The arrival of Higuain has enabled him to move back to his best position on the flank and should help him rediscover his scoring touch. His first was an ice-cool penalty, dispatched after he himself had been brought down but the second highlighted how Higuain’s role can help him out, as he ghosted in off the left and into space before rounding Lossl and passing a finish into the net.
