Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored a hat-trick as Paris Saint-Germain won 3-1 at home to Nice in France's Ligue 1 on Saturday.

Ibrahimovic opened the scoring in the 39th minute, turning in Gregory van der Wiel's cross with a delicate first touch under heavy pressure past Nice goalkeeper Lucas Veronese.

The second was a 57th-minute penalty, which Ibrahimovic tucked away coolly to his left.

Ibrahimovic scored his third in the 75th minute, powerfully heading in Lucas Moura's cross after Nice had made it 2-1 just moments before. 

The victory sent PSG five points clear atop the Ligue 1 table. Second-place Lille were set to play at Guingamp later Saturday.
