Gonzalo Higuain scored one goal and set up another, with Cristiano Ronaldo also getting on the scoresheet as Juventus beat Bayer Leverkusen 3-0 in the Champions League on Tuesday.

It was an encouraging performance for the Bianconeri after squandering a two-goal lead in a draw at Atletico Madrid to open the group phase.

Higuain scored early on and then set up Federico Bernardeschi's goal after the break before Ronaldo added the third in the 89th.
