He hadn't scored in the PSG-shirt since 31 August.
He hadn't scored in Champions League this season.
Tonight he scored the winning goal when PSG beat Ajax in Champions League.
He is back.
– It felt great. But I need to get 100 % physically fit and I do that by playing more matches, Zlatan said after the game.
Finally! After almost three months without an Ibra-goal in the PSG-shirt (with two months of injury of course) the Ibra-world needed an Ibra-goal. And tonight it came.
He scored his 42nd Champions League-goal when PSG beat Ajax 3-1.
ZLATAN BEHIND THE FIRST GOAL
There weren't really any great chances in first half until the 33rd minute when Zlatan got the ball a couple of meters in on Ajax half and with one touch nicely put it through to Lavezzi who got clean with Cillessen in the Ajax-goal. He selflessly passed to Cavani who could put 1-0 in an open net.
RISKY YELLOW CARD FOR IBRA
Zlatan looked fired up in the first half. Ajax played well and actually held the ball alot on PSG's half and Zlatan didn't have too many touches. When he had the ball, he played simple and tried to build up the attack. He had one shot over the bar, a couple of offsides and after 35 minutes, he was in danger by tackling an Ajax-player from behind and getting a yellow card. Which to be honest, could have been a red. Puuuh. The halftime score was 1-0 to PSG.
PASSIVE PSG LET AJAX INTO THE GAME
PSG kept playing a somewhat slow game and didn't really create danger for Ajax. A couple of half chance-offences in the beginning of the first half but no chances. That opened up for Ajax who took the chance in the 67th minute. Kisha hit a nice cross from the right and Klaassen headed the ball in goal from short range, 1-1.
That meant that Barcelona at that time was in top of the group. So what better timing for Ibra to step up? 79th minute, Z got the ball from Pastore to the right in the penalty area, waited for half a second and then Boom! Right shot just by Cillesen's right post. 2-1 to PSG! Great Zlatan-goal! His 42nd Champions League-goal!
CAVANI GOT A GIFT
PSG scored again only minutes after. Ajax's Zimling didn't see that Cavani was walking deep in Ajax's half and passed to him, making him alone with Cillesen. The Urugyan didn't make any mistakes and made it 3-1, his second. That became the final result.
Zlatan is back for real.
