Zlatan Ibrahimovic smashed the record for the oldest goalscorer in Serie A history on Saturday night – yet AC Milan didn’t have much to celebrate. The “Rossoneri” lost 3-1 away to Udinese Calcio on matchday 27.
After just a few minutes, Roberto Pereyra gave the home side the lead (10′). Ibrahimovic approaches the equalizer with a free kick, and Rafael Leao is close to 1-1 just before the break.
In the end it is Ibrahimovic who compensates with a hand penalty. It is a special goal for the Swede, at 41 years and 166 days he replaces Alessandro Costacurta, who also scored for Milan in May 2007 at the age of 41 years and 25 days, as the oldest goalscorer in league history (45+ 3.).
However, Udinese hit back before the break: Beto put the Udine club back 2-1 after a pass from Isaac Success. Milan will not be able to get to it later. In the final phase, the hosts finally pull away with another goal from Kingsley Ehizibue (70th).
Milan have now been waiting for a win for three league games. The “Rossoneri” are fourth in the table with 48 points. Udinese is getting closer to the European Cup ranks again, is eighth with 38 points.
