In an interview at the end of the last night match, OL – Juventus 0-1, Miralem Pjanic has underlined the importance of having Buffon:

“It’s crazy to question him. There’s not much left to add – Gigi is always there when you need him. He’s a great person and a fantastic goalkeeper and he proved his quality once again tonight.”

“We gave it 200% after the sending off and eventually got the goal. This is a huge win. We knew it was going to be tough with ten men, but as I say we showed no fear,” added Pjanic.

“We know there are no easy games in the Champions League and Lyon produced one of their best performances of the season tonight. Every match counts in Europe and you’re not always going to win and dominate, but we showed character and desire to get the victory tonight.”
