Zlatan Ibrahimović scored Paris Saint-Germain FC's opener in an accomplished victory at GNK Dinamo Zagreb, the Ligue 1 side's first UEFA Champions League away win since 1997.

Swedish international Ibrahimović and Jérémy Ménez converted classy first-half goals and the Ligue 1 leaders would have won by more had Ibrahimović taken three excellent chances. Carlo Ancelotti's team moved onto six points and condemned Dinamo to their ninth straight UEFA Champions League defeat; their third by the same 2-0 scoreline this season.

We conceded goals from our mistakes. I congratulate PSG, who showed they are quality and a class above us. We'll work harder now, we must be better.

We're very pleased. We had a good attitude and controlled the game. We could have scored more but this is a good result and a good performance.
