AC Milan’s forward, Olivier Giroud, delivered an outstanding performance, contributing significantly to their dominant 3-1 Serie A triumph at home against AS Roma on Sunday. The French striker showcased his prowess by not only scoring one goal but also playing a pivotal role in creating another.

At 37 years old, Giroud exhibited his goal-scoring instincts by perfectly positioning himself for a header, securing AC Milan’s second goal. Furthermore, his remarkable back-heel flick set up Theo Hernandez for the third goal, solidifying Giroud’s instrumental role in the team’s victory.

Currently occupying the third position in the standings, AC Milan has accumulated 42 points, trailing leaders Inter Milan by nine points. They are also four points behind second-placed Juventus, who are set to host Sassuolo on Tuesday. AS Roma, on the other hand, finds themselves in the ninth spot with a total of 29 points.

The home team sealed their third goal as a result of Giroud’s exquisite flick that positioned Hernandez inside the box. Hernandez’s forceful strike hit the underside of the crossbar before finding the back of the net.

1:0 Yacine Adli (11′)

2:0 Giroud (56′)

2:1 Paredes (69 pen.)

3:1 Theo Hernández (69′)
