Ibrahimovic scores at both ends as Milan edge 9-man Bologna

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored at both ends as AC Milan beat nine-man Bologna 4-2 to go top of Serie A.

Rafael Leao notched the opener from Ibrahimovic’s ball – and Bologna had Adama Soumaoro sent off – before Davide Calabria drove home Milan’s second.

Drama then ensued when Ibrahimovic headed a corner into his own net, then Musa Barrow levelled.

Roberto Soriano was sent off for a dangerous foul and Bologna almost held out before Ismael Bennacer and Ibrahimovic scored from 20 yards to give the Rossoneri all three points.

Milan, who have won their past five league games, move one point above Napoli, who travel to Jose Mourinho’s Roma on Sunday.

Ibrahimovic, 40, becomes the fourth player to score a Serie A goal after his 40th birthday, along with Milan legend Alessandro Costacurta, 41, and 40-year-olds Silvio Piola and Pietro Vierchowod.

He also becomes the first 40-year-old to set up a Serie A goal since Francesco Totti in February 2017.
