Coupe De France: Ibrahimovic’s Winner Takes PSG To Final


Paris: Zlatan Ibrahimovic smashed a brilliant second-half goal as Paris Saint Germain (PSG) breezed past Lorient 1-0 to storm into the finals of the Coupe de France on Wednesday.

After the goalless first-half, striker Ibrahimovic came to his side’s rescue by scoring a fine goal in the 75th minute to give PSG their eighth straight victory over Lorient.

Lorient had several chances of scoring, but PSG goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu produced a scintillating performance as he saved two decisive goals from Abdul Majeed Waris and Benjamin Moukandjo.

The Cup holders and Ligue 1 champions will now lock horns against either second tier Sochaux or arch rivals Marseille in the finals.
