AC Milan suffered their first defeat of the season and thus missed the temporary jump to the top of the Italian Serie A table. The Rossoneri around Zlatan Ibrahimovic conceded a 3: 4 (0: 2) defeat at Fiorentina and are further behind the table, tied with SSC Napoli.
The front runner can pull away by three points in the top game against third-placed defending champion Inter Milan on Sunday (6 p.m.).
Ibrahimovic was on the field from the start and caused the first upset in the fifth minute. After a through pass from Brahim Diaz, the 40-year-old hit the bottom right into the net. The hit was denied because of offside. Ten minutes later it hits the AC. After a serious mistake by goalkeeper Ciprian Tatarusanu, Alfred Duncan dusted off for Florence.
Milan continued to set the pace, but the home side make it 2-0. Riccardo Saponara threw the ball into the housing worth seeing. After the break, Dusan Vlahovic increased to 3-0, before Ibrahimovic once again caused tension with a brace in the 62nd and 65th minutes. Again Vlahovic made everything clear for Fiorentina five minutes before the end with the 4: 2. The own goal by Lorenzo Venuti (90 + 6) was the final point.
After a weak start to the season, Juventus Turin is slowly picking up speed. The record champions prevailed at Lazio Rome 2-0 (1-0), with the third competitive game win in a row, the guests climbed from eighth to sixth place in the table. Defender Leonardo Bonucci scored both goals. The European champions converted a penalty in the 23rd and 83rd minute.
