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.”
