Di Maria, Ibrahimovic Steer PSG Past Guingamp

French Ligue 1

Result: Paris Saint-Germain - Guingamp

Date: 22 September 2015

Venue:  Parc des Princes

Angel Di Maria and Zlatan Ibrahimovic were among the goals as Paris Saint-Germain recorded a 3-0 win over Guingamp on Tuesday evening. 

The host nearly went ahead after just five minutes when Gregory Van der Wiel picked out Edison Cavani at the near post, but the Uruguayan's effort was brilliant saved by Lossl.

PSG eventually took the lead in the 18th minute as Zlatan Ibrahimovic showed good skill, before picking out Javier Pastore who rifled home into the bottom corner.

Ibrahimovic nearly registered his name on the score-sheet two minutes later but his curling effort from close range sailed just wide of the upright.

Lossl came to Guingamp's rescue once again in the 26th minute, as he was well-positioned to keep out Ibrahimovic's stinging effort from distance.

The second half continued in the same fashion as the opening half, although poor finishing from the hosts kept the score at 1-0.

The Ligue 1 champions then extended their advantage in the 76th minute as Lossl dropped a tame effort from Ibrahimovic, but Angel Di Maria was on hand to slot home for his first league goal.

Ibrahimovic eventually registered his name on the score-sheet in the 83rd minute, as the Swedish forward turned home Di Maria's cross from the left flank.

PSG then had the chance to add a fourth in the 87th minute when they were awarded a penalty, however Lossl guessed right and thwarted Ibrahimovic's spot kick.

Nonetheless, Laurent Blanc's side clinched the three points with relative ease and now boast four-point lead over second place, Rennes.
