AC Milan won a 3-0 victory when they visited the Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris, Genoa’s headquarters in the giornata match 15 Serie A Italian League, Thursday (2/12/2021) early morning WIB. Three Rossoneri goals were scored by senior players with different fates.
AC Milan’s advantage was opened by Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the 10th minute. The Swedish player is a mainstay for the Rossoneri when it comes to getting goals. Even in the past, Ibra, as he is best known, has always been a mainstay for so many clubs he has played for.
Call it Juventus, AC Milan, Barcelona, and even Manchester United. This tall striker has always been able to become an extraordinary mainstay in front of the opponent’s goal.
After that, AC Milan added to its lead through two goals scored by Junior Messias at the end of the first half and in the 61st minute.
The Brazilian is a player who just signed for AC Milan last summer, where the Rossoneri became the first big team he played for in his career.
One thing that is interesting, AC Milan won thanks to two players who are no longer young, but have very different career lines.
Ibrahimovic is still flying even though he is 40 years old, while Junior Messias is quite late to shine considering he is already 30 years old. An extraordinary combination in AC Milan ‘s attack .
Zlatan Ibrahimovic, The Unfinished Old Hero
At the age of 40 years on 3 October, Zlatan Ibrahimovic seems to have not lost his best touch in front of the opponent’s goal.
Ibrahimovic is still a mainstay for the Rossoneri to score goals. Even in Serie A this season, the six goals he has scored, including the one he scored against Genoa, have made him AC Milan’s top scorer in Serie A this season.
Just compare it with other strikers owned by AC Milan, where Olivier Giroud and Rafael Leao have only scored four goals each, Brahim Diaz has scored three goals, Junior Messias has scored two goals, and Ante Rebic and Daniel Maldini have only scored each. one goal.
Of course, these goals are clear evidence that Zlatan Ibrahimovic is still a player that Stefano Pioli can rely on to bring AC Milan to excellence.
Junior Messias, The Late Shining Star
The two goals he scored against Genoa were Junior Messias’ first goals with the Rossoneri in Serie A. Previously, the Brazilian player managed to score against Atletico Madrid while defending AC Milan in the Champions League.
This means that Junior Messias has scored three goals for the Rossoneri since arriving last summer on loan from Serie B side Crotone. One thing is for sure, two goals against Genoa make the 30-year-old player now attracting attention.
The reason is, not many world football fans know the figure of the Messias before. In his entire career until he is now 30 years old, this Brazilian player has not once defended a big team.
After starting his professional career with a small Brazilian club, Casale, the Cruzeiro academy dropout then tried his luck by flying to Italy in 2016 and joining Chieri, a club that is now active in Serie D.
After that, Messias joined Gozzano, an Italian club that had just been promoted to Serie C in 2018. Soon he decided to join Crotone who was in Serie B on January 31, 2019.
Messias had brought Crotone promotion to Serie A and appeared in the highest caste of Italian football for the first time in the 2010/2021 season. Unfortunately, Crotone only had one season in Serie A and returned to Serie B.
However, not with the Messiah. The striker who is now 30 years old stole the attention of AC Milan and was finally loaned by the Rossoneri last summer.
Messias has now scored three goals for AC Milan, one goal in the Champions League, and two goals in the Italian League Serie A. Even though it is too late because he is already 30 years old, it is not impossible that Junior Messias will be even more brilliant with the Rossoneri.
