Gonzalo Higuain was the one who scored both goals for Juventus in their 2-0 at Monaco, the whole Italian side played a magnificent game, but the Bianconeri coach and his Monaco counterpart had no doubt who had been more influential than anyone else on the field;
We had three chances and didn’t score. They had three chances and scored two goals. Buffon made two or three fantastic saves, and it’s because of him that we didn’t score
Leonardo Jardim said in the Press conference after the game, having seen his team fail to find the back of the net, and concede two goals, a result that leaves them with a mountain to climb in the return leg in Turin.
Gigi Buffon’s top performance almost goes without saying when it comes to these big matches. Gigi is the best goalkeeper in the world and he has shown that in this game. The best players step up on nights like this
Massimiliano Allegri commented.
Monaco are a good side, a technically gifted side, but we started well. It was beginning to look easy, but we made a few mistakes and Gigi produced a great save at 0-0. They created a couple of good chances after we took the lead, but Gigi was there to save again so there is plenty to be happy about
the Juventus coach said.
