Paris St Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic admits his team-mates are under pressure to perform as they head into Saturday's clash with Guingamp on the back of a sluggish start to the new Ligue 1 season.

Laurent Blanc's men started their campaign with two draws followed by last weekend's 2-1 win at Nantes, and Ibrahimovic believes the players are still getting to grips with their new boss.

Ibrahmovic said: "We are still learning how he wants us to play. It is the beginning of the season and we are struggling a little bit, but it is in these moments we learn the most.

"There is a lot of pressure around him at PSG because of the investments we have made, and we share it with him. We have high hopes, because I don't think only one trophy would satisfy our owners."

The hosts will be hot favourites to dispose of newly-promoted Guingamp, who started their new top-flight campaign with two losses before claiming a 2-0 win over Lorient.

Guingamp coach Jocelyn Gourvennec admitted his side faced a "David and Goliath" situation, but will travel in confidence with in-form striker Mustapha Yatabare, who scored both goals last week.

Gourvennec said: "This is a match between the two extremes of Ligue 1, the largest French city with a stratospheric budget against a small town of 8,000 people.

"But my players know it is more fun to go and play world-class players instead of Ligue 2. Even if there is a big difference in levels on paper, I have no doubts we will go there and have some chances."
