Ibrahimovic lifts Milan back to summit
Cagliari, Italy – Zlatan Ibrahimovic's 11th goal this season 0 at the Stadio Sant'Elia to overtake idle leader Juventus.
AC Milan held the top spot for a short spell over the weekend, and again put a little pressure on unbeaten Juventus to reclaim the top spot Wednesday against Udinese in a top-three clash.
Milan won for the fourth time in its last five, and for the ninth time during an 11-game unbeaten streak. Milan leads Juve by one point.
Cagliari is winless in three straight and sits six points above the relegation zone in 14th place.
After hitting the post inside 2 minutes, Cagliari gifted Milan the lead when a cross from Robinho was mistakenly turned into the net by Francesco Pisano for an own goal after just 4 minutes.
Milan added the clincher just before the hour mark, as Robinho headed down for Ibrahimovic, who settled and lunged to get a shot past Cagliari goalie Michael Agazzi from the right side of the area.
Siena 0, Fiorentina 0
Siena, Italy - Sienna held Fiorentina to a 0-0 draw Tuesday at Stadio Comunale to end a four-game losing streak, although its winless run reached seven games in Serie A.
Siena forward Emanuele Calaio headed onto the crossbar inside the half-hour on the best scoring chance for either side.
Despite its recent slide, Sienna used the point to move three points clear of the relegation zone in 17th place with 15 points from 16 matches.
Fiorentina tied its second straight during a three-game winless streak, and is six points above the bottom three in 14th.
