Higuain: ‘We have to come out fighting against Barcelona’

April 17, 2017

Gonzalo Higuain believes Juve have to play as they did in Turin and “come out fighting” against Barcelona at the Camp Nou.

The striker spoke to JTV ahead of the second-leg Champions League tie on Wednesday and shared his thoughts on the season so far.

“I’m very satisfied about how the season is going. There’s still just over a month left and we want to go all the way in each competition.”

“This is a crucial moment in our league campaign. It’s not over yet and we’ve 18 points to play for so we can’t take our foot off the gas.

“With each game, however, we’re getting closer and closer to that sixth straight Scudetto we all want so much. We’re in the driving seat.

Juve take a 3-0 lead to Spain when they face Barcelona, but is it enough to progress to the semi-finals?

“I don’t know whether our 3-0 lead will be enough. We have to come out fighting at the Camp Nou and play like we did in the first leg in Turin.

“Barcelona showed against PSG that they’re capable of producing miracles, so we have to be on our toes.

“They’ll be wary of us too, however. We’ll be looking to create opportunities to score and we’re certain that we have what it takes to reach the next round.”

Higuain also spoke about Coach Max Allegri and his input this season.

“For Allegri, all matches are of the utmost importance. He prepares for them in the same way and this allows us to make sure we’re at the races for every single one of them. This is the secret for competing properly on all fronts.”
