Juventus midfielder Gonzalo Higuain scored the only goal in Napoli’s 2-0 victory over Juventus in their Europa League qualifier at Villa Sport on Wednesday.

Juventus had the lead through Antonio Conte’s third-minute free-kick but the Serie A side levelled through Gonzalo.

Conte’s side had been leading 4-0 at halftime, but Gonzalo was at the heart of Napoli attack and made the most of a good set-piece.

He doubled the advantage with a free-flowing run into the box before sending a deflected header wide. 

Gonzalo Higuaín scored two more goals for Napoli in a 5-0 win at Napoli on Wednesday, a 2-2 draw at Roma and a 1-1 draw with Inter Milan. 

Juventus’ 2-3 win over Roma was also a 2/3 result, with the home side’s best chance coming in the 10th minute when Conte was sent off for a late challenge on Giorgio Chiellini. 

In the second leg, Juve had to settle for a 1.5-1 aggregate scoreline.

Juve will return to the Serie B top flight on Sunday when they host Sampdoria at VillaSport.
