Ibrahimovic double guides Milan to victory

sports Updated: Mar 25, 2012 23:51 IST

Zlatan Ibrahimovic continued another fairytale season by scoring twice as AC Milan came from behind to beat AS Roma 2-1 at home and extend their lead at the top of Serie A on Saturday. Milan are well on course to retain their title and now have 63 points, seven more than second-placed Juventus, who host Inter Milan in Sunday's late night game.

Pablo Osvaldo put Roma ahead on 44 minutes but talismanic striker Ibrahimovic levelled from the penalty spot on 53 minutes after Daniele De Rossi's handball.

Ibrahimovic then lobbed the goalkeeper and headed home from close range seven minutes from time.
