Report - Ibrahimovic cleared to play in the first leg against Barcelona
According to French publication l‘EQUIPE, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been cleared to play against Barcelona in the first leg of the Champions League quaterfinal in Paris. The forward, who was initially suspended for two matches after his sending off in the first leg tie against Valencia in the previous round, has reportedly seen his ban reduced to one match on the basis of a technicality.
Provided the reports are true, this will allow the Swede two opportunities against his former club. The reduction in the ban is also a big lift for PSG, as the towering striker is their most potent threat, with 30 goals and 10 assists so far this season.
