Higuain hails ‘big Scudetto step’

Gonzalo Higuain felt Juventus took “a big step towards the Scudetto” with their 2-0 win at Fiorentina on Friday.

Federico Bernardeschi scored a free kick on his return to Fiorentina, before Higuain killed them off with a late finish to provisionally move Juve top of Serie A.

“It’s never easy to win here,” the striker told Sky Sport Italia.

“We didn’t have a brilliant game, but we didn’t concede either. We won and I think it’s a big step towards the Scudetto.

“Did I expect Bernardeschi’s goal? Yes, and I’m very happy for him.”

Asked about his goal by Premium Sport, he replied: “It’s always important, I’m always calm.”
