Zlatan Ibrahimovic found his scoring touch again with two goals as Paris Saint-Germain eased to a 3-0 win against Benfica in their Champions League Group C game on Wednesday. The imposing Swede had scored only twice in 10 games prior to the match. But he took only five minutes to tap-in from close range and headed home another as PSG tore Benfica apart during a rampant first half in which Brazilian center-half Marquinhos got the other goal. It was the 19-year-old's third in the past five games. PSG is in command of the group with six points and seven goals scored. This win was so comfortable that, toward the end of the first half, the home fans were already singing unpleasant songs about Marseille. The bitter rivals meet on Sunday.
