Juventus’ Gonzalo Higuain expected to be fit to face Tottenham

Gonzalo Higuain is on course to be fit to play against Tottenham in the Champions League next month.

The Juventus striker was substituted in the 15th minute of Sunday’s Turin derby, where Alex Sandro’s 33rd-minute strike clinched a 1-0 win over Torino.

Higuain scored twice in Juventus’ 2-2 draw with Tottenham last Tuesday but there were fears an ankle injury would force him to miss the second leg of their last-16 game at Wembley on March 7.
