Dunphy impressed by 'magnificent' Juventus and clinical Higuain

11 May 2017

On Wednesday, two goals from Gonzalo Higuain, both set up by Brazilian wing-back Dani Alves, gave Serie A table-toppers Juve the upperhand in their two-legged semi-final clash with Monaco.

Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain struck twice as the Italian side produced a masterful all-round display to beat Monaco 2-0 in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final on Wednesday.

Gianluigi Buffon (Juventus FC 'keeper): "We approached this match in the right way, and we got the job done on the pitch".

"Juventus played very intelligently and we came up against one of the best teams in the world", Silva said.

He has, however, never won the Champions League, losing two finals with Juventus, in 2003 and 2015.

Arsenal defeat Southampton to close gap on top four
The Gunners were sloppy and appeared to lack motivation at the start of the second half as the Saints dominated the early possession.

But it would wrong to label Italy's "Old Lady" as a purely defensive outfit. The team has not conceded a Champions League goal in 621 minutes.

After the opening burst which saw the 18-year-old draw two saves from Gianluigi Buffon, Kylian Mbappe was largely neutralised by the Juventus defence.

"My objective is for people to think it's a shame when I retire".

Monaco's players have been used to playing on the front foot, scoring 12 goals in four games against Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund in the two previous knockout rounds. "They created a couple of good chances after we took the lead, but Gigi was there to save again so there's plenty to be happy about". We have to come back in the return leg, we are in the same situation as the final eight and we know that thinking that we are qualified is the worst mistake we can make.

Although Monaco had glimpses of goal after the restart, with Falcao firing straight at Buffon, they were also their own worst enemies.

Jackson expanded on the decision to bring DeVos to campus in a letter to the community following the initial outcry. They started from the fact that there were too many students in America who did not have equal access to education.

And it was Monaco 0 and Juventus 2, with a return match billed for Turin next week Tuesday.

"It's a team that has done well not only because they are very well organised but also because they have great players".

"It definitely would be a special situation because I played in Madrid for seven years", said Higuain.

"It's not easy starting the week after a loss, but we are professionals and we need to keep working to bounce back, to get back to our best and produce the best possible performance against Bastia this Saturday", PSG's Germany star Julian Draxler told the club's website. Monaco threatened to rally in the second half before Juventus's experience took hold once more, and their right-back lofted in a flawless cross for Higuain, who did not have to break his stride as he slotted the ball beneath Subasic.
