Superb Ibra Double Sends PSG into French League Cup Final

MOST COMMENTED

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored both goals -- including a stunning cushioned lob from distance -- as Paris Saint-Germain advanced to the Coupe de la Ligue final on Tuesday with a 2-1 win at Nantes. On a rainy night, PSG took an early 5th minute lead after goalkeeper Remy Riou’s botched clearance landed in the path of Ibrahimovic, who deflected the ball back over Riou’s head and into the net from about 25 yards. Nantes would later equalize through Olivier Veigneau with about 10 minutes, only for Ibra to head home a late winner as the game entered stoppage time.

"We are very happy with the victory," Ibrahimovic said after the game. "We are through to the final, so we are getting closer to one of our goals this season, but it isn't finished yet. There's still one more match to be played to win the trophy." PSG will next face the winner of the other semifinal between Lyon and Troyes on April 19th in the Stade de France.
