Zlatan Ibrahimovic fired a warning to Champions League quarter-final opponents Chelsea with an emphatic performance as Paris Saint-Germain extended their lead at the top of Ligue 1.

The Swede set up Thiago Motta for the winner at Lorient on Friday, his side's eighth straight victory in all competitions, before keeping his cool when confronted by a pitch invader at full-time.

The PSG fan slipped on the turf as he approached Ibrahimovic and almost upended the striker with his inadvertent slide tackle.

Ibrahimovic handed the fan his shirt and was then mobbed with hugs and kisses from the appreciative youngster.

The 1-0 victory moved the defending champions to 73 points from 30 games, 11 points clear of second-placed Monaco who have a game in hand.

PSG and Chelsea were thrown together in Friday's Champions League quarter-final draw, with the first legs to be played over April 1-2 and the return legs over April 8-9.
