Monaco 0-2 Juventus: Gonzalo Higuain puts Juvi in Control

Gonzalo Higuain scored twice to give Juventus a 2-0 win at Monaco in the Champions League semi-final first leg.

The Argentine gave the visitors the lead on 29 minutes, finishing low into the bottom left corner from inside the area after a brilliant Juventus team move.

It was 2-0 on 59 minutes again through Higuain, who got ahead of goalkeeper Danijel Subasic to poke home from close range after Dani Alves’ measured cross.

Juventus, who are yet to concede in over 600 minutes of Champions League football, will defend their two-goal lead in the second leg in Turin on Tuesday evening.

Monaco looked shell-shocked thereafter as Juventus sat in to keep their lead for the remainder of the game, and the French side came close only once more as Buffon tipped over Valere Germain’s header late on.
