We expected this clash between AC Milan and AS Roma and not only because the Lombard club is having a very good start to the season in Italy. We waited for the explanation of text between the old truckers Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edin Dzeko. And we were not disappointed. The Swedish veteran opened the scoring in the second minute following a job from Leão, who fixed three opposing defenders before serving the Swede who was still on the lookout. Who to answer him for the quarter of an hour of play? Dzeko of course. The latter rose very high following a missed exit from Tatarusanu following a service from Pellegrini to equalize with a stroke of the skull. No other achievement was going to alter the scoreboard before the break, despite two playing teams and a Milanese domination not really taken advantage of by Bennacer’s teammates, which would nevertheless catch up in the second act.

Indeed, practically from the start of the second half, Leao offered a real number before making his second assist of the evening. The former Lille played on Karsdorp before feeding Saelemaekers with a low center for the 2-1. The match was going to get carried away and 20 minutes from time, Veretout equalized from the penalty spot following a foul by Bennacer on Pedro in the box. 2-2, but not for long. Indeed, six minutes later, Calhanoglu also obtained a penalty after contact with Mancini in the Roman rectangle. Who to transform it and potentially seal the fate of the meeting? Zlatan of course.
But this completely crazy meeting was going to undergo a new twist. The Giallorossi would thus pick up again with 5 minutes from the end thanks to Kumbulla, who took advantage of an error by none other than Ibrahimovic, the Milanese hero. The Swede had tried to clear an opposing corner with an acrobatic gesture, but had a hole, enough to allow the equalization of the visitors. 3-3, final score. No winner, but a lot of spectacle and a Zlatan which definitely continues to rejuvenate … The Lombards remain at the top of the standings with two points ahead of Napoli and Sassuolo.
