2015/2016 French Ligue 1
  • Zlatan Ibrahimovic (17', 89')
  • Lucas Moura (43')
  • Marquinhos (52')

Paris Saint-Germain 4-0 Nantes

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored a brace to break Carlos Bianchi's record of 37 goals in a Ligue 1 season as Paris St Germain saw off Nantes 4-0.
In his final ever game at the Parc des Princes, Ibrahimovic left a memorable mark as his goals, partnered with strikes from Lucas and Marquinhos, ensured yet another emphatic victory for the champions.
As reported before kick-off, when the 10th minute arrived, referee Lionel Jaffredo brought proceedings to a halt so that fans and players from both sides could pay homage to Ibrahimovic in his penultimate game for the champions.
And, as if the writing had already been on the wall, the talismanic Sweden international opened the scoring shortly after the quarter-hour mark when he turned home Angel Di Maria's delivery from the right to level Bianchi's record of 37 Ligue 1 goals in a season.
The hosts continued to dominate and only a trio of decent saves from Maxime Dupe prevented Laurent Blanc's side from doubling their lead with Ibrahimovic, Di Maria and Javier Pastore all being denied.
Nantes' resolve was broken though, just before the interval, when Ibrahimovic and Di Maria combined to play in Lucas who finished well from the left side of the area on a day he declared his unhappiness at the lack of regular first-team football in the French capital.
And PSG made it three after the restart when Ibrahimovic saw his direct free-kick well saved by Dupe but Marquinhos pounced to score from the rebound.
Nantes were offering little in the way of goalmouth action and it was Ibrahimovic who looked most threatening but he dragged an effort wide of the target after Lucas had intercepted to prompt a counter-attack.
And PSG's departing star made sure of claiming Bianchi's record late on, lobbing a header over Dupe in the 89th minute before being escorted from the pitch to a rapturous applause by his two children.
