Video: Ibrahimovic and Balotelli scored two cracking free-kicks yesterday
Two of the most entertaining footballers around showed their set-piece skills in their respective leagues yesterday.
Zlatan scored twice and also finished with two assists as PSG cruised to a 5-0 victory over Sochaux that sees them move into a four point lead at the top of Ligue 1.
After the French side lost their 36 game unbeaten run midweek, bottom club Sochaux faced the brunt of the backlash, though the Swedish striker saved his two goals for the final five minutes, the first being this powerfully hit 20 metre free-kick.
In Serie A, his former Inter team-mate Balotelli also grabbed a brace, though it was not enough for an AC Milan victory as the Rosseneri drew 2-2 with Livorno as they continue to struggle for their best form this season.
The former Manchester City player almost sealed victory with an 89th minute rocket that hit the crossbar, but his equalising free-kick with eight minutes remaining was the pick of the bunch.
Two classy strikes from the frontmen.
