No European hangover for rampant Ibra and PSG

There was no Champions League hangover for Paris Saint-Germain as they continued their relentless march towards another Ligue 1 title by outclassing Reims 4-1 on Saturday, Zlatan Ibrahimovic scoring twice.

The Swede got the opener in Tuesday's 2-1 Champions League last 16, first-leg win against Chelsea and he scored once in each half here to take his tally for the season to 23 league goals and 30 in all competitions.

Ibrahimovic is playing some of the best football of his career at the moment and the 34-year-old also set up the opener for Gregory van der Wiel and got the assist for Edinson Cavani's goal as Paris maintained their unbeaten domestic record this season.

Prince Oniangue had equalised for Reims in the first half but PSG were too strong and are now a huge 27 points clear at the top of the table before Monaco in second host bottom club Troyes later.

Laurent Blanc's side extended their Ligue 1 record unbeaten run to 36 matches and the only black mark on their afternoon's work was the first-half substitution of Angel Di Maria, although that was merely a precautionary measure.

With Serge Aurier still absent after being suspended by the club for insulting Blanc and several team-mates in a video posted on social media, Van der Wiel started at right-back for PSG and it was the Dutchman who opened the scoring in the 12th minute.

Van der Wiel started the move and found Ibrahimovic before running onto the Swede's superb return ball to fire past Johann Carrasso, who was making his debut in goal for the visitors.

However, Reims drew level in the 34th minute when Kevin Trapp got nowhere near a Nicolas de Preville free-kick delivery and Congolese midfielder Oniangue gleefully headed into the gaping net.

Di Maria was then replaced by Lucas, apparently with a minor hamstring complaint, before Paris went back in front two minutes before the interval.

Ibrahimovic initially tried to exchange passes with Lucas only for Franck Signorino to block, but the ball came back to the former Barcelona striker and he tucked home.

There was still time for the hosts to make it 3-1 in stoppage time at the end of the first period, with Layvin Kurzawa and Ibrahimovic combining to set up Cavani.

The Uruguayan had been brought into the starting line-up after coming off the bench to get the winner against Chelsea and his first-time finish past Carrasso was his 16th goal altogether this season.

Blanc replaced the tired Marco Verratti with Blaise Matuidi at the start of a second half which was a quieter affair, although PSG got their fourth goal in the 68th minute.

Matuidi worked the ball out to Van der Wiel on the right and his cross was converted by Ibrahimovic at the back post, although he was clearly in an offside position when the ball came in.

Nice remain third after a 0-0 draw at Bordeaux on Friday but they could be leapfrogged by Saint-Etienne if they win at Marseille on Sunday and by Lyon, who go to Lille.
