Zlatan Ibrahimovic inspired AC Milan to win against Cagliari 2-0 on Saturday’s Serie A match.

Milan had played three straight games without scoring until Ibrahimovic came on board and scored the decisive goal in his first start for the club.

The Swede had failed to do the same in his debut match when he came in as a substitute in a goalless draw against Sampdoria on Monday.

Rafael Leao scored the opening goal for Milan when Samu Castillejo’s lofted pass found him and his shot deflected off defender Fabio Pisacane past Keeper Robin Olsen.

Then Ibrahimovic scored the second goal in the 64th minute from 12 yards after collecting Hernandez’s cross.

The 38-year-old had almost scored with a late header but it was ruled out as an offside.

Cagliari who were trailing behind a much better Milan barely threatened to score except for Nahitan Nandez shot from the right which was saved by Gianluigi Donnarumma.

The result means AC Milan are 8th on Serie A while Cagliari remain 6th after losing four matches this season.
