Higuain was dropped for the derby rout on Saturday of Torino.
Matuidi said, “Higuain, like every forward, needs to score but it's part of every player's career to have moments in which they score less.
“He will definitely score a lot this year and help us achieve our aims."
On Paulo Dybala, he added: “Dybala is a great player, one of the best in the world. We are lucky to have such an exceptional teammate.
“Hopefully he can carry on in this way."
