Gianluigi Buffon - Juventus FC v US Citta di Palermo - Serie A

Lionel Messi’s drought v Gigi Buffon continues after Juventus 3 – Barcelona 0

Barca lose at Juve

Barcelona crashed to a 3-0 defeat at Juventus Stadium tonight, as the Old Lady appeared to put one foot in the Champions League semi-final.

A brilliant brace from Paulo Dybala and a header from Chiellini took Juve to the huge win over the Catalans, who badly under-performed on the night.

Barcelona were favourites coming into the game, but they’re now really up against it to make the semis.

But of course, if anyone can do it, it’s Barcelona: just last month they pulled off one of the greatest ever comebacks by beating PSG 6-1, having lost the first leg 4-0.

Messi still hasn’t scored against Buffon

None of Barcelona’s big players performed tonight, in fact the famous MSN had a real off day.

In particular, Leo Messi, who failed to get going all night, and was unable to find his shooting range.

The Argentine drew blank in front of goal (just like all his teammates), which means that his drought against Gigi Buffon lingers on: he’s still never scored against the Italian custodian.
