Blaise Matuidi fired PSG into an early lead at the Stade de France, but Marseille hit back just 10 minutes later through on-loan Newcastle midfielder Florian Thauvin.

Ibrahimovic then put PSG 2-1 ahead from the penalty spot on 47 minutes, with Edinson Cavani adding a third before Ibrahimovic struck again with his 156th and final goal for PSG eight minutes from time.

Michy Batshuayi grabbed a consolation strike for Marseille late on, but it was academic as PSG successfully defended last year’s domestic treble.
