came in Cardiff in the 2017 Champions League final.After two previous final defeats, it finally seemed as though the former 3mbet Parma goalkeeper would finally get his hands on the trophy, especially given Juventus' incredible defensive record throughout the season.For one reason or another, Massimiliano Allegri's charges collapsed in spectacular fashion, leaving the Turin club devastated and setting up this last-chance-saloon tie for the iconic keeper.
