FT: AS Monaco 0-2 Juventus

Two superb finishes from Gonzalo Higuain in either half have given Juventus the advantage going into the second leg, as Monaco failed to make the most of their home leg. The tie seems all but over, as the French side will need to put 3 past Juventus' famed backline in Turin - a seemingly impossible task this season.
...
90+2' Monaco have the ball in their possession but are taking their time going forward. The move ends with a wasteful cross straight in Buffon's arms.
...
90' 3 minutes of injury time
...
90' WHAT A SAVE!!! Moutinho sends in another superb cross from a free-kick on the right. It lands right on Germain's head and he powers a header that looks destined for the net only for Buffon to deny him with a great reflex save!
...
89' Miralem Pjanic comes off to be replaced by Mario Lemina for Juventus
...
88' CLOSE! Moutinho swings in a devilish ball from the set-piece, but it narrowly evades everyone in the box, with even the legendary Buffon panicking!
...
87' Rincon concedes a foolish foul on Moutinho, and Monaco have a free-kick in a promising position on the right.
...
84' It's all Monaco at the moment as Juventus recede into their own half and are content to allow the hosts to have the ball. They are reduced to ambitious long balls, with the Italian defence dealing easily with them.
...
81' Tomas Rincon replaces Claudio Marchisio for Juventus, while Almamy Toure comes on to replace Bernardo Silva for Monaco
...
81' OOOH! Dirar sends in a low cross into the corridor of uncertainty and Chiellini makes a horrible mistake while clearing it, but breathes a sigh of relief as the ball flashes past Falcao who was lurking behind him.
...
79' OOOF! Falcao wrongfoots Chiellini while collecting a cross from the right in the box, turns and shoots, but the referee pulls play back for a handball by the Colombian.
...
76' Gonzalo Higuain comes off to a standing ovation from the away fans, with Juan Cuadrado coming on to replace him. Mario Mandzukic will move into the centre now.
...
75' WHAT A CHANCE! Moutinho chips a gorgeous ball over the Juventus backline and Bernardo Silva runs on to it, but Bonucci gets back to block his shot and snuff out the danger.
...
74' The hosts get down the right wing yet again, with Fabinho sending a low cross into the box from the byline right at Falcao's feet, but a poor first touch allows Pjanic to nip the ball off his feet and clear the danger.
...
73' WHAT A WASTE!  Juventus are outnumbered as Monaco counter-attack with Fabinho. He spreads it out wide to Germain on the right, but the substitute miscues his cross to the far post Mbappe lurking in space. 
...
70' SHOT! Dirar does well to get past Alex Sandro and send in a cross from the byline, although the ball falls to Jemerson and he responds with a centre-backs finish, is all I will say about that 'shot'.
...
69' Chiellini goes into the book for blocking Falcao with an elbow to face. Naughty.
...
67' Valere Germain and Joao Moutinho come on to replace Thomas Lemar and Tiemoue Bakayoko for AS Monaco
...
65' Monaco make a mess of their free-kick and Juventus nearly make them pay. Dybala sends in a peach of a diagonal to send Dani Alves through with Sidibe dawdling, but Bakayoko gets back to bail his teammate out.
...
62' Monaco look crestfallen at the moment - conceding two away goals puts them at a severe disadvantage, even if they manage to come back tonight!
...
Higuaín scores a brace for the second time in the UCL, after two goals for Napoli against Olympique Marseille on 6 November 2013.
...
59' Dani Alves wins the ball off of Bakayoko and sends Dybala charging upfield before receiving the ball back. He floats a beautiful ball to Higuain at the far post, and the Argentine striker reads it brilliantly to respond with a neat finish and double Juve's lead! AS Monaco 0-2 Juventus!
...
59' GOOOOAL GONZALOOO HIGUAIIIN!!!
...
58' Claudio Marchisio goes into the book for a foolish kick out at Fabinho as he began a foray forward for Monaco
...
56' NEARLY!! Dirar sends in a peach of a cross from the right wing, and Mbappe dashes to the near post to apply a finishing touch but the ball flashes past the box before he can get a touch.
...
54' WHAT A SAVE! Mandzukic wins the ball of Fabinho in Monaco's half and bears down on goal from the right wing. The Croat hammers a low drive across goal, only for Subasic to get down well to make the save.
...
53' Boos ring out as Mbappe falls dramatically to the floor after a challenge with Dani Alves, but the referee isn't conned. Monaco do have a corner though, but both of Lemar's deliveries into the box are cleared,
...
51' Buffon is livid with his defenders as they allow Bernardo Silva all the time and space to hammer a low drive from range. It's not much of a problem for the Juve keeper as he positions himself well to collect it.
...
49' NEARLY! Lemar sends a through ball to Mbappe running through into the box on the left, but Buffon reads the play well to get to the ball a millisecond before the teenager. A lovely moment as Gigi pats the teenager on the head after that...
...
47' CHANCE! Pjanic makes a mess of a ball forward, and Bernardo Silva collects it before threading a clever pass to Falcao in the box. The Colombian tries to curl the ball past Buffon with the instep of his right foot, but the Juventus legend gets down well to make the save!
...
46' SUPERB FROM MBAPPE! He dashes down the left wing and gets past Pjanic and Barzagli with some deliciously quick, skillful feet, but his low cross into the box is cleared.
...
46' AND WE'RE OFF! AS Monaco get us underway in the second half, kicking off from left to right in their red and white kits!
...
The players have exited the tunnel - kickoff in the second half is up next!
...
Kickoff in the second half is minutes away - how will AS Monaco react now as they chase the game? Will Juventus hold out for a crucial away win? We'll have our answer in the next 45 minutes!
...
HT: AS Monaco 0-1 Juventus
...
44' AS Monaco have dominated most of the ball in the last few minutes, but have not been able to trouble Juventus, who are maintaining their defensive shape extremely well.
...
41' Higuain is livid with the referee as he blows for a foul in Juve's half as he challenged Fabinho for a corner. Monaco catch out Juve quickly and take it short, but Lemar's ball in is cleared with ease.
...
40' Boos ring out at the Stade Louis II as Mbappe trips in the box but the referee waves play on, and instead blows for a foul on Mandzukic as Juventus clear. Clearly not a penalty, though.
...
38' Dybala gets the ball up and over the wall, but Subasic reads the Argentine striker's shot well, and collects the ball at the post.
...
37' Fabinho goes into the book for a late challenge from behind on Dybala. A promising position for Juventus to have a strike on goal, with Dybala and Pjanic lining up....
