PSG cruises past Toulouse

Paris St Germain never had to find top gear as it cruised to a 2-0 victory against Toulouse to maintain its unbeaten Ligue 1 record.

Javier Pastore's goal gave the home side a halftime lead at the Parc des Princes.

And Zlatan Ibrahimovic ensured the second-half dominance was rewarded with a second goal.

The two goalscorers were both involved as PSG carved out the first chance of the game, Pastore freeing Ibrahimovic to dribble through the defense and get away a shot which was saved by the feet of Ali Ahamada.

Toulouse has started the season brightly itself and the in-form Wissam Ben Yedder tried his luck from 20 yards, but keeper Salvatore Sirigu dived full-length to save.

But the hosts took the lead seven minutes before halftime as Marco Verratti put Pastore in behind the defense and the midfielder calmly lobbed Ahamada.

Jeremy Menez had the chance to double their advantage five minutes after halftime when he was set up by Ibrahimovic, but his shot from a narrow angle was saved by Ahamada.

Pastore and Ibrahimovic linked up again two minutes later but the Sweden striker's 25-yard drive was also saved.

Ben Yedder was the only player carrying a serious attacking threat for Le Tefece, but he was again denied by Sirigu after being set up by Serge Aurier.

And they fell further behind when Ibrahimovic, not to be denied, rounded off a wonderful counterattack involving Verratti, the impressive Pastore and Menez.

Defender Alex almost netted a late third from Nene's corner, but Etienne Capoue cleared the Brazilian's header off the line.
