EM – Ibrahimovic scores on both sides as Milan beat nine-man Bologna to take the lead




BOLOGNA, Italy: AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored on both sides as the guests returned to the top of the table with a 4-2 win over nine-man Bologna in Serie A on Saturday.

Milan appeared to be on a comfortable course to win after Rafael Leao scored the goal in the 16th minute before Bologna dealt another blow when Adama Soumaoro was sent off for falling by Rade Krunic four minutes later hit the gate.

Captain Davide Calabria gave Milan a 2-0 lead in the 35th minute to take control before Ibrahimovic set up his own net at the start of his first league game of the season to give the hosts hope four minutes after the break close.

Musa Barrow’s fine finish three minutes later stunned the guests when Roberto Soriano drew the red card for a ruthless duel an hour ago to leave Bologna with an even more difficult task.

They dug in and looked like they were going to take a hard-earned point, but Ismael Bennacer’s goals with six minutes left and 40-year-old Ibrahimovic’s 90th minute finish brought Milan home.

Milan’s fifth league win in Episode brought them back to the top with 25 points from nine games, one point ahead of Napoli, who will visit fourth-placed AS Roma on Sunday, while Bologna remain in ninth place.
