Gonzalo Higuain scores 200th club goal, gives Napoli lead over Udinese

A lead and a milestone all in one kick. Not bad, Pipita.

Gonzalo Higuain came into this match against Udinese wanting to help Napoli win, but also chasing a huge personal milestone, wanting his 200th career club goal. In the second half, he got his goal, and gave Napoli a 1-0 lead in the process.

Higuain had struggled to get that goal in the first half, getting four shots away, but only one on target -- and missing the target by about four total feet on his other three shots. Now he's got his milestone moment, though, and Napoli are on their way to what will hopefully end as another all-important win.
