Zlatan Ibrahimović has moved clear as Paris Saint-Germain's highest goalscorer in Ligue 1 history after taking his tally in the French elite to 87 with two goals in the 3-0 win at Nice on Friday.

The Sweden captain had drawn level with previous record-holder Mustapha Dahleb on 85 goals against Troyes last Saturday but set a new landmark by finding the net from the penalty spot after he was brought down in the 44th minute. The Paris talisman scored his second of the evening from an acute angle on 61 minutes, having also set up the opener for Edinson Cavani.

Ibrahimović, who joined Paris from Milan in 2012, surged out in front as Paris's leading goalscorer in just his 103rd Ligue 1 game, and earlier this season also became the capital club's most prolific marksman of all time.
