during the UEFA Champions League Semi Final first leg match between AS Monaco v Juventus at Stade Louis II on May 3, 2017 in Monaco, Monaco.

Kylian Mbappé did an interview with Gazzetta dello Sport and also Juventus & Gigi Buffon came up as topics.

“It’s strange that Juventus isn’t considered as because we always talk about Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich as the main favourites. There’s not much talk about Juve who are always up there, they’ve been finalists twice in the past three years. Playing against them is difficult, a real block. To score against Juve you have to be perfect, and that’s what Real managed to do in the final last year. Juve, in my opinion, remain among the candidates to lift the trophy.”

“Scoring against Buffon? Buffon is awesome. For players like me, who are at the start of their career, playing against players of his level is a dream come true. I scored against him, that’s true, but he also saved a lot of my shots. In just two games against him I learned a lot. I hope I can face him again, in football you always want to challenge yourself against the best.”
