Buffon to join 600 club

Gigi Buffon is set to reach a landmark tomorrow, as Chievo v Juventus will be his 600th Serie A appearance. The Bianconeri goalkeeper is currently on 599 games in the Italian top flight, played with the jerseys of Parma and Juve. If he features on Sunday afternoon at the Stadio Bentegodi, it’ll be his 600thSerie A match.

Buffon made his debut on November 19, 1995 in Parma’s 0-0 draw with Milan and at the time he was just 17 years and nine months old.It would’ve already been much closer to Maldini’s total had World Cup winner Buffon not accepted a drop down into Serie B with Juventus after Calciopoli in 2006.
