Olivier Giroud picked up where he left off when he started the match against Bologna on Saturday night but is ready for the challenge from Divock Origi, a report suggests.
As has been said in an article from Corriere dello Sport (via Milan News), the French forward showed that his form has not been affected by the injury that kept him out of the starting lineup for the first two games of the new Serie A season.
As he pointed out in an interview after the game, this was the first time he had played a full match since the friendly against Marseille four weeks ago.
The goal was very well taken by the Frenchman who latched onto a delicate pass from Rafael Leao and volleyed past Lukasz Skorupski.
The next battle for Giroud is to fend off Origi when he is up to full fitness as he will want to start in the same position.
