Gianluigi Buffon sets Serie A record in Juventus win over Torino. He breaks Paolo Maldini’s Serie A appearance record with 648 games.
Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon set a record for the number of Serie A appearances. He played his 648th game in the Italian top flight in a 4-1 win against Torino on Saturday.
The 42-year-old, who made his Serie A debut for Parma as a 17-year-old in November 1995, overtook the record previously held by former AC Milan defender Paolo Maldini.
Buffon stayed with Parma for six seasons, making 168 Serie A appearances, before joining Juventus in 2001. He left the Turin side at the end of the 2017-18 season and joined Paris Saint-Germain, where he spent one season before returning to Juventus.
