Juve goal: Gonzalo Higuain 14’
Juventus superstar striker Gonzalo Higuaín punished rival Roma to send Juventus seven points clear of Roma on the Serie A Table. Juventus tops the Italian Serie A Table with 42 points going into the Christmas holidays after Round 17. Roma are in second with 35 points, Napoli and Lazio have 34 points apiece. Argentinian Gonzalo Higuaín struck home in the 14th minute to give the Serie A leaders Juve a 1-0 victory against Roma in a tense top-of-the-table clash which put them seven points clear on Saturday. The goal was Higuain’s 10th of the season, his 3rd in the past 2 games. Juve celebrated their 25th consecutive home Serie A win that put them on track for a 6th consecutive Serie A trophy. With one match to go before the Christmas break, Juventus have 42 points from 17 games, followed by Roma on 35, and Milan on 33 after they were held 0-0 at home by Atalanta.
Roma have been Serie A league runners-up to Juventus twice in the last three seasons. An early shot was saved by Wojciech Szczesny before Higuain opened the scoring for Juve when the former Napoli and Real Madrid player received a pass 30 metres from goal, then got past Daniele De Rossi and Kostas Manolos to deliver a left-foot shot on target. Roma had only three shots on target and no goals due to Juve’s strong defense. Higuaín enraged fans, teammates, and Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri when he left Napoli and Sarri to join Juventus during the 2016 summer transfer window. Higuaín’s summer move to Napoli’s arch-rival Juve was motivated by a desire for silverware. Reportedly he still felt a deep affection for fans in Naples.
“Core ‘ngrato” or “ungrateful heart” was said about the South American striker who left Napoli for Juventus, and who subsequently scored against his old manager and team in a crucial match that may prove to be the title decider. “He is still a son to me,” said Sarri. “But his transfer to Juventus did hurt me a lot. I still feel a great deal of affection towards him, and I think 10 years from now we’ll get back in touch.” After thie loss to Juve, Roma’s head coach Luciano Spalletti reportedly said that he may leave the club in the summer if he fails to lead them to the Serie A title following on from a 1-0 defeat to Juventus. "If I cannot win, I'm leaving." Spalletti's contract is due to expire at the end of the 2016-17 season.
