Zlatan Ibrahimović got on the scoresheet as Paris Saint-Germain FC marked their return to the UEFA Champions League with an impressive victory against FC Dynamo Kyiv in Group A.

The Sweden captain opened the scoring from the penalty spot before centre-backs Thiago Silva and Alex added goals either side of the half-hour to leave Dynamo reeling. Although Miguel Veloso pulled one back late on, Javier Pastore quickly restored the hosts' three-goal cushion as the Ligue 1 team flexed their muscles in a dominant all-round display.

We looked good enough for the first 20 minutes. We lost today because we were really bad for the next ten. I hope we can fix the problems we had today.

Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    Matt Spiro, Parc des Princes: A brilliant start to PSG's first Champions League campaign in eight years. They dominated from start to finish and showed that with the likes of Ménez, Ibrahimović and Pastore in the side, they will be handful for their European opponents this season.
