He was a key figure as Pirlo’s side won in Reggio Emilia and received an average media rating of 7.5 following an 8 from Tuttosport, 7.5 from Corriere dello Sport-Stadio and 7 from La Gazzetta dello Sport.
The Bianconeri veteran was outstanding and, especially in the first half, influenced this final outcome of the match. After 16 minutes, with the score at 0-0, he denied Berardi from the spot to become the oldest player in Serie A history to save a penalty (43 years). Five minutes from halftime, he made another brilliant save, this time to thwart Obiang.
For the rest of the game, he gave a lot of confidence to the defenders in front of him, showing one more time that he is a true leader.
