Ibra Surpasses PSG Record for Most Goals in a Season

MOST COMMENTED

Paris Saint-Germain maintained its eight-point lead over AS Monaco at the top of the Ligue 1 table thanks once again to star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who scored both goals in 2-0 win against Saint-Etienne on Sunday. The big Swede opened the scoring in the 14th minute with a low strike before volleying home to double the lead four minutes before the break.

It was Ibrahimovic’s 25th goal of the season in 29 games. However, with 40 goals in all competitions, the former AC and Inter Milan striker has already eased passed previous record-holder Carlos Bianchi for the most goals scored in a single campaign for PSG, and he still has at least 12 games to play in all competitions to improve on that tally.

Asked to comment on the record, Ibra, who now has 75 goals and 27 assists in 86 competitive games of the French champion, said: "The important thing is to win, my goals are just a bonus. I'm just doing my job. The record is important for you. Not me."
