It was a battling display from Massimiliano Allegri’s men as they managed to come away with three vital points despite having their backs to the wall for the majority of the match


 Juan Cuadrado struck a fine winner for 10-men Juventus in Tuesday’s 1-0 Champions League win over Lyon after Gianluigi Buffon had pulled off several stunning saves, including a penalty save.

Buffon had made errors in his previous two games for club and country which resulted in goals, but returned to his supreme best at the Parc OL to keep a hard-earned clean sheet.

The 38-year-old spurned Alexandre Lacazette from the penalty spot before producing a reflex save of the highest quality to keep Nabil Fekir’s deflected strike out.

Mario Lemina was sent off shortly after that stop to tilt the balance of play firmly in the hosts’ favour, but again Buffon stood in their way.

And substitute Cuadrado completed the smash and grab in fitting style, slamming home a mesmeric goal worthy of following his captain’s fine earlier example.
