Why Goalkeepers are always frightened at the sight of Ronaldo - Juventus Goal-stopper, Buffon

The first leg between Juventus and Real Madrid was a very astonishing one for Cristiano Ronaldo as he netted two great goals. 

Reacting to the second leg, veteran goalkeeper explained that the Portugese player is consistent and so important for his team.

"I don't know if he is the most complete player, because I've faced some great footballers in all these years, but right now for his position he is the most decisive," Buffon said in Tuesday's pre-match press conference.

"I have no doubts about that.

"He is impressive.

"He is consistent and always scores goals."

Discussing the tie and Juventus' chances of staging a comeback, the goalkeeper was realistic without being defeatist.

"We'll have the same mentality as always with the objective of obtaining the best result possible," he said.

"It is a match which should be honoured, both because of the rival and the setting.

"I remember some incredible comebacks and one must try the impossible to dream."

Asked if this would be his final Champions League game, Buffon didn't want to predict the future.

"It's possible, but it doesn't depress me," he said.

"When I was a kid I'd have signed up to do what I've done and to have my final game at the [Estadio Santiago] Bernabeu.

"I'll look at the positive side of the situation.

"The important thing is that this doesn't end up being Juventus' last game in this year's Champions League."

The second leg kicks off at 20:45 CET on Wednesday night
