Zlatan Ibrahimovic scores twice as Paris Saint-Germain beat Nantes 2-1 in their Coupe de la Ligue semi-final at the Stade de la Beaujoire.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored a late winner for Paris Saint-Germain as they booked their place in the Coupe de la Ligue final by beating Nantes 2-1 at the Stade de la Beaujoire.

Ezequiel Lavezzi almost opened the scoring for the visitors, but saw his low effort from inside the box crash against the post.

In the fifth minute of the match, PSG took the lead as Ibrahimovic latched on to a poor clearance from Remy Riou before curling home a first-time strike from 30 yards out.

Lavessi came close to adding a second, but the keeper was out quickly to deny him from close range.

Nantes were denied the chance to go into the half-time break level, as Marco Verratti cleared a header from Papy Mison Djilobodji off the line.

Olivier Veigneau drew the home side level with nine minutes to play when he was picked out at the back post, and kept his composure to place a well-controlled shot past Nicolas Douchez.

In the final minute of the match PSG sealed their place in the final, as Lucas whipped in a cross from the right that Ibrahimovic met to power a header into the bottom corner.

PSG will play the winners of the second semi-final between Lyon and Troyes, which takes place tomorrow night.
