Watch: Exquisite Gonzalo Higuain Pass Sets Milan Up For Late, Late Win

After last weekend's 3-2 defeat to Napoli, AC Milan looked set to have thrown away more much-needed points at home to Roma tonight. That is, until Gonzalo Higuain showed a little bit of magic with a delightful 95th minute assist.

2-0 ahead in Naples before Carlo Ancelotti's side flipped the script and claimed a priceless win, Milan took the lead tonight through Franck Kessie just before half-time.

Despite a poor first-half performance, however, Roma equalised shortly after the second-half began in the San Siro.

Denied once after his goal was ruled out on the hour mark, Higuain showed tremendous composure late on to give his side a deserving victory.

Pressing Roma late on, a short pass out of defence found its way to the foot of the former Juventus striker. Taking the time to assess his surroundings, Higuain slipped a wonderful pass through to Patrick Cutrone.

Brought on only 10 minutes earlier, Cutrone finished the opportunity expertly, sending the Milan fans home happy.
