PSG are simply unbeatable at the moment.
Tonight Zlatan scored twice when they beat Saint-Étienne 0-2 away in their 14th straight win and 32nd straight league game without losing.
– On the first goal I got a good inward pass. On the second goal I was simply in the right place, Zlatan said after the game.
PSG went to Saint-Étienne (without both Thiago Silva and David Luiz) to try and extend their Ligue 1-streak without losses to 32 games, which would be a shared French record. They did.
INTENSE ATMOSPHERE - EVEN FIRST HALF
The crowd on Stade Geoffroy-Guichard created an amazing atmosphere from the start which spillt on to the pitch. Both teams played with high pace and intensity and both goalkeepers Trapp and Ruffier were forced to make a couple of decent saves. The first half was relatively even but no goals were scored, 0-0 at halftime.
ZLATAN'S 13TH GOAL AGAINST SAINT-ÉTIENNE
The second started less intensely and PSG controlled began controlling the ball like they want to. Verratti came on the pitch after fifteen minutes which changed the game a bit and in the 61st minute Zlatan scored. Aurier came running on the right and crossed for Ibra in the center of the penalty area ans Ibra kicked the ball with one touch in to the goal. 0-1 to PSG.
MASTERFUL PSG-CONTROL - ZLATAN SCORED HIS SECOND
After the goal PSG were themselves again. Verratti's presence meant alot and PSG once again showed their class by controlling the pace as well as creating chances. It looked like it was gonna go to 0-1 but in the very end Zlatan scored his second to 0-2, Di Maria assisted. PSG won 0-2, their 14th straight win in all competitions (extending the club record) and their 32nd straight league game without a loss, a shared French record.
Started the game and was very involved in PSG's attacking game, mostly from a pretty low starting position. He was also caught offside a couple of times and had three attempts, two were on goal. The best chance came in the 35th minute when Di Maria set up Zlatan with a great through ball and Zlatan backheeled the ball on goal, but goalkeeper Ruffier saved with his foot.
Started the second similarly and in the 61st minute he scored his 18th goal in 18 Ligue 1-games. Aurier got to ball to the right and Zlatan ran towards the goal in the middle. Aurier crossed for him and Ibra stretched out his long leg and kicked the ball with his right behind Ruffier. He had a few more opportunities and on extra time he scored his 19th league goal. With some luck the ball landed on his feet with an open goal before him and he could easily place the ball in net.
