      "I work hard, I fight and I try to do my best, always. Now let’s focus on wrapping the league up," said the striker after his brace in Monaco

      Gonzalo Higuain branded Juventus’ 2-0 first-leg victory over Monaco a "huge win" after his brace put the Bianconeri firmly in the driving seat in their Champions League semi-final tie.

      "I’m delighted," began the Argentine striker, speaking after the full-time whistle. "It was vital that we did well in this semi-final and we’ve done that. This is a huge win.

      "The team did a great job and we managed to score goals too. We still have the second leg to play and they’re a good side, but we hope to go through to the final."

      Higuain also spoke of his personal satisfaction at rediscovering his form in front of goal in the Champions League.

      "I work hard, I fight and I try to do my best, always. The most important thing was that I stayed calm and that’s what I’ve done," he said.

      With an important result in the bag, the striker was keen to refocus the team on domestic matters.

      "We want to beat Torino and wrap up the league as soon as possible. Let’s focus on that now," he said.
