Swedish superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic is on his way back from his latest knee injury. The 41-year-old has jumped into the last three league games – but tonight he'll get the chance from the get-go.
It is the first time since January 23, 2022 that Ibrahimovic has started a match.
He leads Milan as captain in the away game against Udinese.
And it was Udinese who took the lead in the match. Just before the break, Milan had the chance to equalise from the penalty spot, after a hand situation. Ibrahimovic stepped forward, with a shot went low to the left and it was saved by the goalkeeper. But it didn't stop there.
The penalty was overturned, as Udinese players were inside the penalty area too early. On the second try, Ibrahimovic went on power and put it on. That makes him Serie A's oldest ever goalscorer (41 years and 166 days) and on top of that, it was his first goal since last January.
