Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored his 400th league goal and won a penalty as ten-man AC Milan beat AS Roma 2-1 to go joint top of Serie A table with Napoli.

Ibrahimovic opened the scoring with a free-kick with Franck Kessie doubling the visitors’ lead from the spot after Roma’s Roger Ibanez fouled the 40-year-old. Theo Hernandez was sent off for Milan, with Stephan El Shaarawy scoring in added time against his former club.

Earlier on Sunday, Napoli edged to a 1-0 win at struggling Salernitana and, like Milan, have won 10 of their first 11 games this term.
