PSG win Ligue 1 title as Zlatan Ibrahimovic nets nine-minute hat trick
Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored four goals as Paris Saint-Germain clinched a fourth straight Ligue 1 title with a 9-0 win over Troyes on Sunday.
The victory opened up a 25-point gap between PSG and second-place Monaco with eight matches remaining, ensuring Laurent Blanc's men could celebrate the sixth Ligue 1 title in the club's history.
Three goals in the opening 19 minutes -- all scored in a six-minute span -- put the game beyond struggling Troyes, who are bottom of the table.
Edinson Cavani broke the deadlock before Javier Pastore and Adrien Rabiot completed a devastating period for PSG.
Ibrahimovic then struck a nine-minute second-half hat trick, giving him 101 Ligue 1 goals since he was signed from AC Milan in 2012.
An own goal from Matthieu Saunier made it 7-0 before Lossemy Karaboue was sent off when he gave away a penalty, on which Cavani missed before tucking home the rebound.
Ibrahimovic made the numerical advantage pay when he netted his fourth of the match in the 88th minute.
