Monaco – Gonzalo Higuain scored the only  two goals of the match, to put Juventus in a strong position for Champions League Final in Cardiff. 

The first goal came from a well thought out assist back heel from former Barcelona player Dani Alves, which found Higuain with a clinical finish. 


Higuaín: “I fight so hard for these moments. I’m delighted with the goals but this isn’t over yet.”

The second goal, involved the same two players on the hour mark. Monaco had a few chances to get a goal back but Juventus defence stood firm. 

Chiellini: “2-0 away is an important result. We’re very happy but we can do better in defence and we can use the ball better.”

The youthful Monaco side have a tough task in the second leg. 

Buffon: “Every game I want to show I deserve to play at this level despite my age. The day I quit, I want people to be sad about it.”
