Gonzalo Higuain, one of the most highlighted strikers in the planet, is renowned for his consistence goal scoring ability. Higuain is a very dangerous striker who knows how to score, very well. Recently he moved to the Serie-A champion side Juventus from Napoli for €90 million (£75.3 million). Many of the haters questioned about Juve’s big move for him whether that was a wise move or not. But they might have got their answers already as the Argentine has been consistent since joining the Serie-A giants.
On the Saturday night, Serie-A table toppers Juventus and Roma met in an important Italian league clash at the Juventus Stadium. Gonzalo Higuain once again proved him as the most valuable player on the pitch as he scored the only goal of the game to beat the A.S. Roma side. The 29 years old striker showed brilliant personal display and beat Wojciech Szczesny to net the ball on the 14th minute of the game. The decider of the match was assisted by a Sami Khedira pass.
It was 10th goal of the season in the Serie-A for the Argentina international. He is the 4th highest goal scorer in the league in this ongoing season just after Mauro Icardi, Edin Dzeko and Andrea Belotti. The former Real Madrid forward has played 1159 minutes so far this season and has taken only 116 minutes to score per goal. It is totally the goal number 13 after just 22 appearances for the Juventus talisman.
Last season the 29 years old attacker netted 38 goals for Napoli in 42 outings before heading to the Turin based club. He has featured in 145 matches for Napoli and managed to score 89 times in his 3 seasons with the Naples based club. The poacher has played for 7 seasons for Real Madrid. He has featured in 255 matches for the Los Blancos and netted no less than 118 times.
Juventus are chasing their 6th consecutive league titles and Higuain’s important strike against Roma has made their place stronger at the top of the table. The Bianconeris are now clear 7 points ahead than their nearest opponent Roma after that win. The Zebras are also the most successful club in Italian club football’s history and if they manage to win it this time, it will be their 33rd league title. Juventus is currently topping the table with 42 points after the first 17 league matches. Roma is in the 2nd position with 35 points from the same number of games. So it seems that the record signing in the Serie-A history is leading Juventus to another league title.
