Ibrahimovic equals Serie A record

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has become only the fourth player to score in each of his first six Serie A games of the season in the three points for a win era.

The 39-year-old Swede got his head to a Theo Hernandez cross to give Milan the half-time lead away to Napoli this evening.

Simply beating Alex Meret into the far bottom corner allowed him to equal a remarkable record.

In the era of three points for a win, only three players had previously managed to find the net in each of their first six Serie A appearances of the season.

They were Gabriel Batistuta for Fiorentina in 1994-95, Christian Vieri at Inter in 2002-03 and Genoa’s Krzysztof Piatek in 2018-19.

It also allowed Ibra to go back to the top of the Capocannoniere charts, having been caught by Cristiano Ronaldo on eight this weekend.
