Monaco 0 – 2 Juventus
Gonzalo Higuain scored twice to give Juventus a 2-0 win at Monaco in the Champions League semi-final first leg, and close in on a second Champions League final in three seasons .
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.
Radamel Falcao went close for Monaco after the break before Alves’ measured cross saw Higuain put Juve in control.
