Gonzalo Higuain Bleeds From His Head After Brutal Collision With Lecce Keeper During Juventus Draw

 Higuain was totally flattened by the blow

Gonzalo Higuain had to be stretchered off despite playing on in Juventus’ draw with Lecce after a nasty blow to the head.

As the Serie A leaders chased a winner at Stadio Comunale Via del Mare, he collided with Brazilian keeper Gabriel.

Pictures show how blood immediately poured out of a cut on Higuain’s  forehead as physios attended to him.

A huge bandage was wrapped around the striker’s head before he amazingly played on.

But there will be big questions over why he was allowed to do so after he required a stretcher to leave the pitch at full-time.

Higuain, 31, did not appear to be knocked out by the blow but could have been concussed to some extent.

After the 1-1 draw, it was confirmed he was taken to hospital for checks.

The incident provided Juventus  with seven minutes of stoppage time to try and find a winner but left Lecce with just a point.

It was a tale of two penalties with Marco Mancosu levelling up after Paulo Dybala’s spot-kick.

Cristiano Ronald was rested for the game by Maurizio Sarri.

And the Old Lady will lose their lead atop Serie A later on Saturday if Inter Milan claim victory at home to Parma.
