WATCH: Gonzalo Higuain gives Napoli 1-0 lead over Wolfsburg with fantastic finish

A delightful controlling touch and astounding finish gave Napoli a 1-0 lead early in their match against Wolfsburg.

What a pass from Dries Mertens to set this goal up, but the chested control and finish by Gonzalo Higuain to give Napoli a 1-0 lead over Wolfsburg is just incredible. He dropped it perfectly so that Ricardo Rodriguez couldn't get at it, then flicked his foot out to catch the ball on the half-volley. Just an amazing start for Napoli in a match they have to do well in, and that away goal will be huge by the time this tie is done.
