Before Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon and Borussia Dortmund’s midfield star Marco Reus go Head to Head in the next round of the UEFA Champions League™, the two players had an encounter away from the pitch.
Buffon and Reus showed off their own achievements with some friendly provocation, building up some extra spice ahead of the showdown on Tuesday night.
Juventus are set to host Borussia Dortmund at the Juventus Stadium in the first leg of the Champions League Round of 16 tie.
The Italian champions finished second in Group A on 10 points, three points behind last season’s runners-up Atletico Madrid. On the other hand, Dortmund topped their respective group with 13 points, but snatched the top spot on goal difference after tying with Arsenal on points tally and head-to-head.
Previous meetings between both sides were most notable in the 1990s, having met one another in nine encounters, including a two-legged UEFA Cup final and a Champions League final.
