Higuain lands fastest double in history of the Champions League
The Argentine scored two after 8 minutes and 7 seconds and his first was the second fastest ever scored by a Juve player in the Champions League.
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.
