Four-goal Ibrahimović leaves Anderlecht in a spin

Zlatan Ibrahimović scored four goals as Paris Saint-Germain FC won 5-0 – their biggest European away victory – at RSC Anderlecht to maintain their perfect record at the head of Group C.

The Sweden captain was in irrepressible mood as he became only the 11th player to hit four or more in a UEFA Champions League game. He registered three times between the 17th and 36th minutes and added a fourth for good measure after the hour to make it an incredible ten goals in his last five matches for club and country. Edinson Cavani struck in the 52nd minute as last season's quarter-finalists underlined their potency with a third successive continental success.

Match in 5

  • Ibrahimović hits first half hat-trick in comfortable win
  • PSG captain's first competition treble
  • Swedish international scores eighth fastest competition hat-trick
  • Cavani also on target, PSG unbeaten in 29 games
  • Ligue 1 side top Group C after teams' first meeting in 21 years

Reaction

I had a lot of time to deal with this defeat during the match. We must not think about reaching third place. There is no chance.

I feel good. This year, we are stronger, we have stronger players. We could win the competition but remember that the further you go, the harder it is.

Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    What a night for PSG and Zlatan Ibrahimović. He has given a finishing masterclass here in Brussels and it has been appreciated by everyone involved in this game. His four goals and Edinson Cavani's strike leave PSG at the top of Group C and Anderlecht at the bottom ahead of these teams meeting in Paris on matchday 4.
