One of the main reasons a neutral fan would tune in to a PSG match is to see what Zlatan Ibrahimovic does next. Over the past few years Zlatan has turned himself into one of the greatest characters in world soccer, which was certainly aided by his tendency to refer to himself in the third person. But behind that character of Zlatan remains one of the worlds best striker’s who still scores some incredible goals.
With Chelsea missing plenty of key pieces on defense for their Round of 16 Champions League match in Paris, it was no surprise that French champions controlled most of the possession for much of the first half.
And with that much possession, it was only a matter of time before Zlatan did what Zlatan does best.
