Italian Serie A round-up – Zlatan Ibrahimovic double wins Milan derby. Romelu Lukaku also scores for Inter Milan in derby.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic made a winning return to the AC Milan team as his quickfire double won the Milan derby, while Real Madrid and Barcelona suffered a shock defeats in La Liga.
The 39-year-old striker had missed recent games after contracting coronavirus and only resumed training this week, but scored twice early on.
Ibrahimovic put Milan in front after 13 minutes, tapping the ball in from the rebound after his penalty was saved by Samir Handanovic, and then struck again three minutes later from Rafael Leao’s cross.
In a breathless first half, Romelu Lukaku pulled one back for Inter in the 29th minute – the first Serie A goal Milan have conceded this season. Inter were awarded a penalty in the 75th minute but it was revoked for offside in the build-up.
Milan have won all four games so far and top the table with 12 points, while Inter have seven after their first defeat of the season.
Federico Chiesa was sent off on his debut for Juventus as Crotone earned their first point back in Serie A.
Napoli were 4-1 winners against Atalanta, which was only their second loss since January.
Striker Fabio Quagliarella set Sampdoria on the way to a comfortable 3-0 win at home to a disappointing Lazio.
