Anderlecht 0-5 Paris St-Germain

Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Zlatan Ibrahimovic netted a stunning four-goal haul as Paris St-Germain beat Anderlecht convincingly in Champions League Group C.

The Sweden striker found an empty net to open the scoring and added a second with a sublime flicked back-heel.

He scored a spectacular third in the 36th minute, firing in a venomous first-time effort from 25 yards.

Edinson Cavani made it 4-0 after the break before Ibrahimovic struck his ninth goal in four games.

The Sweden striker's stunning third goal was even applauded by the home crowd, with Ibrahimovic returning the gesture to all four corners of the Constant Vanden Stock Stadium.

"Scoring a goal like this, it is good for the memory,'' Ibrahimovic said. "It was a big honour for me to have the home fans clap.

"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."

The 32-year-old also scored a brilliant flick at the weekend in a 4-0 win over Bastia.

PSG lead the group with three wins from three games, while Anderlecht are still without a point.
