Buffon spoke to the media after his side's game against Real Madrid in which Cristiano Ronaldo scored one of the best goals of his career. "Ronaldo is a champion at an extraordinary level. Together with Messi, he is the only player that can create the most important victories for his team. He can be compared to Maradona and Pele," he said.
He is the player who has scored the most times against Buffon in the Champions League. With just 10 shots against the Italian, he has scored nine goals.
Ronaldo also broke a record by becoming the only player to score in 10 consecutive Champions League games. His goal after 2 minutes and 47 seconds was also the quickest of his 118 goals scored by the Portuguese in the competition.
