[VIDEO PICK: Golazos] Spectacular backheels by PSG's Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Porto's Jackson Martinez were on display in big rivalries Sunday.

Second-place Paris Saint-Germain visited the Stade Velodrome trailing first place Marseille by three points Sunday. Zlatan’s second goal, a powerful free kick, put PSG ahead, but it finished 2-2.

The first goal was pure Ibra, all creativity and power, as the big Swede now has nine goals in seven Ligue 1 appearances. He tied the game with this incredible touch on a Maxwell corner, two minutes before the free kick.



In Portugal, this ridiculous piece of skill from Colombian strikerJackson Martinez, at the Estadio do Dragao, produces the winning goal against Sporting Lisbon, and is also assisted by a Brazilian. Porto won 2-0, and remains tied with Benfica in first place.

Martinez has plenty more to do in the 10th minute, after receiving Danilo’s pass. Facing away from goal, and backpedaling, he takes a touch with his knee and somehow finds a way to flick the ball into the net.

Coincidentally, PSG was in Porto last Wednesday, when the Portuguese club won their Champions League matchup, 1-0.
