Zlatan Ibrahimovic: Tipped to make move to Man Utd

Paris Saint-Germain’s bid to become the first team to complete an entire French top-flight season unbeaten continues after Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s goal secured them three points against Toulouse.

The Swede headed his 24th goal of the season in the 73rd minute leaving them 23 points clear at the top of the table and yet to lose a game in the Ligue 1.

PSG have lost just one game in all competitions, a 1-0 defeat to Read Madrid in November, and the loss for Toulouse sees their six-match unbeaten run come to an end.

At the other end of the table, bottom-placed Troyes lost 4-2 to Rennes after scoring twice in the first 15 minutes to take the lead.

Rennes were awarded two penalties in the first half with Fallou Diagne scoring both and the away side went into half-time with a 3-2 lead.

Kamil Grosicki scored Rennes’ fourth with nine minutes left, leaving winless Troyes 12 points behind second bottom Toulouse.

Guingamp move up to 19th after their 2-2 draw with Nantes – but they squandered a 2-0 half-time lead.

Nantes were allowed back into the game with a Christophe Kerbrat own goal but left it until the last minute of stoppage time to score the equaliser.

Gazelec Ajaccio and Reims also shared the points after a closely fought match at the Stade Ange Casanova.

Khalid Boutaib scored after only two minutes but a brace from Nicolas de Preville saw Reims go into half-time with the lead.

However, the Corsican hosts equalised in the second half and the point lifts them to 13th in the table.

Bastia and Bordeaux scored in the second half to beat Montpellier and Lille respectively.

Both Bastia and Montpellier had players sent off in the second half but it was the home side who found the back of the net in the 48th minute.

Cheick Diabate’s 51st minute goal for Bordeaux was enough to secure the points at Matmut Atlantique – a win which lifts them to ninth.
