The Swede came to 50 (and later 51) for Milan with his goal against Sampdoria on Wednesday evening. He left the city rival, for which he played years ago, after 57 hits. Furthermore, Ibrahimovic is now the fifth footballer who has been successful 50 times for Milan in this century in Serie A. Andrei Shevchenko (117), Kaká (77), Filippo Inzaghi (73) and Alexandre Pato (51) preceded him.
In Genoa it eventually became 4-1 for the Milanese, who still have a chance of direct placement for the Europa League because of the win. Ibrahimovic made the 1-0 and 3-0 and prepared the 2-0 – by Hakan Çalhanoglu – beautifully.
At 3-0, Gonzalo Maroni of Sampdoria missed a penalty. The young Noor Kristoffer Askildsen scored with a beautiful shot from a distance for the home club. In extra time, Rafael Leão made it 4-1.
