BORDEAUX, France (AP) - Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic moved to within one goal of Carlos Bianchi’s record for a French league season after scoring his 36th in a 1-1 draw at Bordeaux on Wednesday.

The Sweden international is the first player to score more than 30 in a season in France’s top division since Bianchi managed 37 in 1977-78.

Ibrahimovic put the visitors in front with a header in the 59th minute. Nicolas Pallois volleyed the equalizer seven minutes later.

PSG, which leads Lyon by 28 points ahead of Saturday’s final round of matches, sealed a fourth consecutive French title this season. Laurent Blanc’s team can replicate the domestic treble it achieved last season after winning the League Cup last month. It faces Marseille in the French Cup final on May 21.
