Zlatan Ibrahimovic was at the double in Milan’s victory at Gennaro Gattuso’s Napoli.
Milan star Zlatan Ibrahimovic became the oldest player to score at least 10 goals in the first eight Serie A matchdays on Sunday.
The 39-year-old powered a bullet header into the bottom corner in the first half before bundling in his second of the night after the break to take his league-high tally to 10 goals in six games this season.
Ibrahimovic opened the scoring with a stunning header in the 20th minute.
He doubled the lead nine minutes into the second half, getting on the end of Ante Rebic’s cross before hobbling off with an apparent hamstring injury.
Dries Mertens pulled one back for the home side to give them hope, but a clumsy challenge by Tiemoue Bakayoko earned the Napoli midfielder a second yellow card with 25 minutes left on the clock and Jens Petter Hauge eventually notched Milan’s third in stoppage time.
Jens Petter Hauge scored late in the stoppage extra time to make it 3-1.
With the victory, unbeaten Milan retain top spot on 20 points, two clear of Sassuolo in second and six ahead of sixth-placed Napoli.
In other match, Romelu Lukaku scored twice as Inter Milan completed a thrilling second half comeback from two goals down to beat Torino 4-2 in Serie A on Sunday, ending a four-match winless run in all competitions.
