Paris - All eyes will be on Zlatan Ibrahimovic as Paris Saint-German get their Champions League Group A campaign underway against his boyhood club Malmo in the French capital on Tuesday.

Since leaving Sweden for Ajax in 2001 he has become one of the most feared strikers in world football, but time is running out for the 33-year-old to add a Champions League winners' medal to his collection despite domestic titles with Juventus, Inter Milan, AC Milan and Barcelona.

His current deal with PSG runs out at the end of the season and speculation is rife that he will move on, with the Sweden captain saying earlier this that while he was happy with the French champions he had been approached by former club AC Milan.

For now, though, PSG coach Laurent Blanc knows his side's best hopes of a long run rest with Ibrahimovic being fit and firing, the reason he sat out PSG's last game against Bordeaux after picking up an abdominal strain on international duty.

In Zlatan's absence PSG dropped their first two points of the season in a 2-2 draw with Bordeaux after a couple of goalkeeping howlers from Kevin Trapp, but the Parisians remain top of Ligue 1 with 13 points from a possible 15.
