The Sweden international, who began his career at the French giants’ opponents, netted the third goal in a comfortable win for Laurent Blanc’s side that wrapped up qualification
Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored on his return to former club Malmo as Paris Saint-Germain ran out 5-0 winners at the Swedbank Stadion.
PSG star and Swedish national hero Ibrahimovic, who began his glittering career at Malmo, netted the third goal of a routine victory for the French champions, who are now guaranteed to finish second behind Real Madrid in Group A.
A double from the impressive Angel Di Maria, as well as Adrien Rabiot’s early opener and a stunning late free-kick from Lucas Moura, gave the scoreline a one-sided, but fair look, as PSG outclassed the pool’s bottom-placed side.
Malmo’s evening was summed up by Markus Rosenberg missing a penalty on the hour with PSG 3-0 up, and the home fans’ biggest cheer of the evening was reserved for Ibrahimovic, who received a standing ovation when he was substituted five minutes from time.
The hosts began brightly and Rosenberg was left unmarked to test Kevin Trapp with a header after they forced a corner.
But two minutes later PSG took the wind out of Malmo’s sails when Rabiot surged out of midfield and started a move that ended with him nodding Gregory van der Wiel’s cross past Johan Wiland.
