Result: Bastia 0-2 PSG
Date: 17 October 2015
Venue: Stade Armand Césari
Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored a brace to see Paris Saint-Germain beat Bastia 2-0 in Ligue 1 on Saturday.
The opening half of the clash was a dull affair as neither side could forge any real chances. Both sides struggled for tempo and it was scrappy, with numerous fouls interrupting the flow of play.
Four minutes into the second half there was a big shout for a PSG penalty when Serge Aurier was played into the area by a ball over the top only to be brought down by Gael Danic, but the referee didn't see anything untoward.
In the 55th minute the game saw its best chance when Lucas powered down the right flank before crossing for Zlatan Ibrahimovic at the far post, but the Sweden international's headed effort went just wide.
The breakthrough finally arrived in the 72nd minute as Ibrahimovic found his scoring boots. Pastore played a neat ball over the top for Edinson Cavani who unselfishly squared for Ibrahimovic to finish with ease.
The result was secured in the 83rd minute as the enigmatic Ibrahimovic completed his brace. Aurier led a counter attack with pace and surged into the area, drawing the keeper before squaring for Zlatan to score with another simple finish.
