The big Swede can continue his remarkable campaign by entering the history books in AC Milan’s latest match.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic can break two different records during AC Milan’s match against Spezia on Saturday evening.

The 39-year-old striker needs only one goal to surpass Silvio Piola’s record from 1951/52 as the oldest Serie A player to score at least 15 goals in a season, according to Football-Italia.

The second record up for grabs is in becoming the first player in the 21st century to score against 80 different clubs in a top-five European division. Zlatan, of course, has played in Serie A, Ligue 1, and the Premier League across his career.

The former Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain star will also have one eye on his goal tally. He sits just two goals behind the league’s top-scorer Cristiano Ronaldo, despite having played six games fewer than the Juventus ace.

Spezia, meanwhile, will make their debut under their new American owner Robert Platek.
