Tuttosport: Milan to lean on Ibrahimovic against Juventus – the Swede hopes to break a taboo

By Oliver Fisher -

For Zlatan Ibrahimovic, games against Juventus always carry that little bit more meaning than the average game, and Sunday’s upcoming clash is no different.

As Tuttosport (via MilanNews) writes, if anything the game holds more importance given that it is a real Champions League play-off and the most important match of the season so far. Milan and Stefano Pioli will rely on the Swedish striker who will have to haul a young Rossoneri team through a tough challenge with all his leadership.

Ibra was forced to miss the first game against Juventus in January due to a muscle problem in his calf, but this time the 39-year-old will be there to try and break the taboo of never having won or scored at the Allianz Stadium.

He returned last Saturday against Benevento and his condition may not be optimal, but already against Pippo Inzaghi’s side he showed once again that with him on the pitch it is a completely different Milan.
