Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored four while Edinson Cavani added one of his own in an emphatic 5-0 PSG victory away to Anderlecht in Belgium during Champions League play. This was a game that was thoroughly controlled as well as dominated by the French side thanks to its foreign stars. This was simply nothing short of a mismatch.

The big Swedish striker showed once again why he is considered one of, if not the best pure striker in the world. He scored yet another back-heel goal and one-timed a stunning rocket from 30 yards out into the top left corner. These are just two of the examples of goals that should be impossible to score for most, but he is seemingly out of this world.

With Ibra and Cavani leading the front line, this team can actually perhaps make it all the way to the semifinals unless they play a big club such as Bayern Munich or Barcelona on the way there. Then again, last season brought PSG and Barca against one another, and the French side were eliminated only because they tied 1-1 at home and 0-0 away — the away goals rule ended their season.

Regardless, this team can easily go a perfect 6-for-6 as they have managed to defeat all of their opponents thus far and have done so in a convincing manner. Anderlecht, Benfica and Olympiakos are simply no match for this star-studded team under the genius of coach Laurent Blanc. If everything goes right as expected, they can stroll to stay perfect and win this group with all 18 points.
