The goalkeeper was below-par this evening, as he was easily beaten by Ibrahimovic and Lavezzi. Was uncertain for large periods as he raced off his line, and also spilled Pastore’s effort into the path of Zlatan for his hat-trick.
A poor night from Angoua after making a bright start. Deteriorated throughout the second half to the point where he was easily beaten by Lavezzi for the fourth.
The captain tested Sirigu on more than one occasion and looked assured in his duties. Taken aback by the sheer power of PSG’s midfield in the second half.
A night to forget from the defender, who was beaten by Ibrahimovic time and again.
The left-back was largely restricted to a defensive role, as PSG embarked on an onslaught, but he performed admirably and threw himself at everything he could.
Like Bong, the right-back did well under extreme pressure and unlike his team-mate, he managed to attack on occasions. Linked well with Dossevi on the right wing.
He was supposed to be the creative hub of the Valenciennes attack, but Danic could not replicate his previous form in tonight’s game. Stretchered off with a serious injury.
The Algerian had a decent game and enjoyed a positive start to the match, carving out several opportunities. Tailed off as the game wore on.
Valenciennes’ best player by some distance. He was a constant threat down the flank and never tired, giving Maxwell plenty to think about.
Instigated the first real chance of the night, but that was to be his only attacking contribution. Error-prone in midfield, he constantly let the likes of Pastore and Matuidi in with his wayward passing.
A. Le Tallec
Too isolated. The former Liverpool and Auxerre man could not capitalise on the deliveries from Danic and Dossevi. Was well marshalled by Thiago Silva.
The goalkeeper enjoyed a good night at the Stade du Hainaut. Alert as ever, and managed to keep out anything that Valenciennes threw at him.
A defensive masterclass from the PSG captain. Superb throughout the course of the game, he alone performed much of the defensive tasks as the side weathered the Valenciennes’ storm. Brilliant game.
The right-back couldn’t replicate his form from the weekend. Distinctly average, his crossing did not threaten Valenciennes, and was at times struggling with the likes of Dossevi.
The full-back was given the run-around by Dossevi, as he struggled to make an impact in this game. Improved late on, but this was just not his night.
A quite first half from the Brazilian, who was upstaged by his partner Thiago Silva. A few good interceptions, he limped off just before half-time.
The Italy international has seamlessly reintegrated back into the lineup after a lengthy injury. Confident on the ball, he screened his defence well, before being taken off.
Typically comfortable in midfield, Matuidi returned from suspension to assert his authority in the middle of the park. Plays with more freedom alongside Motta.
Not as creative as his previous games, but Menez was still very productive on the flanks. His pace caused one or two problems for Valenciennes, with his deliveries and ability to pin-point team-mates a major asset. Could’ve had a goal had it not been for a shock miss. Withdrawn for Chantome.
Confirmation that the former Palermo star has fully regained his confidence and form after a fruitful first half. The second was rather average from the Argentine, but it is intriguing to see him return to such a level after a torrid month.
Lavezzi was rather ruthless on the wing, setting up Ibrahimovic to cap off a good game. He has really come on leaps and bounds since his underwhelming start to life in the capital. Now displaying the flashes of brilliance he showed so consistently with Napoli in 2011-12.
The hero on a night of positives for Paris Saint-Germain. Maintained his man-of-the-match performance from Saturday with a fantastic hat-trick to destroy the hosts. Valenciennes just couldn’t deal with him.
Came on for Le Tallec with six minutes to go, but by then the match had already been settled. No impact from the midfielder.
Replaced the creative and lively Danic midway through the second half. Tried his best to influence the game, but struggled to make an impact.
Late cameo from the striker, who did not have time to influence proceedings.
The centre-back came on for an injured Alex, and enjoyed a rather quiet second half. Did his job adquately, but didn't have much to deal with.
The Italian came on midway through the second half, and immediately made an impact. Passing was superb and PSG should’ve added more goals from his deliveries.
Replaced Menez with minutes to go. Decent cameo from the midfielder, who didn’t have much time to make an impact.
