Zlatan hat-trick fires PSG into final

Zlatan hat-trick fires PSG into final
A Zlatan Ibrahimovic hat-trick fired Paris Saint-Germain to a 4-1 French Cup semifinal victory over Saint-Etienne at the Parc des Princes on Wednesday as their epic quest for a four-trophy sweep continued apace. Ibrahimovic’s opener from the penalty spot on the 21st minute was his 100th goal for the club, he then rounded the ‘keeper on 81 for the second, and completed his hat-trick with a fine run and shot in injury-time.

But an injury-depleted Paris had to fight for long periods of this gutsy Cup tie as Saint-Etienne drew level with a Romain Hamouma header, going in 1-1 at half-time before an Ezequiel Lavezzi header put PSG back ahead on 60. PSG now face second division Auxerre, who beat holders Guingamp 1-0 on Tuesday, in the Cup final at the Stade de France on May 30.
