Paris Saint-Germain forward, Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s second-half brace on Saturday ensured a 2-0 victory for the defending champion away to SC Bastia.
The Laurent Blanc- coached side opened scoring in the 72nd min with an Ibrahimovic goal from an Edinson Cavani assist. He added a second 11 mins later latching to a Serge Aurier pass.
The victory saw the Paris-side extend their lead to 5 point over closest rival, Angers, as they top the Ligue 1 table with 26 points after 10 games.
Laurent Blanc while speaking on the victory and UEFA Champions League preparation at the post-match conference said, “I’m very happy with the three points and that will allow us to prepare well for Real Madrid (next week).”
“Our preparation hasn’t been ideal with players returning very late (from the international break) and having travelled long distances.
“But that’s the norm for big clubs, particularly those with lots of South Americans,” he added.
