Juventus close in on Champions League Final

Gonzalo Higuain scored twice as Juventus took a big step towards the UEFA Champions League final after a clinical 2-0 victory over Monaco on Wednesday.

The French hosts started brightly, with Kylian Mbappe heading at Gianluigi Buffon before forcing another low save, but Higuain ruthlessly finished two fine Dani Alves assists, sweeping the Brazilian’s back heel in on 29 minutes, and then finishing well again just before the hour.

Radamel Falcao went close for Monaco, but the Ligue I leaders ultimately lacjed the cutting edge to break down the well-organized Italians.

The second leg of the tie will be played in Turin next Tuesday.
