Chelsea beat Atletico with spectacular Giroud strike

Gianluigi Buffon: It seemed like destiny' for Juve to reach UCL final


Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon said it was "destiny" that Juventus reached the Champions League final in Berlin, with the Italy goalkeeper having won the World Cup there in 2006.

Buffon, 37, will travel back to Germany to take on Barcelona on June 6 after eliminating Real Madrid 3-2 on aggregate with a goal from Alvaro Morata.

Juventus have not been in a Champions League final since 2003, but Buffon could not be happier for the chance to play in another.

"It seemed like destiny, but it really did go the way we hoped," he told Sport Mediaset. "Mind you, we mustn't go there to be tourists. We are there to play a game that means a huge amount for all of us.

"I am so proud of my teammates, of all the work we've done and the journey we've made.

"You don't get the chance to play a Champions League Final often, so we can't do it by halves. We've got to give our all."
