Although AC Milan suffered a 3-1 away defeat by Udinese on Saturday, Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic was able to celebrate a special record. By scoring the only goal for his team, he became the oldest goalscorer in Serie A history.
The Swede scored a penalty shortly before the break to make it 1-1. At 41 years and 166 days, the striker ousted former Milan pro Alessandro Costacurta from the top of the all-time rankings. Costacurta was 41 years and 25 days old when he scored his last goal in the Italian championship.
In the away game from Bologna against Salernitana (final score 2:2), ÖFB team player Marko Arnautovic (33) was injured. He came on as a substitute in the 65th minute to give the visitors a 2-1 lead, but was sent off 17 minutes later.
According to Bologna coach Thiago Motta, Arnautovic suffered a bruise. At first there was talk of a muscle injury. An investigation at the Viennese should provide clarity. Stefan Posch played through as a right-back for Bologna.
Whether Arnautovic will miss Austria’s European Championship qualifiers against Azerbaijan on Friday and against Estonia on the following Monday remains to be seen.
