Bastia 0-2 Paris St-Germain

Zlatan Ibrahimovic missed the start of the season through injury

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored twice as Paris St-Germain beat Bastia to extend their unbeaten start in Ligue 1.

The Swede, PSG's all-time top scorer, has now scored six goals in his last four league games.

His two strikes - both in the final 20 minutes - were straightforward finishes following passes by Edinson Cavani and Serge Aurier respectively.

Laurent Blanc's side, who are chasing their fourth consecutive title, have won eight of their opening 10 games.

They are five points clear of second-placed Angers, who beat Toulouse 2-1.
