The Bianconeri had already qualified for the 16th round but had to win 3-0 or to top the group with two clear goals rather than 2-0.
“It is a confidence booster for us, one not to be underestimated, as we came here as underdogs and overturned the 2-0 first leg result to win 3-0. That’s extraordinary,” the goalkeeper told Sky Sport Italia.
Gigi Buffon praised Barcelona’s ‘extraordinary’ 3-0 Juventus win and contrasted it to Real Madrid’s notorious 3-1 result.
With a pair of penalties from Cristiano Ronaldo and a Weston McKennie volley, they completed it.
“I believe in fate, so I think things don’t happen by fluke, I believe life compensates you. The last time we were winning 3-0 in Madrid and it ended 3-1. This time we were winning 3-0 and took that result home. I think this is a good position to be in.”
