WakeUP project


Ibrahimovic and Messi

On Wednesday, AC Milan’s Swedish striker will be face to face with Barça’s Argentinian, two of Europe’s most lethal strikers at the moment

The Swede has scored 22 goals in 23 league games so far, while the Barça star is the provisional top scorer in the Spanish league with 35 goals in 28 outings

The game between Milan and Barça on Wednesday will bring together two of the most effective attacks in European football, with two particularly prominent names: Zlatan Ibrahimovic for the Serie A outfit, and Leo Messi for the Catalans. Both have incredible strike rates this season.

Stunning form

The Swede has scored 22 goals in 23 league games played to date, and is undoubtedly the man the Lombardy giants are looking to for goals this season. Since returning from suspension, Ibrahimovic has scored 7 goals in just four games, including two in the dramatic comeback against Roma last Saturday.

The Argentinian is top of the goalscoring charts in Spain with 35 goals in 28 matches. This is possibly his best moment of the campaign so far, with 12 goals in his last six domestic championship appearances, with his amazing five-goal spree against Bayer Leverkusen in between. In doing so, Messi has also been confirmed as Barcelona’s highest ever goalscorer in official matches.

A year together

Ibrahimovic and Messi know each other well after sharing a dressing room in the 2009/10 season and the start of the following one. In that time, Ibra scored 22 goals, while Messi got 47, all of which contributed to that amazing year when Barça won six trophies.
