Gonzalo Higuaín made history on Tuesday night in the Champions League. The Argentine wasted no time getting involved in Juventus' game against Spurs on Wednesday night. He landed a double in the quickest time ever in the Champions League by hitting the back of the net twice in 8 minutes and 7 seconds.
Mr. Chip confirmed it as a new record. He beats out Julio Ricardo Cruz, the previous record holder, who scored two after 8 minutes and 30 seconds against Spartak Moscow in 2006 for Inter Milan. 'Pipa' could have added a third, which would have been his first hat-trick in the competition but he crashed his penalty off the top of the crossbar.
He also came close to breaking a Juventus record with the quickest goal ever in the Champions League but Alessandro Del Piero has him beat with his 20-second striker against Manchester United in 1997. Higuain's first came after 73.
