PSG beats Dinamo Zagreb 2-0 in Champion League


ZAGREB, Croatia (AP) -Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Jeremy Menez gave Paris Saint-Germain a 2-0 win at Dinamo Zagreb on Wednesday, inflicting a ninth successive loss in the Champions League for the Croatian team.

Ibrahimovic missed two chances before scoring in the 33rd minute after receiving a pass from Menez. The French winger scored in 43rd after a solo move that he ended by slotting the ball between the legs of Dinamo goalkeeper Ivan Kelava.

"Yet again we lost 2-0. Today, we had some chances but we made some stupid mistakes and conceded two goals," Dinamo Zagreb defender Domagoj Vida said. "PSG showed its class and used its opportunities."

PSG is second in Group A with six points, three behind FC Porto and three in front of Dynamo Kiev, which lost 3-2 at Porto in the other match on Wednesday.

Ibrahimovic had another great chance in the 64th minute after Javier Pastore had dribbled through the defense, but the Sweden striker's lob narrowly missed the target.

A header by PSG substitute Guillaume Hoarau in the second minute of the injury time almost extended the lead.

Dinamo Zagreb's performance was a marked improvement on its previous matches against Porto and Dynamo Kiev.
