MN: Home goal drought continues but Ibrahimovic starting vs. Juventus was never in doubt

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan now know that they can no longer lean on Zlatan Ibrahimovic in every game but he will again be the mean to lead the line tonight against Juventus.

MilanNews writes that if the Rossoneri can give every other team in Italy a very good game and are capable of beating them on the right day, much of the credit goes to the Swedish striker because of his leadership, his superhuman qualities and of course his goals.

He hasn’t scored at San Siro since September and his performances have never been faultless, but the numbers show that he is still a decisive goal scorer for a team fighting for the title, he still commands a presence in the opponent’s area and he is a constant leader for his team-mates.

Milan will no longer be Zlatan-reliant as in the past, yet it is still important to note that he still plays a crucial role for Pioli, who will throw him into the fray against Juventus tonight in a game where tough players and quality are needed.
