    Gonzalo Higuain winter scoring run reached 11 goals in nine games as Juve cruised past Cagliari on Matchday 24

    Two away games in four days with identical results.

    After easing aside Crotone, Juventus produced a repeat performance against Cagliari on Matchday 24, Gonzalo Higuain netting twice to take his tally to 11 league goals in nine matches.

    This night, like so many in Serie A throughout the winter months, was all about Higuain whose brace came from his only two shots on target at the Stadio Sant'Elia. 

    Both strikes were classic Pipita efforts. Claudio Marchisio superbly supplied the first, threading a pass through the Cagliari defence for Higuain to convert from close range on 37 minutes. 

    The second came from a clinical counter-attack moments after the interval; Juve's number 9 began the move himself in the Bianconeri half, arriving onto Paulo Dybala's lay-off at pace to guide the ball past the goalkeeper with the outside of his foot. 

    Two goals for Gonzalo, three more valuable points for the Old Lady.


    "It was massively important to win tonight. We must keep going - we're on the right track - and give 100% in every game."

    Juan Cuadrado

    "We have a lot of work to do in how quickly we shift the ball, move and occupy the space. We took our foot off the pedal a little tonight, but it needs to be full throttle from now until the end of the season."

    Massimiliano Allegri
