Zlatan Ibrahimovic: On target for PSG

Paris St Germain celebrated their second Ligue 1 title in two years in style by breaking the record for the most wins in a season with a 4-0 rout of lowly Montpellier.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic rounded off a remarkable year, notching his 41st goal in all competitions after Ezequiel Lavezzi had earlier nudged them in front.

Second-half strikes from Lucas Moura and Adrien Rabiot completed the scoring to round off PSG's 27th win of the season.

Montpellier, safe from relegation due to their superior goal difference and the fact Evian were playing Sochaux, ended their poor season with a whimper in 15th place.

Lavezzi got the party started as early as the second minute, sending the ball into an empty net after a scramble that saw Montpellier keeper Geoffrey Jourdren pull off two decent saves before his defiance was eventually broken.

Ibrahimovic had his first sight of goal in the ninth minute, with Jourdren getting down well to block his low shot from long range.

Lucas surged forwards three minutes later and his shot from the edge of the box had the beating of Jourdren, but the Brazilian was denied by a post.

In the 21st minute Ibrahimovic got his goal. Javier Pastore sent the Swede scampering down the right-hand side of the box and his powerful shot left Jourdren rooted as it flew past him into the back of the net.

PSG showed no signs of letting up after the break, with Lucas adding a third goal in the 51st minute after good work from Pastore.

Jourdren continued to pull off good saves for the visitors, but his admirable efforts were undone again in the closing stages when his block from Kingsley Coman's shot fell perfectly into the path of Rabiot to tap into an empty net.
