“Every season I have the objective to win the Champions League, every season we have that objective as a team. ”

“People ask me a lot about the Champions League because it is the one thing I haven’t won – and my answer is that every seasons I am fortunate enough to compete in it I will be trying to win it.”Gianluigi Buffon

“I have had a successful career with a lot of trophies, I don’t feel like I need it – but I want it. I don’t know if it is my destiny to win it – but as ever we will be working hard.”

Juventus are set to face Dinamo Zagrab on Wednesday with the top spot still up for grab in the Group H.
