"Every year I thought it could be the right year but it is now 24 years since I have been trying to win the champions League. Its very hard to do so since you need luck a times to win it. Right now it's special for us because Neymar got injured.

Special Player

"For us, Neymar is a special player since he did unbelievable stuff for the team in the last three months. For us, it's dnagerous not to have him," Buffon said.
