Ibrahimovic nets brace in PSG’s Cup triumph

Paris, May 22 (IANS) Zlatan Ibrahimovic wrapped up his four-year stay with Paris Saint-Germain in style by netting a superb double and setting up another in the French champions’ 4-2 Cup final victory over Marseille.

The Swedish forward, who a week ago announced he would leave PSG by the end of this season, scored his first in the 47th minute from the penalty spot after Florian Thauvin cancelled out Blaise Matuidi’s early opener on Saturday, reports Xinhua.

Ibrahimovic then teed up Edinson Cavani at the 57 minute before adding a late goal on 82 minutes to nail PSG’s 10th French Cup title.

Marseille, who finished just 13th in Ligue 1, scored a second goal through Michy Batshuayi three minutes from time.

With the victory, PSG completed a second straight domestic treble after securing their fourth Ligue 1 title in a row with eight rounds remaining and lifted the Cup of League by the end of last month.
