Soccer: Juve prevail with Buffon heroics, Cuadrado strike

Rome, October 19 - Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon stopped a penalty as part of a long series of remarkable saves and Juan Cuadrado scored an outstanding goal to give Juventus a 1-0 win at Lyon in the Champions League on Tuesday. Victory keeps the Serie A champions joint top of Group H with seven points from three games alongside Sevilla. Colombia midfielder Cuadrado came off the bench to blast home a remarkable strike from a tight angle in the 76th minute and earn Juve the spoils. The Italian side were in 10 men at the time as midfielder Mario Lemina was sent off for a second yellow card in the 54th minute. "They can organise my funeral, but nobody is going," Juve captain Buffon, who has taken flak for some recent mistakes, told Mediaset television. "I've heard many stupid things in recent weeks".
