Leverkusen, Germany: Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored twice as Paris Saint-Germain all but booked their place in the Champions League quarter-finals with a 4-0 away rout of 10-man Bayer Leverkusen on Tuesday.

Blaise Matuidi got the visitors off to a flying start in the first leg of their round-of-16 tie by scoring in the third minute.

Ibrahimovic made it 2-0 from a penalty in the 39th, after Emir Spahic hauled down Ezequiel Lavezzi, and effectively killed the game three minutes later when he rifled a shot from outside the penalty area inside the top far corner.
