TURIN, Italy (AP) Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has broken one of Serie A's greatest records, going 930 consecutive minutes without conceding a goal.

Buffon broke the 22-year-old Serie A record in the fourth minute of the Derby della Mole on Sunday.

The unbeaten record was held by Sebastiano Rossi, who kept a clean sheet for 929 consecutive minutes for AC Milan from Dec. 12, 1993, to Feb. 27, 1994, beating the previous mark set by former Juventus goalkeeper Dino Zoff in 1972-73 by 26 minutes.

The 38-year-old Buffon has conceded just one league goal in 2016, Antonio Cassano's strike for Sampdoria.

Buffon, who was a crucial part of Italy's World Cup winning side in 2006, has been at Juventus since 2001.
