Zlatan Ibrahimovic's top five Paris Saint-Germain goals

After he became Paris Saint-Germain's all-time leading goalscorer, Sports Mole picks out Zlatan Ibrahimovic's top five goals for the French club.

He may have been with the club a little over three years, yet Zlatan Ibrahimovic remarkably became Paris Saint-Germain's leading goalscorer of all time at the weekend.

The Swede's brace of goals against Marseille took his tally for the Parisians to 110, which in turn saw him surpass Portuguese frontman Pauleta, who had held top spot since 2008.

Here, Sports Mole has looked back on all of Ibrahimovic's goals for the Ligue 1 champions and picked out five of the most memorable.

5. Sochaux (2013)

PSG headed into the clash against Sochaux on the back of a first defeat in 37 games against Evian, yet they responded in style at the Parc des Princes.

Thiago Silva, Ezequiel Lavezzi and Edinson Cavani had put the home side in command, before Ibrahimovic took charge with two goals in the final four minutes, the first of which was this powerful free kick that was still picking up speed as hit the back of the net. Thankfully for visiting goalkeeper Pierrick Cros he got nowhere near the ball - had he touched it, it may have caused serious damage!

4. Marseille (2012)

Trailing 1-0 to rivals Marseille, Ibrahimovic turned this encounter at the Stade Velodrome on its head.

Maxwell's corner from the left flank was outswinging, but an alert Ibrahimovic showed good strength and movement to get to the ball first. His back-heeled attempt was straight down the throat of home goalkeeper Steve Mandanda, but such was the velocity in the shot, before he could react the ball was in the net.

3. Marseille (2012)

Then, just 120 seconds after he had drawn PSG level, Ibrahimovic used brute force to put his side in front.

There was at least 30 yards between the striker and the target when he lined up the dead-ball situation, but as soon as he had powered his effort goalwards, it was clear Mandanda was in trouble. The Marseille keeper scampered across his line, but he was not quick enough.

2. Bastia (2013)

There is a YouTube video that shows Ibrahimovic scoring seven back-heeled goals throughout his career, but this one is undoubtedly the best of the bunch.

As the ball dropped out of the sky, Ibrahimovic had his back to goal and also had to deal with the pressure that was being put on him by Bastia's Francois Modesto. But, unperturbed by the attention, the Scandinavian produced acrobatics that he would later describe as "perfect". Considering the outcome, it's tough to argue with that summation.

1. Anderlecht (2013)

PSG ran out 5-0 winners in this Champions League group encounter in Brussels, with four of those goals coming from Ibrahimovic. Yet, there is no doubt over which of that quartet of strikes was the best.

A loose ball fell invitingly for the number 10, who had the necessary confidence to try his luck, despite being some way out. The result was a rasping half-volley that was clocked at 93mph before it flew into the Anderlecht net. Not a bad way for Ibrahimovic to bring up his hat-trick, that's for sure.
