By: Manu Tournoux

Olivier Giroud scored his eighth headed goal with Milan in 2023 on Saturday, the best total for a striker in the five major championships.

Olivier Giroud was unable to prevent the defeat of AC Milan on the pitch in Bergamo (3-2) on Saturday during the 15th day of Serie A. Before Luis Muriel’s decisive goal, the French striker had equalized in placing a beautiful header (45th+3), unstoppable for the Atalanta goalkeeper, on a cross from Florenzi.

This area of ​​the game remains one of Giroud’s strong points, who scored his eighth headed goal in 2023 in Serie A. In Europe, no one does better. Only Harry Kane does as well in the five major championships, also scoring eight headed goals in the Premier League with Tottenham and then with Bayern in the Bundesliga.

Third in Serie A, quite far from the Juve-Inter duo, and in great difficulty in the Champions League, AC Milan is not having a flamboyant start to the season. But Olivier Giroud continues to perform well. He is now the second top scorer in Serie A, with 8 goals, behind leader Lautaro Martinez (14 goals).
