Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Zlatan Ibrahimovic? Zlatan Ibrahimovic! Zlatan. Ibrahimovic.
It's win or go home time for Dynamo Kiev. Or stay home time, I suppose, since this match will take place in Ukraine. The good news, as far as Oleh Blohkin and company are concerned, is that they're facing an amusingly out-of-form Paris Saint-Germain side. The visitors have managed five points in their last five domestic matches, and are currently sitting in third place in Ligue 1 -- not where France's most expensively assembled side would have been expecting to find themselves in mid-November.
The bad news? Zlatan Ibrahimovic isn't suspended in Champions League play, and as England suddenly realised last week when they got hammered by the Great Swede, Zlatan Ibrahimovic might actually be the reason the sport is played. So far, Ibrahimovic has two goals and four assists in European play this year, which complement his ten goals in domestic play. There are a whole host of other players buzzing around this PSG side that pale in comparison to Zlatan -- guys you may have heard of like Thiago Silva and Javier Pastore.
Yeah, I'd expect that team to win.
