Gianluigi Buffon names one surprising player

Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has heaped praise on Cristiano Ronaldo ahead of their Champions League quarter-final against Real Madrid.

The 40-year-old Italian legend has reached three Champions League finals with Juventus but is still yet to get hands on the trophy.

Ronaldo scored twice as Real Madrid beat the Italian giants 4-1 in the final last season.

Buffon, who is surely coming to the end of his career, is set to face the Portuguese forward in Turin on Tuesday night.

Ronaldo was rested by Zinedine Zidane over the weekend but has been in scintillating form recently, scoring 21 goals in his last 11 appearances for Los Blancos.
