Obviously the Italian air suits him perfectly.

Since his arrival in Calcio, Olivier Giroud, 35 years old since September 30, has found a new youth.

Tuesday evening, the striker, author of the only goal of the game, allowed AC Milan to win (1-0) against Torino on the 10th day of the championship.

On the first Milan corner at fifteen minutes of play, the Frenchman was at the reception at the far post of a deflection from the head of Rade Krunic.

This is Giroud's 4th goal in 9 games (for 6 starts).

A form of consolation for the one who seems to be paying the price for the return of Karim Benzema to the Blues and who was not called by Didier Deschamps for the next international meetings of the France team.

If the native of Chambéry continues to stack goals, he could claim, despite his age, to find the Blues and invite himself for the next World Cup, in a year in Qatar.

He was replaced late in the game by Zlatan Ibrahimovic who did not have the opportunity to score the 400th league goal of his career.

The meeting also marked the return to the field of Milan defender Théo Hernandez, who tested positive for Covid-19 on October 13.

The French international played in the second period.

Thanks to this victory, the Milanese, still undefeated, continue their impeccable start to the season.

They gleaned their 9th success - the 6th in a row - and seize, alone, the top of the standings with 28 points.

They toast politeness in Naples (25 pts), slowed down by Roma on the last day, but which has one game less (reception of Bologna on Thursday).

The evening also smiled on another former member of the Blue House.

Led by its captain Franck Ribéry, untenable and in all the right moves, the Salernitana overthrew Venice (2-1) and temporarily abandoned the red lantern in Cagliari.

Decisive passer for Bonazzoli on the equalizer of Salernitana (61st), the French then caused the expulsion of the Venetian Ampadu, who tackled him late as he left alone on goal (67th).
