Zlatan Ibrahimovic scores on return as AC Milan see off Lazio


Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored on his return after four months out as AC Milan claimed a convincing 2-0 victory over Lazio at the San Siro.

Enjoying territorial advantage in the first half, they did not make it pay until the 45th minute when Rafael Leao ran 40 yards, then played the ball wide to Ante Rebic, received a square ball back and slid home for the opener.

Franck Kessie should have doubled the lead on the stroke of half-time when he was brought down by Ciro Immobile after a corner, but clipped the ensuing penalty against the crossbar.

Ibrahimovic was introduced in place of Leao on the hour mark, meaning Rebic moved to the left flank and he brilliantly set up a tap-in for the Swedish legend eight minutes later.

Both teams came into the match with unbeaten records but it is Milan who go top of the table, above Napoli on goal difference.
