Neymar (5) – Mbappé (5) – Messi (4).
Gueye (5) – Paredes (5) – Herrera (4)
Mendes (4) – Kimpembe (6) – Marquinhos (6) – Hakimi (4)
Ratings that seem generally fair for a PSG who especially disappointed even if everything is not missed. The central defense held up rather well given the lack of help, just as Navas saved Paris for a long time with good saves. He probably deserved a better average. The midfielders have them too little, which does not help the attackers. Even if everyone could do better in terms of effort and precision. Neymar still defended more than the others, and perhaps more tried. But he also missed more.
