Does PSG striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic bottle it against his former clubs?
The PSG striker comes up against Barcelona in the Champions League tonight
There was a time when some questioned Zlatan Ibrahimovic's wizardry against the best sides.
Four goals against England and a string of world class performances in the Champions League have dispelled that notion - but with a two-legged tie against former employers Barcelona on the horizon - it's time to look at whether he's been able to cast his magic against his former clubs.
The former Malmo, Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona and AC Milan player has been involved in 18 matches against former employers - but his record will be a concern for his current side PSG ahead of tonight's Champions League tie in Paris.
