Olivier Giroud has been the difference for AC Milan this season, scoring against one of their main rivals to help the Rossoneri win 1-0 against Napoli keeping them on track to win their first Serie A title in over a decade.

Milan returned to the top of the Italian league when Giroud scored the lone goal in a tense but cagey match.

Milan is two points ahead of defending champion Inter Milan – who has played one fewer match – and three points ahead of third-placed Napoli.

Last month, the 35-year-old Giroud, who arrived from Chelsea in the winter, scored both goals in a 2-1 win over Inter.

Milan coach Stefano Pioli said, “We wanted to bring in guys of substance, players who had already won something, people who knew what it meant to work hard to win.”

‘It just took a video conversation with Olivier for us to understand what a fantastic professional and guy we were dealing with.’

Because we are still a young group, it is critical to have players with experience, professionalism, and personality. Our goal was to bring in players that were top-notch in every way: technically, tactically, and ethically. Olivier embodies all of these qualities.’

Juventus is seven points behind Milan and overcame Spezia 1-0 to keep its slender title aspirations alive.

The talk leading up to the game concentrated on the return of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who was available for Milan for the first time since January after suffering an Achilles injury.

However, another veteran took center stage instead. Giroud broke the deadlock four minutes after the restart after a first half that was heavy on entertainment but light on scoring chances.

Although Davide Calabria’s shot was poor, Giroud did well to redirect it into the bottom left corner after Napoli failed to clear a free kick.

Giroud scored his 11th goal for Milan, but it was his first away from the San Siro.

Victor Osimhen’s strong strike was straight at Milan goalkeeper Mike Maignan, and Napoli very immediately equalized.

In the final minute, Ibrahimovic was introduced.
