Tuttosport: Ibrahimovic transformed Milan into a goal machine – the incredible numbers

By Isak Möller -

Stefano Pioli’s Milan are certainly entertaining to watch, not only scoring goals but also conceding few. Above all, the scoring is the highlight, with a lot of goals and many different scorers.

Tuttosport (via MilanNews.it) described the team as a goal machine, backed up by the numbers: from the beginning of last season to today, Milan have scored 95 goals while conceding 56 – practically half.

The turning point came with the arrival of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. From there the mentality, the way of being on the pitch and the awareness changed. With Zlatan in the team, Milan began to score a lot and suffer less and less.

However, the real change can be seen in the post-lockdown period: 12 games played, 9 wins and no losses, but above all 35 goals scored and just 12 conceded. Ibra and Calhanoglu with 11 goals each and Ante Rebic with 12, were big contributors.

This season, Milan have continued to score a lot: four wins and one draw in the Europa League with 13 goals scored and only 5 conceded, 12 goals scored in Serie A and just 4 conceded (also in the league four hits and one draw). Ibrahimovic, amazingly, already has 6 goals.
