MN: Ibrahimovic fired up to face old club Juventus and end home scoring drought

By Oliver Fisher -

Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be looking to get his name back on the famous San Siro scoreboard during Sunday’s game against Juventus, given that it hasn’t been up there since mid-September.

MilanNews writes how Ibrahimovic’s 2021-22 season has so far been characterised by ups and downs with injuries, missed penalties, crucial games that he was forced to skip and struggles at home, yet he still has 8 goals across Serie A and Champions League despite playing a total of just 1,040 minutes.

The Swede is an added value for the squad at all times but especially in this decisive period of the season, in which the Rossoneri will face Juventus and Inter – their two biggest rivals – in what is a stretch that will likely give a big indication as to whether a Scudetto challenge is on.

The loss against Spezia was a bitter one to take but again Ibrahimovic showed all his experience, because rather than letting rage consume him after Marco Serra’s error he was among the first to console the referee in the dressing room.

Of his 8 goals, 7 have come away from home and the only goal at San Siro was his first of the season in the 2-0 victory against Lazio on 12 September 2021. The match against Juventus – the team that brought him to Italy in the summer of 2004 – could be the right occasion to end the drought.
