PARIS (AP):

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored the winner as Paris Saint-Germain reached the French Cup final with a scrappy 1-0 win over Lorient yesterday.

Ibrahimovic slotted home his 42nd goal this season in all competitions from the edge of the area with 15 minutes left after PSG had struggled to create chances.

Lorient wasted a good opportunity to take the lead just three minutes before Ibrahimovic's opener when Benjamin Moukandjo lost his duel with PSG goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu.

Already crowned French champions for a fourth straight time, PSG are aiming to replicate the domestic treble they achieved last season. Laurent Blanc's team will take on Lille in Saturday's League Cup final.
