Paris: Zlatan Ibrahimovic is set to make his comeback for Paris Saint-Germain against Saint-Etienne in Ligue 1 on Sunday after two weeks on the sidelines with an abdominal muscle injury.

The Swede, who scored a club record 41 goals in all competitions last season, came off early in the 2-0 home win against Bastia a fortnight ago and missed last week's 0-0 draw at Evian with the injury.

However, he has recovered in time to be named in the squad to face Saint-Etienne, with PSG coach Laurent Blanc stating: "He is fine, he has been training without any problems since Tuesday. He will be in the squad. Will he start? You will see."
