The Swedish star has contributed with a hat-trick in the Parisians victory away to Brest, final score 5-2 to PSG, in a French Cup match. Ibra took only 42 minutes to score three times in opposite goal.
Excellent start to the Parisians leading scorer, Zlatan Ibrahimovic. In Ligue 1, the Swede leads the top scorers table with 15 goals in the first 19 rounds, but he excelled and in the French Cup match against Brest from yesterday (which was postponed over the weekend due to weather conditions).
“It wasn’t an easy match. It’s never easy to play good football on a difficult pitch. We are very happy to have qualified. Now we have to focus on the next game.” Ibrahimovic told the official website of the group in Paris.
PSG tactician, Laurent Blanc, was also delighted by the professionalism of his players, who did not take the foot off the accelerator even if they had to face a lower league opponent.
“We’re always happy when we win. With all these postponements, it really wasn’t easy,” said the French manager after the game.
“We wanted to play and we wanted to win. We played very well. Despite the conditions, we found the keys to victory. We did it calmly and confidently.” Blanc added.
