The Colombian goalkeeper was in good form to deny Menez and Ibrahimovic, but was able to count on his brilliant defence on a few occasions.
The former Olympique Lyonnais man was at times a peripheral figure, but his crossing ensured that Nice could trouble the visitors on more than one occasion. Was particularly active before being substituted for Abriel.
The Serbian centre-back marshalled the likes of Ibrahimovic and Lavezzi well, with his tackling and superb blocking ensuring that the first half remained scoreless. Carried his form into the second half too.
Like Pejcinovic, the former Olympique Marseille man was a solid rock in the first half, as he thwarted Menez with a series of blocks, interceptions and tackles. A fantastic 90 minutes.
The young defender was competent on the far side, as he constantly linked up well with Jeremy Pied and threaten down the right wing. Should have done better on the defensive side of things, however.
The left-back was superb in his attacking forays, and, whilst he was rather average at the back, he contributed well to Nice’s comeback surge in the second half.
Quieter than his midfield team-mates, Traore did contribute well to defending his side in the middle of the park. Solid, if not spectacular.
The Nice captain was assured in his duties this evening, as he asserted his authority in a fiercely competitive midfield. Shielded his defenders well, as PSG threatened late on.
A superbly taken goal which proved to be Nice’s winner - Eysseric was a constant threat throughout. Creatively, he stifled the back four, and will be happy with his performance.
The former Dijon man was probably Nice’s best attacking player in the first half, as he tussled for large periods with Jallet. His dribbling and passing was a particular highlight, even if his set piece deliveries were a bit wide of the mark. Scored the opening goal, and was a genuine threat throughout.
The Argentine striker has been a real revelation for the Cote d’Azur side, and this continued this evening. His trickery led to the opener, as he gave the PSG back four more than a headache. A fantastic game.
In the side for the injured Salvatore Sirigu, Douchez endured a difficult game, and remained a liability with Bautheac’s crosses. Could be questioned with Eysseric’s winner.
The Brazilian was the main reason for PSG’s cup exit on Tuesday, but did not manage to redeem himself with a strong showing. Positioning on both Nice’s goals was rather questionable.
Perhaps the weak link in an otherwise strong Parisian side. Armand looked suspect at the back, and gave away a needless yellow against Pied. Substituted in favour of Pastore.
Not his best game in a PSG shirt by all accounts, as he was well out-muscled in a feisty midfield. Dropped back to left-back, but it did not improve his performance.
The former Chelsea man was the better of the two centre-backs, as he remained solid throughout, despite those around him being exposed to the fast nature of the host’s attacks.
The right-back returned to the starting line-up, and was given a particular headache by Bautheac. Nevertheless, his aerial ability showed, as he denied the hosts on more than a few occasions. Replaced by Van der Wiel later in the second half.
Matuidi had previously been one of PSG’s best players of the season, but his reputation took a nosedive with two silly yellow cards - one for pushing over Ospina, as he was sent off to cap off a rather below-par performance.
The defensive midfielder started brightly, getting stuck in, but embarked on a steady decline throughout before being subbed in favour of Hoarau.
A decent performance from Lavezzi, who should have broken the deadlock. Active throughout, he didn’t shy away from challenges, but was not on his best form.
Ibrahimovic might have scored a brilliant free-kick to equalise, but it does not hide away the fact that it was a poor performance from the Swede. Isolated, he took time to get into the match, before lashing out towards the end, and escaping a red card.
Menez‘s return from injury was a welcome tonic for a flagging PSG side, and it showed once more. His creativity is second-to-none, but his team-mates were not on the same wavelength.
