Paris St-Germain's players celebrate scoring against Rennes
Paris St-Germain have won 28 of their 35 Ligue 1 games this season

Champions Paris St-Germain equalled their own Ligue 1 points record after two goals by Zlatan Ibrahimovic helped earn victory over Rennes.

After a goalless first half, Brazilian defender Maxwell broke the deadlock with a fine individual goal before Ibrahimovic doubled the lead.

The Sweden striker's second, his 34th league goal this season, was a volley and Edinson Cavani got the fourth.

PSG move to 89 points, 30 clear at the top.

PSG still have three league matches left - Ajaccio (away), Bordeaux (away) and Nantes (home).

Laurent Blanc's side last week added the Coupe de la Ligue to their Ligue 1 crown.

They will secure a domestic treble if they defeat Marseille in the Coupe de France final on 21 May.
