PARIS — 

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored again as Paris Saint-Germain beat Lorient 3-1 on Wednesday to set a new French league record of 33 league games unbeaten.

After creating the opening goal for strike partner Edinson Cavani early in the first half, Ibrahimovic grabbed his league-leading 20th of the season shortly after the break as PSG eclipsed the record set by Nantes 21 years ago.

Left-back Layvin Kurzawa added another goal midway through the second half to cap a fine night for PSG, which leads second-place Monaco by a mammoth 24 points after just 24 games.

PSG has not lost in the league since a 3-2 defeat away to Bordeaux on March 15.
