Ibrahimovic lifts PSG, Montpellier lose again
PARIS - Big-spending Paris St Germain climbed to third in Ligue 1 with a 2-0 win over Toulouse on Friday while champions Montpellier continued their poor start to the season with a 3-1 defeat at promoted Stade de Reims.
Goals from Javier Pastore and Zlatan Ibrahimovic gave Paris St Germain nine points from five games, three behind leaders Olympique Marseille who travel to Nancy on Sunday.
“We are starting to show how strong we are but we know we can do even better,” PSG captain Christophe Jallet told the beIN SPORT television channel.
Ibrahimovic, the league’s top scorer with five goals, shone again, two weeks after his double gave unbeaten PSG their first win of the season against Lille.
The Sweden striker almost put his team in front at the Parc des Princes but he was denied by Toulouse keeper Ali Ahamada.
