Serie A: Ibrahimovic’s late bicycle kick does it for AC Milan

Italian side AC Milan secured three points and top spot thanks to a late acrobatic goal by Zlatan Ibrahimovic in their 2-1 win over Udinese on Sunday.

The Swedish star set up Franck Kessie for the opener after 18 minutes before De Paul pulled Udinese level three minutes after the break from the penalty spot, beating Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma on his return from coronavirus.

But Ibrahimovic snatched the three points seven minutes from time acrobatically beating Udinese defenders Rodrigo Becao and Sebastian De Maio, to beat goalkeeper Juan Musso with a close overhead kick.

The 39-year-old has scored seven goals in four league games played having missed the other two after contracting coronavirus.

Stefano Pioli’s side is top of the table with 16 points from six games, four points ahead of Atalanta.

AC Milan extended their unbeaten run to 24 consecutive matches since the competition return in June after the coronavirus lockdown.

Udinese are in the relegation zone after their fifth defeat this season.
