The first appearance at home against Sparta Prague was also flawless 3-0. Despite being absent for a couple of weeks, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has incredible stats so far, having scored seven goals in four Serie A appearances.
Can AC Milan dethrone Juventus this season? If they manage to keep form at this level, that is realistic outcome.
