Ranking Zlatan Ibrahimovic's Top 6 Goals for Paris Saint-Germain

After Zlatan Ibrahimovic broke Carlos Bianchi's record of 39 goals in all competitions in a single season this weekend, here are his top strikes for Paris Saint-Germain.

Ibrahimovic's two finishes against Saint-Etienne marked his 24th and 25th league goals of the Ligue 1 campaign. They were also his 39th and 40th of the season in total, surpassing the record set by Bianchi in 1977/78.

These strikes are as varied as they are impressive. Some have been selected for their importance, crucial goals at crucial times. Some for their sheer brilliance, whether they are improvised volleys or a thunderbolt from distance. 

Before we begin with the list, a few goals that did not make the cut deserve honourable mention. First is the impudent stabbed volley against Marseille back in October 2012, a fine improvised effort that remarkably wasn't even his best goal in the game. 

Second is the record-breaking goal itself, the close-range volley against Saint-Etienne this weekend. A significant goal, it misses out simply because in terms of sheer brilliance, it cannot compete with the others in contention for a place in the top six.

Zlatan has scored all manner of brilliant goals and will undoubtedly score many more before the season ends. Only Lionel Messi, with 10, has scored as many as Ibrahimovic in one of Europe's top leagues this calendar year.

So read on and enjoy six of the Swedish striker's finest goals for Les Parisiens.
