Having become one of the teams of the season in Serie A, and still unbeaten in the domestic competition, Milan hosted Roma today on the pitch of Giuseppe Meazza with the clear intention of continuing to put ground between the rest of the protagonists in the race for Scudetto.
With a game that little or nothing resembles the bastard exhibited earlier last year, the rossoneros they seem like others. And much of the blame lies with Sweden’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who despite his 39 years continues to prove at every game that he is one of the best strikers of the past three decades. It was the Nordic giant who opened the scoring at minute 2 of the match, taking advantage of an assist from Rafael Leao (1-0). So, there are already five goals that Ibrahimovic amasses to date in the domestic competition.
And when you talk about scorers, you have to do with Edin Dzeko too. After a summer full of rumors in which his departure at Juventus seemed sung and in the end it did not happen, it was the Bosnian who drew at 14. Even if it is not Ibrahimovic’s 39, we must not forget that the former Wolfsburg and Manchester City already blew 34 candles last March.
All right on the break

A game with goals … and controversy
With 1-1 at half-time, Milan still took very little time to see the goal after exiting the dressing room tunnel. Two more minutes. This was the time it took for the 21-year-old Belgian talent to score Alexis Saelemaekers, whose birth coincides in time (1999) with Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s debut in professional football with Malmö. However, and as happened also in the first half, Roma overtook to rebalance the electronics. It was through a Jordan Veretout who didn’t miss from the spot in the 70th minute to make it 2-2.
He did it with an absurd penalty that was highly requested by the Rossoneri after it was Pedro who stepped on Bennacer. However, there was no consultation with the VAR and the maximum penalty was a fact. Equally controversial was the bet in favor of the locals a few minutes later for an action on Calhanoglu. Zlatan Ibrahimovic (79 ‘) didn’t miss the chance and scored his sixth Serie A goal of the season for a 3-2 draw.
It seemed that the Lombards were finally about to take the three points up for grabs and shoot even more in the front row. However, it wasn’t. And is that Marash Kumbulla appeared in the minute to put the tables (3-3) and leaving a real game closed that was a pleasure for the spectator.
