Sami Khedira and Gonzalo Higuain were celebrated for their heroics in the colours of Italian club Juventus. Italian media outlet Juvefc posted a throwback video on January 29 to celebrate the fifth year anniversary of the 2-0win over home team Sassuolo in the league as recently retired German midfielder Sami Khedira and Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain were celebrated for hitting the back of the net during the Serie A game.



The said Italian Serie A game between hosts Sassuolo and Juventus was held at the Mapei Stadium. Juventus scored an early goal in the game on the way to an impressive away through Higuain also known as El Pipita. Higuain scored from close range after Brazilian left-back Alex Sandro provided the cross for him having been released by Croatian star Mario Mandzukic on the left flank.

El Pipita was also involved in the build-up to the second Juventus goal scored by Sami Khedira. He played a pass towards strike partner and compatriot Paulo Dybala who fooled the Sassuolo defenders via a dummy to strike the ball home for the second Juventus goal.

Juventus had several chances to add to their two goals, but they were unable to take them, while veteran shot stopper Gianlugi Buffon also had to work for his clean sheet in the Old Lady goal. Italian football icon Buffon showed his quality during the game with a sensational double save to deny Alessandro Matri and Matteo Politano.

On the balance of player, Juventus fully deserved the win. They were the defending champions as far as the Italian Serie A was concerned during the 2016/17 season and they went on to retain the title at the end of the season under the focus. The Old Lady were the team to beat in the Italian Serie A for a decade until their dominance ended last season thanks to the emergence of Inter Milan as the new champions.
