AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has said that he believes "the sky's the limit" after I Rossoneri returned to the top of Serie A with a 2-0 victory at Cagliari last night.

Francesco Pisano scored an own goal in the fourth minute and Ibrahimovic wrapped up the win in the 60th minute. Victory moved Massimiliano Allegri's team a point above Juventus, although that could change later today with Antonio Conte's side visiting third-placed Udinese.

A win for Juventus would see them leapfrog Milan, while victory for Udinese would move them level on points with the leaders, although it would take a seven-goal swing for Francesco Guidolin's side to go top. However, Milan are well positioned going into the Christmas break as they look to defend their title.

Speaking after the match Ibrahimovic said: "We'll see what happens tomorrow but we played our part. Now we have a bit of a break and when we get back we'll do what we've done up until now. We have to concentrate on ourselves. If we do what we know we can, we'll go far. We're the stronger team and if we don't slip up, the sky's the limit."

Allegri added: "It was a tough match, we suffered in the first half and then we played as a team that wanted to bring the three points home. The important thing was to win, to get to the top of the table and wait for the others."
