AC Milan piles pressure on Juventus

Nov, 23rd 2020 – Juventus will this season have a run for their money in Serie A with AC Milan, Roma and Inter Milan continuing to pile pressure on top of the table.

Milan remain top of the table after Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored twice to register a 3-1 victory away at Napoli.

The 39-year-old now has 10 goals in six league games this season, but left the field with what looked like a hamstring injury in the second half.

He gave Milan the lead with a header from the edge of the box before turning in an Ante Rebic cross after the break.

Dries Mertens pulled one back for Napoli just after the hour mark.

But on-loan Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko was sent off for the hosts two minutes later.

Norway winger Jens Petter Hauge wrapped up the win for Milan in added time with his first Serie A goal to maintain the leaders’ unbeaten start.

Sassuolo are second on the table and Roma third after eight rounds of matches . Juventus are fourth with 16 points ,four behind the leaders AC Milan. Inter Milan are 5th just a point behind the defending champions.
