Zlatan is back.
Tonight he scored his first PSG-goal of the season when PSG completely crushed Guingamp. He had earlier assisted Pastore to 1-0 and semi-assisted Di Maria to 3-0 and Parc des Princes screamed "Ibra, Ibra, Ibra!" Zlatan is back.
Of course Zlatan is Zlatan so all he was thinking about after was his missed penalty.
– I should have scored the penalty, Zlatan said after.
PSG started well and took the lead in the 18th minute. Zlatan passed into Pastore in front of Guingamp's penalty area and Pastore placed the ball nicely behind goalkeeper Lössi. After the goal Paris completely took over, and it looked like it usually does on Parc des Princes. But they failed to create the really dangerous opportunities and at the end of the half Guingamp had two good chances, but Trapp was in the wat. 1-0 at halftime.
GOAL ON ZLATAN'S REBOUND
It was 1-0 until the 76th minute when Zlatan was involved in another goal. A hard left shot within the penalty area was saved by Lössi, but the rebound reached Di Maria who tapped the ball into the back of the net. 2-0 PSG.
"IBRA, IBRA, IBRA"
Then Zlatan (finally) scored in the PSG-shirt again. He got the ball back from Di Maria in the penalty area and shot perfectly with his right, a low hard shot down in the low right corner. 3-0, the game was done and Zlatan was back. "Ibra, Ibra, Ibra!" it sounded on Parc des Princes.
Zlatan was very active in the first half. Some great movement, an assist to Pastore's 1-0 (his 3rd this season) and sooo close an incredible goal with his left in the 19th minute. His gentle left strike was inches from the top left corner, resulting in a loud "Ibra, Ibra, Ibra". He played well and had another shot on goal in the 25th minute.
He started the second with a very hard free kick on goal from almost 30 metres. Lössi had it under control but Zlatan got a good hit. Minutes later he had a shot blocked by a defender on the goal line. He continued to be very active in PSG's passing play, dropping down deep and controlling alot of Paris attacks. In the 76th he shot on goal and the rebound reached Di Maria who made it 2-0. Involved in both goals.
But that wasn't enough for Ibra. In the 84th minute he (finally ) scored. A nice one-two with Di Maria and he got the ball to the left, close to Guingamp's goal. A perfectly timed right shot down right and it was 3-0. Zlatan's first goal of the season and total 107th in the PSG-shirt. He then missed a penalty but that's already forgotten.
