Soccer-Four for Ibrahimovic as five-star PSG humble Anderlecht

BRUSSELS, Oct 23 (Reuters) - Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored four times - including a breathtaking 25-metre half-volley that capped a 19-minute hat-trick - as Paris St Germain humbled Anderlecht 5-0 in their Champions League Group C match on Wednesday.

The Sweden international struck after 17, 22 and 36 minutes - the eighth quickest treble in Champions League history - and added PSG’s fifth just past the hour to lead the French champions to victory at the Constant Vanden Stock Stadium.

Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani was also on the scoresheet in the second half as Laurent Blanc’s team moved to nine points from three games, top of the group and within sight of the knockout stages.

Anderlecht are bottom after three consecutive defeats. (Writing by Stephen Wood, editing by Justin Palmer)
