Gianluigi Buffon produced a stunning last-minute save to help Juventus beat Bologna

Buffon flew through the air to stop Bologna grabbing a late equaliser

Gianluigi Buffon made his triumphant return to Juventus this summer after spending a season with Paris Saint-Germain.

The Italian legend was eager to return to break Paolo Maldini's Serie A appearance record and he did just that after making his 903rd appearance for the Bianconeri against SPAL.

But you may ask the question, are his inclusions in the team purely sentimental? No, no they're not.

Tonight in Juve's 2-1 win over Bologna, Buffon reminded the world that he is still a world-class goalkeeper.

In the final minute of stoppage-time in Turin, the 41-year-old produced an outstanding save to somehow prevent a late Bologna equaliser.

A spectacular effort and an even better save.

Goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Miralem Pjanic either side of Danilo's brilliant effort helped secure a priceless three points for Maurizio Sarri's side.

After Napoli's 2-0 win over Verona earlier today, a win was a must for Juve and with the help of Buffon, the Bianconeri delivered.

With the Italian and Wojciech SzczÄ™sny guarding the net for the season, Sarri's side are in safe hands.

They just need Matthijs de Ligt to rediscover his best form in front of them...
