AC Milan took on Palermo in Serie A on Saturday. AC Milan came into the match just one point ahead of Juventus which had a game in hand and welcomed back top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The Swedish power striker returned from a three-match absence, during which he was punished for slapping a defender in a game against Napoli.

So it was appropriate that Ibrahimovic would slap the first point on the scoreboard, in the 21st minute.

And Milan struck again 10 minutes later. Ibrahimovic skipped past a tackle before scoring with style. The Swede registered his 17th goal of the season. Ibrahimovic returned right on time for AC Milan. The club recently lost Brazilian striker Alexandre Pato with an injury. AC Milan led Palermo 2-0.

The superstar made his comeback complete with another score, four minutes later. Ibrahimovic’s quick hat-trick gave AC Milan a 3-nothing lead into the break.

The Swede was the star of the show, as AC Milan won it 4-0.
