Gonzalo Higuain was more than happy with his strike partner for a night Paolo Dybala in the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo who was out sick.

Juventus ran out 4-0 winners of Udinese in the Coppa Italia, and all without talisman Cristiano Ronaldo.

Rather than the trident attacking force of Ronaldo, Higuain, and Dybala, coach Maurizio Sarri was left with just Higuain and Dybala.

The two Argentines linked up well together bagging three goals between them and some fantastic link-up play.

After the game according to Football Italia, Higuain was full of praise for his young strike partner.

He said:

“It’s always a pleasure to play with great talents.”

“I get along well with Dybala, it’s always a pleasure to play with great talents by my side.”
