Zlatan Ibrahimovic a serious doubt for second leg of Chelsea tie

Shaun Botterill

Paris Saint-Germain's president expects Zlatan Ibrahimovic to miss a few weeks.

According to Nasser Al-Khelaifi, the president of Paris Saint-Germain, Zlatan Ibrahimovic's injury is serious enough that he will miss a few weeks of action. He pulled up with an apparent hamstring injury in the second half of Wednesday's match against Chelsea and now looks to be a serious doubt for the second leg of the tie.

Tom Williams passed along the info, in English. Here is the original tweet from Le Parisien.

Edinson Cavani will likely move into the starting center forward role in Ibrahimovic's absence, though he was poor throughout Wednesday's game. PSG will be counting on him to put together a complete performance in London next week.

Thankfully for PSG, they won't need Ibrahimovic domestically. They're 13 points clear of Monaco and will coast to a Ligue 1 title with or without him.
