Ibra gives AC the initiative

Updated: March 25, 2012

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored twice to earn AC Milan a 2-1 win over Roma on Saturday and send the rossoneri seven points clear at the top of Serie A.

The title pressure is now firmly back on Juventus, who must beat Inter Milan in Turin on Sunday to keep pace with the champions.

Ibrahimovic now has 22 goals in 23 league games this season.

Udinese moved into the third and final Champions League berth when Gabriel Torje’s goal six minutes from time gave them a 1-1 draw at Palermo, for whom Fabrizio Miccoli opened the scoring.
