Ibrahimovic scores again as Milan stay top

·3-min read

Zlatan Ibrahimovic remains unstoppable and AC Milan remain unbeaten at the top of the Serie A.

The 39-year-old Ibrahimovic scored twice - his fourth brace this season - to raise his total to 10 goals in six games as Milan won 3-1 at Napoli on Sunday.

However, there was concern for Ibrahimovic when he exited toward the end clutching his hamstring.

The Swedish superstar has already missed two games this season after contracting the coronavirus.

The Rossoneri again moved two points ahead of Sassuolo, who won 2-0 at Hellas Verona earlier in the day to also remain undefeated through eight rounds.

Ibrahimovic soared to head home a cross from Theo Hernandez midway through the first half.

After Giovanni Di Lorenzo hit the crossbar for Napoli, Ibrahimovic used his thigh to steer in another goal near the hour mark.

Dries Mertens pulled one back for Napoli less than 10 minutes later from close range.

But Napoli's comeback quickly lost steam when Tiemoue Bakayoko was sent off when he received his second yellow card for a foul on Hernandez.

Jens Petter Hauge added another goal for Milan five minutes into stoppage time, from a tight angle.

For Napoli coach Gennaro Gattuso, losing to the team he played with and coached for before joining Napoli had to hurt.

Milan were without head coach Stefano Pioli, who has coronavirus.

It is only Sassuolo's eighth season in the Italian top flight and they have never finished higher than sixth.

But a Champions League spot is now in site for the Emilia-Romagna club.

Verona dominated the match, hitting the woodwork four times but Sassuolo broke the deadlock three minutes from the interval and against the run of play.

Jeremie Boga latched onto Domenico Berardi's cross-field pass and curled it into the far top corner.

Berardi got onto the scoresheet himself in the 76th minute as Verona players failed to close him down before he unleashed a shot that took a slight deflection to dip under the crossbar.

Sassuolo rare one point ahead of third-place Roma, who beat Parma 3-0.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan scored twice in an impressive first half for Roma after Borja Mayoral's opener.

Two late goals helped Inter Milan fight back from 2-0 down to beat Torino 4-2 thanks to an inspired Romelu Lukaku.

Simone Zaza, fired Torino in front on the stroke of halftime and Cristian Ansaldi doubled the visitors' lead in the 62nd from the penalty spot after Ashley Young fouled Wilfried Stephane Singo.

Inter pulled one back just two minutes later as Lukaku's shot came off the crossbar with Alexis Sanchez managing to fire in the rebound.

Lukaku then hit the post before turning in Sanchez's cross.

And Inter's comeback was complete six minutes from time when Lukaku converted a penalty after Achraf Hakimi was tripped in the area by Nicolas Nkoulou.

Inter sealed the match in the final minute when Lukaku ran down the left and rolled across for Lautaro Martinez to tap in.

Cesare Prandelli's first match back in charge of Fiorentina ended in a 1-0 defeat at home to Benevento while Bologna won 2-1 at Sampdoria and Udinese beat Genoa 1-0.
