A leagueAC Milan went 3-1 on the field of Udinese. A pale Saelemaekers was replaced just after the hour mark. De Ketelaere and Origi were allowed to attack for a good quarter of an hour, but could not continue.
In September, Udinese won 3-1 against Romelu Lukaku’s Inter and they were also at the appointment against city rivals AC Milan, where Saelemaekers kicked off. Udinese got off to a good start and took the lead through captain Pereyra.
On the stroke of half-time, Milan came alongside against the course of the game. Ibrahimovic first missed his eleven-meter mark, but because Silvestri came off his line too early, he was allowed to try again. At the second attempt, the 41-year-old Swede remained calm and kicked the equalizer hard against the ropes. With that goal, Ibrahimovic became the oldest goalscorer ever in Serie A.
Unfortunately, it was to no avail, because barely a few minutes later Beto made it 2-1 and in the second period Ehizibue did the books completely. De Ketelaere and Origi were allowed to come in for another fifteen minutes, but they could not turn the tide either. Milan lags behind with a poor 1 in 9 and after the international break looks leader Napoli in the eye without confidence.
