Paris Saint-Germain has defeated Olympique de Marseille in a match of Coupe De France played at Parc des Princes on Wednesday. PSG won the match by 2-0.
These two teams had locked horns with each other three days back as well. PSG had won that match also by the same margin.
With this win, PSG made its way into the quarter finals of the tournament.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic was the hero of PSG’s victory in this match. Both the goals were scored by him.
Ibrahimovic had scored a goal in the last match against Marseille as well.
For this match, David Beckham was included in the starting line up of PSG and he played for 86 minutes.
Both the teams began the match in a steady manner. There were not too many goal scoring chances created in the first 25 minutes.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic got an opportunity around half an hour mark, but, his shot was cleared by Steve Mandanda and that opportunity went begging.
Ibrahimovic made up for that lost chance just a few minutes later. Chantome’s long ball fell in the way of Ibrahimovic who went past Mandanda and then, slotted the ball into the post to take PSG ahead.
PSG earned a penalty in the 19th minute of the second half and Ibrahimovic took the shot. The Swedish striker didn’t miss out on that chance. With a powerful shot, he sent the ball into the bottom corner of the net and made the score 2-0 in the favour of his side.
After that second goal, the PSG team changed its approach a bit. They were not attacking that much. They were just trying to make sure that they wouldn’t concede any goal. They succeeded in their intention. They didn’t let Marseille find the net even once and won the match comfortably.
PSG’s next match will be a Ligue 1 clash against Reims on Saturday.
