ZLATAN Ibrahimovic scored four as Paris Saint-Germain turned on the style on Sunday to beat Troyes 9-0 and clinch a fourth consecutive Ligue 1 crown in record time.
Just four days after advancing to the Champions League quarter-finals, PSG wrapped up the club’s sixth French title with eight games and 62 days to spare by beating a Troyes side destined for an immediate return to the second tier.
Laurent Blanc’s men obliterated the French record for the quickest league victory, which was held by Lyon who won the 2007 title under Gerard Houllier with five games to go.
Unlike last season when PSG waited until late March to take over top spot, the capital club have set the pace uninterrupted since beating Ajaccio 2-0 in their second game of the campaign.
Three goals in six early first-half minutes settled PSG’s nerves at Troyes’ sun-kissed Stade de l’Aube.
