Ibra Scores Classy Hat-trick Against Nice

Ligue 1
 
Result: PSG 4-1 Nice
 
Date: 2 April 2016
 
Venue: Parc les Princes
 
Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored a superb hat-trick on Saturday to see Paris Saint-Germain through to a 4-1 win over Nice in Ligue 1.
 
The Parisians hit the front via Ibrahimovic in the 15th minute. David Luiz sent a terrific ball over the top for the Swede and he controlled well before smashing it home off the bar.
 
Only a few minutes later the celebrations were hushed as Nice equalised. Hatem Ben Arfa received the ball in space and smartly beat Luiz before curling a shot beyond Kevin Trapp, who was rooted to the spot.
 
However, Ibrahimovic was the man of the moment yet again for PSG in the 34th minute when he hammered home a strike into the top corner of a helpless Yoan Cardinale's goal.
 
The hosts should have been two goals clear when Rabiot picked out Matuidi but he shot wide with only the goalkeeper to beat.
 
A few minutes into the second half the home side were 3-1 ahead. Ongenda produced a corner kick and Luiz was in position to score at the near post.
 
The victory was put beyond all doubt in the last 10 minutes as Ibrahimovic completed his impressive hattrick. Rabiot set it up for the striker who coolly netted his 30th goal of the season.
