VIDEO: Zlatan nets his 18th goal of the season in PSG win

Zlatan PSG

The mercurial Swedish striker scored the opener in a 2-0 victory over Bordeaux on Friday night.

Paris Saint-Germain extended their advantage over the chasing pack at the top of Ligue 1 to six points on Friday night, beating Bordeaux 2-0 at the Parc des Princes.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was once more the French capital city side’s talisman, opening the scoring after 58 minutes of a tense encounter.

There was a hint of offside, but the Sweden international made no mistake in converting Lucas Moura’s cross from close range.

Former Chelsea defender Alex made sure of the win, scoring the second in the dying minutes.

Yohan Cabaye also made his debut for the French club following his big-money move from Newcastle in the January transfer window.

One piece of bad news for Laurent Blanc’s men was an injury to Edinson Cavani, who was replaced by Ezequiel Lavezzi in the 76th minute after pulling up.

It is a potential Ligue 1 title decider next weekend, as PSG travel to take on second-placed Monaco at the Stade Louis II.
