The Brazilian right-back notched a brace of assists for Juve in their semi-final first leg against Monaco, a first in his illustrious career

Dani Alves has hit a new personal best in a single Champions League game by notching two assists for Juventus against Monaco in their Champions League semi-final first leg match Wednesday. 

For all of the Brazilian's accomplishments in his illustrious career, a multi-assist game in Europe's premier club competition had always alluded him, but two brilliant set-ups for Gonzalo Higuain broke that streak.

Alves' first assist of the night came with a clever back-heel into the path of the on-rushing striker, who found the bottom corner to open the scoring.

While that ball was brilliant, the second may have been even better, with the Brazilian playing in an inch-perfect cross for a sliding Higuain to tap home. 

The two goals were more than enough for Juventus to take a 2-0 win on the road, giving the Italian side a commanding lead heading into the semi-final second leg.
