Ibra Scores Four As PSG Claim Ligue 1 Title

Ligue 1
 
Result: Troyes 0-9 PSG 
 
Date: 13 March 2016
 
Venue: Stade de l'Aube
 
Paris Saint-Germain humiliated Troyes 9-0 on Sunday as Zlatan Ibrahimovic netted four goals to secure their fourth straight Ligue 1 title.
 
The Parisians broke the deadlock in the 13th minute when Edinson Cavani was gifted with a chance. Saunier played a ball across the face of the goal under pressure from Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and Cavani was quick to see the opening as he intercepted and finished on the rebound.
 
Four minutes later it was 2-0. Ibrahimovic played a neat flick-on for Javier Pastore who beat a couple of tackles before lifting his shot over Dreyer and into the back of the net.
 
PSG were tearing the Troyes defence apart as they scored a third in the 19th minute. Cavani latched onto a lofted through-ball and had his effort blocked by the goalkeeper, but Adrien Rabiot was on hand to drill home.
 
Moments after the half-time break Ibrahimovic made it 4-0. Cavani layed the ball up for his strike partner and the Swede did the rest as he hammered a low shot past Dreyer.
 
The striker was running riot after getting his first as he netted a second in the 52nd minute when a guided Angel di Maria's cross into the corner of the goal.
 
Three minutes later the enigmatic front-man completed his hattrick. Kurzawa crafted the opportunity as he pulled the ball back for his teammate to strike home.
 
The humiliation continued as PSG got their seventh via an own goal from Matthieu Saunier who inadvertently directed Kurzawa's cross into the back of his own net.
 
Troyes were then reduced to 10 men when Lossémy Karaboué brought down Cavani in the box to earn a red card. Cavani stepped up and slotted the penalty for an 8-0 scoreline.
 
Ibrahimovic capped off the win with a fourth for himself and a ninth for the visitors in the 88th minute as he sweeped the ball past Dreyer.
