Ac Milan started their Champions League campaign with a 2-0 victory against Auxerre and their new major signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic is the main actor behind that result as the Swedish striker was the one that bagged all the goals.
The Rossoneri’s new number eleven two goals lights up the San Siro crowd who were pretty disappointed with their team’s mediocre display in the first half.
Not only deciding his team’s victory against the French side, Ibrahimovic’s two goals also answers the critics that he had after failing to score on Milan’s latest league match against Cesena. On the game that was won by the newly promoted side, the Swedish striker were being slammed with unfair critics especially since he missed a penalty on that game.
Playing against Auxerre at San Siro, Milan didn’t actually performed a sparkling football especially in the first half as they doesn’t looked compact at all creating too many gap between the defense-midfield and the attack. However, the Rossoneri did tune everything a bit at the start of the second half and just after Ibra’s opening goal, the team started to play some entertaining football that awe the crowd at times.
Moreover, Ibrahimovic’s important contribution on that game also showed the thing that Milan have been missing last season, which is getting goals when everything seems difficult for them. Having only trained with his teammates it’s normal for Ibra didn’t manage to show his quality against Cesena, but with just an additional extra days the Swedish striker already proved that he can be an important player for the Rossoneri this season.
Now it would be interesting to see whether Ibra’s brace last night were just a one game action or the start of an exciting goal fest season for the Swedish striker and also Milan. Surely it would be scary to imagine if the Rossoneri’s attacking potential if they can finally click everything together as the likes of Ibrahimovic, Ronaldinho, Pato and Robinho are players with amazing quality up front.
Milan fans will also hope that the goals that he made will lift Ibra’s confidence and also his overall performance in the next upcoming matches since the fashion capital club will have plenty tiring and difficult fixtures up ahead . Should the 28-years-old striker has really discovered his goal scoring form, it would definitely make things easier for the Rossoneri that are still working on to find the right formula for their game.
