      Higuain talks us through his winner, amongst other things...

      “I knew [Daniele] De Rossi was tight to me and I received the ball from Sami [Khedira]. I got away from him and then I saw [Kostas] Manolas coming. I know in situations like that he tends to dive in and that was the case once again. I eluded him and then I didn’t have much time to react. Had I waited too long, a defender would have got the block in.”

      So instead he scored. The winner. In the one that really mattered.
       
      Gonzalo Higuain describing his goal makes it sound so simple, much like the way all top players make moments of magic look easy.

      “I’ve always been relaxed and I’ve said that since day one here. What matters to me is the team winning but of course scoring goals makes me happy. However, I know that if I stay calm, my hard work will be rewarded,” he continued.

      “We want to win the Champions League as well as a historic sixth straight Scudetto. You need the rub of the green in the Champions League whereas consistency is key in Serie A.”
       
      El Pipita concluded by revealing what first struck him about Juve.

      “When I saw the incredible will to win here, even after five league titles, that gave me this unbelievable strength within and the desire to give 100% and enjoy success with my team-mates.”
       
      Unbelievable - just like his goal tonight.
