Zlatan is in great shape at the moment.
Tonight he scored twice and served Cavani an assist when PSG demolished Nice 3-0.
On top of that he took the lead in the Ligue 1 top goalscorer-table this season.
– I feel great, I can't complain, Zlatan said after the game.
PSG went to The French Riviera to play 5th-placed Nice and after resting the last game Zlatan was back in the starting XI.
STRUGGLING PSG IN THE BEGINNING
Nice started the game well and put alot of pressure on PSG. The usually so welltimed and harmonious midfield struggled in the build-up, perhaps both Verratti and Rabiot missing was noticing. Zlatan had a great chance bit shot over, Ben Arfa in Nice did the same but no goals were scored until the 35th minute.
BEAUTIFUL ASSIST BY ZLATAN
Then Ibra created som magic. A breakthrough on the left, a one-two pass with Matuidi and finally a beautiful pass into Cavani who scored into the open net. 0-1, PSG. That created a momentum for PSG and only eight minutes later PSG got a penalty. Cavani passed Zlatan in the middle but fellow Swede Niklas Hult tripped him just before he was gonna score. Clear penalty and red card for Hult.
GOALS-RECORD BROKEN FOR ZLATAN
Zlatan stepped up and hit the penalty in his favorite spot, down to the left. Cardinale in Nice's goal was close, but not close enough. 0-2 to PSG, Zlatan's 86th Ligue 1-goal which meant he became the top PSG-goalscorer in Ligue 1 of all time. That was the halftime result.
With only 10 men and being down 0-2, Nice was not able to show the same enthusiasm and passion as in the first half and PSG completely took over the game. Ibra had two great chances within the first fifteen minutes and it looked like the game was done for.
IBRA ENDED WITH POWERFUL GOAL
And in the 61st minute Zlatan scored again. A perfect pass from Di Maria to Ibra on the right in the penalty area and this time he didn't pass into Cavani.. Bang! Low hard right shot, 0-3 to PSG, this was Zlatan's night. Ibra was subbed in the 77th minute and the last hafl hour was pretty quiet. 0-3 to PSG, impressive performance.
The first half of the the first half was up and down. He played a big part in PSG's attacks and created some greatness but also made som mistakes. He took one shot from close range but got too stressed and shot over.
The end of the half was brilliant though. First a perfect assist to Cavani's 0-1 after creating the opportunity himself and minutes later he was fouled by fellow Swede Hult and received a penalty, which he scored on. He looked sharp and in form and one goal and one assist in one half, no complaints there.
He was even better in the second. With Nice's red card came alot of space and Zlatan played brilliantly. He was very close directly in the second and in the 61st minute he scored his second of the night. A great hard low shot got passed Cardinale on the near post. Zlatan's 12th Ligue 1-goal this season. In the 77th minute Laurent Blanc took him off the pitch. Amazing, brilliant evening by the wonderful Zlatan Ibrahimović.
