Gianluigi Buffon reaches another milestone after keeping a 300th clean sheet in a Juventus color.

The 40-year-old Italian legend was between the posts as Bianconerri destroy AC Milan 4-0 in the Coppa Italia final on Wednesday night with two goals from Medhi Benatia, Douglas Costa and own goal from Nikola Kalinic as they picked up the trophy at Stadio Olimpico.

It’s the fourth triumph in a row for Juventus, but the game also represented a personal milestone for Buffon.

According to Tuttosport, last night’s clean sheet was Buffon’s 300th for Juve, in his 655th appearance.

That means the veteran has kept a clean sheet in just under 46 percent of his matches for Juventus in all competitions.

Buffon already holds several records, including longest time without conceding a Serie A goal [974 minutes], most consecutive Serie A clean sheets [10] and most clean sheets in a Serie A season [21 in 2011–12 and 2015–16].
