GdS: Giroud’s 8 goals earn Milan 9 points – another big performance is needed

By Oliver Fisher -

It will once again be up to Olivier Giroud to lead the lead tonight as AC Milan host Empoli in another crucial game in the race for the title.

As written by La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews), Giroud is now one of the pillars of Pioli’s Milan as he is a decisive player both on the pitch and in the locker room. He suffered a nasty cut to the ankle and a slight sprain against Napoli last Sunday, but he managed to be decisive and got the winner.

No striker among the teams fighting for the Scudetto has had as much impact as the Frenchman as his 8 goals in Serie A have earned the team 9 points. He only scores decisive goals, and he will be called upon to do the same tonight.

Giroud was a real bargain and with Zlatan Ibrahimovic back to full fitness too, Pioli has two champion strikers to call upon. He seized his chance at Milan and San Siro expects other evenings to remember.
