So good...

Juventus lead! Gonzalo Higuain has finished off a great team goal for Juve that’s given them a 1-0 lead and a vital away goal against AS Monaco. After about a half of an hour of feeling each other out, the deadlock was finally broken by a beautiful move that originated from midfield with a clever back heel flick from Paulo Dybala and ended with Dani Alves setting up Higuain for a great side-footed finish to open the scoring. It’s a lovely way to get on the board and hopefully they can’t keep the advantage the rest of the way without conceding.

The goal was the product of a nine-pass sequence that began on the other side of the field. Quite impressive stuff.

He’s done it again! Higuain has scored again to extend Juve’s lead to 2-0 and score another crucial away goal. He met a floated cross to the far post in the 60th minute with a perfect sliding finish to double the lead. What a performance.
