Still as important as ever as he reaches the twilight of his career, the legendary shot-stopper has now kept 262 Serie A clean Sheets

Following Juventus‘ 1-0 victory over Napoli, Gianluigi Buffon has now gone 564 minutes without conceding a goal to set the record for the 2015/16 season.

Already holder of the all-time record for most Serie A clean sheets, the 38-year-old overtook Partenopei keeper Pepe Reina’s previous record for this season of 535 minutes, which was set between October and November.

Juve have now won 15 consecutive league games and the Italy international hasn’t been beaten in his last outings, with Antonio Cassano the last player to score past him in the Bianconeri’s 2-1 win over Sampdoria on January 10.

Shutouts against Udinese, Roma, Chievo, Genoa, Frosinone and finally Napoli followed as Massimilano Allegri’s side charged to the top of the table and take Serie A’s top spot.

Buffon still has some way to go to break the overall Serie A record for consecutive minutes without conceding a goal, which is held by former AC Milan goalkeeper Sebastiano Rossi.

In the 1993/94 season, Rossi went an incredible 929 minutes without picking the ball from out of his net as the Rossoneri went on to win the Scudetto for the third time on the trot.
