A vintage performance from Zlatan Ibrahimović helped take Paris Saint-Germain FC to the brink of the knockout stage as they knocked out GNK Dinamo Zagreb in fine style.

The gifted Sweden forward may not have added to his tally of 30 UEFA Champions League strikes but he set up all four goals. Having crossed for Alex's first-half opener, Ibrahimović laid on further strikes for Blaise Matuidi, Jérémy Ménez and Guillaume Hoarau to seal PSG's third Group A win and condemn the Croatian champions to their tenth straight group-stage loss.

At the break, the coach put things in place. We then attacked with intensity and saw a beautiful PSG. We are now in position to go through.

It was a deserved PSG win, but we had our moments in this match. We were not destroyed. PSG took all their chances and I must congratulate them.
