AC Milan Get Themselves Into History Books As They Equal FC Barcelona’s 72 Year Old Goal Record

Highlights:

  • AC Milan writes themselves in the history books with first half double
  • Rossoneri equal 72 year olf record set by FC Barcelona
  • AC Milan defeated Lazio 3-2 on today

Italian giants, AC Milan, have been the pacesetter in the top Italian League, Serie A, and now have enhanced their reputation with another huge achievement to their name.

Rossoneri has been in a superb form in Serie A this season and the football club has got themselves written in the history books as they defeated Lazio 3-2 in the early hours of Thursday as Stefano Pioli’s side continue to establish their serious Scudetto bona-fides.

The Rossoneri have been among the top runners for the title of Serie A this season asn as serious daylight already between the top two of them and rivals Inter, and the rest of the chasing pack, including the current title holders Juventus.

On Wednesday, when the Bianconeri faced defeat to Fiorentina, heading into their last match ahead of Christmas, Pioli’s side remained the only unbeaten outfit not just in Serie A but across the top 5 leagues of Europe.

With the win at San Siro, they also added another notch to their cap for the current season, which led them into becoming the only team in over 70 years to score two-plus goals in at least 15 consecutive games in a single calendar year across the same clutch of competitions.

Spectacular goals from Ante Rebic, Hakan Calhanoglu and Theo Hernandez helped AC Milan in becoming the only second football club to achieve the colossal feat, following in the footsteps of Barcelona, who managed to score at least twice in 18 games on the trot in the year 1948.

“Fired by the scoring exploits of legendary attacker Cesar Rodriguez, the Blaugrana achieved title triumphs in La Liga in both 1947-48 and 1948-49, which may yet prove a promising omen for Pioli as he looks to break Juve’s long-term stronghold on the Serie A crown”, Goal.com said.

Apart from the defeat against Lille (3-0) in the group stage of the UEFA Europa League back in November, AC Milan is yet to lose a match across all of the competitions this season making them the favourites to win not just the domestic titles but also the continental ones.

No doubt it has been a remarkable run from AC Milan in multiple fronts of the game, albeit one that was nearly scuppered in early October when Calhanoglu was required to find a 120th-minute finish in the extra-time of the game which forced the game to go in the penalty shootout against Rio Ave which helped the team secure European football.

As AC Milan claims 3 additional points before going for the Christmas and the new year off, they will be returning to action on the 4th of January when they will face Benevento following a festive rest period.
