Speaking after his side's victory, Higuain said: "Wow. That was a rollercoaster.

"They scored two goals very quickly and that shouldn't be allowed to happen. We lost control of the game and got distracted, so they managed to equalise, but fortunately in the end we still won.

"It is a very important victory. We have a lot to improve, but we gave our all on the pitch and were eventually rewarded.
