Ibrahimovic performed brilliantly when AC Milan met Venezia at the Stadio Pierluigi Penzo in Serie A, Sunday (9/1/2022). In the duel that ended with the score 3-0, Ibra scored the opening goal when the game had only lasted 2 minutes. While the other two goals were scored by Theo Hernandez.
Throughout this season, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has scored 8 goals for AC Milan. The goal against Venice was also the 40-year-old’s first goal with the Rossoneri.
Ibrahimovic’s goal against Venezia also not only helped AC Milan pick 3 points over his opponent. The goal was also a new milestone for Ibrakadabra’s professional career. As reported by AS, thanks to that quick goal, Ibra also matched the new achievements of Cristiano Ronaldo.
Matching Ronaldo’s Record
Ibra became the second player after Ronaldo who was able to break into 80 different teams. Ibracadabra’s acumen has been tested in the Premier League, Bundesliga, Serie A, LaLiga, and Ligue 1.
According to Opta’s records, Ibra has now equaled the record set by Ronaldo while playing for Manchester United against Burnley last month. In this match, the Portuguese player also managed to contribute one goal for the Red Devils’ 3-1 victory over Burnley.
Thanks to the score, Ronaldo managed to break the record that had lasted since 2000.
Never Barren Since 1999
Apart from equaling Ronaldo’s record, Ibrahimovic also deserves to be proud. Because the goal against Venezia further emphasized his sharpness as a striker who has always scored goals in every season since 1999 when he first scored against the opponent in his debut with Malmo.
