Ibrahimovic and the juggernaut that is PSG roll into Nice on Friday in Ligue 1's only match of the day. The visitors are heavy favourites to continue their dominance.
To say PSG have been superb this season is an understatement. The capital city club have made it to the quarter finals of the Champions League and are close to wrapping up the domestic title. They've lost only once all year in league play and have an astounding goal difference of +52.
It's no surprise then that British bookmaker William Hill has them set to win today at Nice with odds of 1.40 in the 1x2 market. Even a double result pick sill doesn't crack evens with 1.91 being issued for that selection. A much better value pick would be the PSG to win with both teams to score which can be taken at 3.10.
They are 10-1-4 (W-L-T) on the road this season but with Chelsea looming around the corner next week in European play it may actually be worthwhile to consider a draw result for today.
A tie is offered at 4.50 which is big value. One has to expect that Laurent Blanc will rest some of his key players for this match to ensure a healthy roster for the Chelsea game on Wednesday. Brazilian defender Thiago Silva will surely be out of the lineup after breaking his cheekbone last week and Zlatan Imbrahimovic may indeed be given the night off as well.
Despite sitting in 11th spot in the table, Nice are 9-4-2 at home this season. They are unbeaten in their last three matches including a 1-1 draw away to Bordeaux last week. They are offered at a huge 8.00 to take full points today but don't expect that to crack.
If you are looking at a correct goal scorer pick then make absolute sure you wait until the starting lineup is released. There is no point in laying money on Ibrahimovic if he doesn't get the nod. He is listed at 1.57 to further extend his huge lead on the scoring charts in which he currently has 25 goals.
I expect Uruguayan international Edinson Cavani to star up front given PSG's upcoming Champions League tilt. He can be had at 1.73 to notch one today. He is second in the league with 14 goals.
