Buffon: I cannot explain why Juventus played like we did

The usually formidable shot-stopper picked the ball out of his net four times in a disastrous day for the Italian champions

Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon was unable to identify the cause of his team's collapse after they slumped to a 4-1 Champions League final loss to Real Madrid on Saturday.

The Serie A heavyweights were level at 1-1 going into the break in Cardiff thanks to Mario Mandzukic's spectacular overhead kick, but Casemiro's deflected strike, Cristiano Ronaldo's second and a late Marco Asensio effort saw Zinedine Zidane's side become the first team to retain the Champions League in its current format.

It marked yet more disappointment on the biggest stage in European club football for veteran Buffon, who also lost the 2003 and 2015 deciders to AC Milan and Barcelona respectively.

"We are disappointed," he was quoted as saying by UEFA.com.

"We played very well in the first half, we thought we had enough to win the game.

"I cannot explain why we played like we did in the second half. Real Madrid deserved to win in the second half.

"They showed their class and the attitude needed to play in this kind of game."
