The return of King Ibrahimovic

A double from the Swede gave Milan a solid 2-0 win at Cagliari, who have not been victorious for eleven games. The rossoneros are still leaders.


A double by Swede Zlatan Ibrahimovic gave Milan a solid 2-0 victory on Monday at Cagliari, which has not been victorious for eleven games, and returned them to the solo lead in the Italian Serie A.

With an eleven plagued by absences, without the French Theo Hernández nor the Turkish Hakan Calhanoglu, both positive for coronavirus, nor the Portuguese Rafael Leao, sanctioned, Milan decisively resolved the visit to the Sardinia Arena and took an advantage of three points over Inter Milan, second.

He got back on track after just seven minutes, when Ibrahimovic was brought down in the area after receiving an assist from Spaniard Brahim Díaz. It was the Swede himself in charge of transforming the 1-0 penalty.

After a shot to the post by Davide Calabria in the first half, Milan sentenced the match again at the hand of Ibrahimovic in the 52nd, who reached twelve goals in this league campaign. He was able to celebrate his goal after a VAR control, as the linesman had initially scored offside.

Of course, the "rossoneri" were outnumbered in 74 for a naive double warning to Belgian Alexis Saelemaekers, who had jumped onto the field just eight minutes earlier.

It was an important triumph for Pioli's men, who had been momentarily overtaken by Inter after Inter's victory against Juventus.

In the next matchday, Milan will have a difficult match against Atalanta while Inter will visit Udinese.
