PARIS (AP) — Star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic set another Paris Saint-Germain record Friday, scoring twice in a 3-0 win at Nice to become the club's outright all-time leading league scorer.

The 34-year-old Swede is already PSG's all-time leading scorer with 119 goals in all competitions, but his two goals took him to 87 in the league — surpassing the record of 85 he shared with Mustapha Dahleb.

He is also the league's top scorer this season with 12 and best passer with six assists.

Led by the trickery of winger Hatem Ben Arfa, Nice started brightly but faded after Cavani's 35th-minute tap-in, set up by Ibrahimovic from the left.

Swedish midfielder Niklas Hult was sent off seven minutes later for fouling Ibrahimovic, who scored the resulting penalty.

PSG leads second-place Caen by 16 points ahead of this weekend's games.
