Paris St-Germain 2-1 Nantes

Zlatan Ibrahimovic celebrates after scoring his and PSG's second goal
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has now scored 11 goals for PSG this season

Paris St-Germain moved to the top of Ligue 1 after two Zlatan Ibrahimovic goals helped them come from behind to beat Nantes.

The visitors took a surprise lead after eight minutes courtesy of Alejandro Bedoya's long-range strike.

The home side hit back through Ibrahimovic with 10 minutes of the first half remaining.

And the Swede was on target again just after the break to seal the win, which lifts PSG above Marseille in the table.

However, Marcelo Bielsa's side can reclaim top spot with victory over Metz on Sunday.

PSG remain the only unbeaten team in Ligue 1, and can now turn their focus to their Champions League encounter at Barcelona on Wednesday, which will decide who will finish top of Group F.

And Ibrahimovic will travel to face his former club full of confidence after his two goals - the first a close-range finish following a swift counter-attack and the second a well-placed free-kick.

It takes his season's tally to 11 in all competitions, eight of which have come in Ligue 1.
