The big clash with the ex-AC Milan player Gennaro Gattuso being now  Napoli coach is just a tough slap for Gattuso.  AC Milan needed to win, and they did, the Serie A Week 8 keeping the first position on Sunday 22 November 2020 at the San Paolo Stadium in Napoli.   AC Milan reaching 20 points is +2 points above Sassuolo in the second position with 18 points.   Napoli went down from the 3rd to the 6th position.

This is a historical victory for AC Milan because the last time they won a Serie A game at the San Paolo was in October 2010, ten years ago!!!! Imagine back then, the victory was thanks to the goals from Robinho and Ibrahimović. The hero again -ten years later – is Mr. Ibrahimović.

AC Milan are unbeaten in 19 Serie A games (W14, D5), the current longest unbeaten run in Serie A.   AC Milan are unbeaten in 14 away fixtures in all competitions (W9, D5). The Rossoneri haven’t done better than this since February 2004, back when Carlo Ancelotti was in charge of the team (15 matches).

It is AC Milan to open the score in the 20th minute. A superb Zlatan Ibrahimović defeating Napoli goalkeeper with a headed shot in the bottom right corner. This is the 9th goal of the season by Ibrahimović.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic inspired and increased the score for the 0-2 in the 54th minute. It is the 10th goal of the season by Ibrahimovic.

Napoli shortening the distance in the 63rd minute with forward Dries Mertens defeating AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma with a right footed shot.

AC Milan sealing the victory in the 95th minute with the first goal as an AC Milan player by Pete Hauge in the Serie A!
