The great performance of the Swedish striker allowed the rossonero team to add three and climb to fifth place in the Serie A table.
Milan continues to rise positions in the A series by the hand of his highest figure, Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The rossonero team climbed to the fifth position in the table – and qualified for the next Europa League– thanks to a double from the Swedish striker for the 2-1 end in the match before Sassuolo at MAPEI Stadium – Città del Tricolore.
Stefano Pioli’s team has been one of the best teams since football returned to Italy and proved it this Tuesday, beating a Sassuolo who still had a chance of getting into European positions.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic opened the scoring with a great header after a cross from the right. And then, after Caputo’s penalty tie, the Swede, who arrived in Milan at the beginning of the year after passing through the MLS LA Galaxy, put his team ahead again with a nice definition after facing the goalkeeper.
Thus, Milan accumulated its third consecutive victory in the tournament and was in fifth place, which gives the direct place to the next Europa League.
In Milan, the Argentine Lucas Biglia and the Uruguayan Diego Laxalt entered the complement.
