Juventus 2-goal Gonzalo Higuain: Victory at Atalanta about maturity

Juventus' two-goal Gonzalo Higuain was happy to deflect the praise after victory at Torino.

Musa Barrow had missed a penalty before Robin Gosens nodded in the opener, but Higuain hit a brace before Paulo Dybala sealed it in stoppages.

“We knew this was going to be an extremely complicated match, as Atalanta are so strong at home and they had taken the lead, along with missing a penalty," Pipita told Sky Sport Italia.

“It was a performance of great maturity and three important points in the Scudetto race. Paulo and I are very happy with our goals, but the whole team did well and it was a heck of a performance from the defence.

“Now we have a couple of days to rest and prepare for the Champions League."
