Higuain scores as Juve top Group H

Gonzalo Higuain’s stunning strike saw Juventus finish on top of Champions League Group H as they beat Dinamo Zagreb 2-0 in Turin.

After a lifeless first half, Higuain fired Juve ahead shortly after the break before Daniele Rugani headed in a second to wrap up the victory and confirm the Bianconeri’s place as group winners.

Juve were already through to the knockout stages of the competition but needed a win or for second-placed Sevilla not to beat Lyon in order to top the group.

Lyon and Sevilla played out a 0-0 draw in France while Dinamo could finish no higher than bottom of the group.

The first half was a frustrating one for Juve manager Massimiliano Allegri, as the Serie A side attacked for most of the period but failed to create an opening against Dinamo.

Juve, looking a bit frustrated as the half wore on as Dinamo’s defence began strongly, started to take potshots from distance, but none troubled the visitors.

Claudio Marchisio, captain for the night, blazed high and wide after a lengthy spell of possession in the 19th minute before Mario Lemina pulled the trigger which missed the target by some distance.
