AC Milan won 2-0 against Torino when Zlatan Ibrahimovic returned on Saturday.
After eleven missed duels, the Swede once again made playing minutes for the leader in the Serie A.
39-year-old Ibrahimovic, who missed eleven matches due to a calf injury, entered the field in the 85th minute.
At that moment the 2-0 final score was already on the scoreboard thanks to a goal by Rafael Leão and a penalty kick from Franck Kessié - both goals fell before half time.
Ibrahimovic is of great value to the 'Rossoneri' this season.
Before his injury, the Swede already scored eleven hits and two assists in ten games.
Despite those fine statistics, he also missed a number of duels earlier this season because he became infected with the corona virus.
Milan is recovering with the victory of the defeat against Juventus earlier this week (1-3).
Thanks to the victory, the team of trainer Stefano Pioli has four points ahead of number two Internazionale, which will visit AS Roma on Sunday.
Earlier on Saturday, Atalanta remained unbeaten for the ninth game in a row thanks to a 1-4 win at Benevento.
Marten de Roon and Hans Hateboer played the entire game against Benevento, while Sam Lammers again stayed on the bench.
Thanks to the victory, Atalanta climbed to fourth place in the Serie A.
