Produced the save of the match to deny Gameiro in the first half, but the Cameroon shot-stopper was not stretched as regularly as he doubtless envisaged. Towards the end he made a sequence of very fine saves, though.
Gave a solid performance in the heart of the Nancy midfield and made sure he laid the foundation for the home side to give a surprisingly strong account of themselves in this clash.
Read the game well and was physically robust enough to withstand the pressure exerted by Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The Brazilian rarely looked out of his comfort zone.
Has not always been at his best this season, but the former Bolton man led by example in the heart of the rearguard and was a rallying point for his side.
Raided forward with purpose down the left-hand side and sent in a fizzing low drive that was a statement of intent from the 19-year-old. Defensively, he was given a hard time by Menez but managed to hold his own in the main.
Raids down his flank were rare, but he was inevitably able to prevent any serious danger developing when danger did threaten. A solid - if unspectacular - performance from the full-back.
It was a massive show of faith in the teenager that he was asked to start, despite a lack of forward options in the Nancy squad. He looked confident, but when given shooting chances he failed to find the target.
Stoic destructive performance from the former Monaco man. Did not allow himself to be overwhelmed by the task at hand and was rarely beaten.
Has failed to fire too often this season, yet he looked effervescent early on in this encounter, wasting no time to hit the post in the first minute. Showed some of the imagination that had been missing from Nancy’s play in recent weeks but was once again wasteful with his final pass.
His quick feet were able to carve out some shooting chances, but the former Monaco man was off target with a shot in the opening stages. Booked for a second-half foul on Gregory van der Weil.
A lively performance from the attacking midfielder, though he was unable to prompt anything decisive in this encounter.
Although Nancy threatened PSG, the direct menace to the Italian goalkeeper was relatively slight. He commanded his rearguard impressively and handled crossed balls well. Nothing more could be asked of him.
Posed a threat from set pieces, with a firm header in the first half drawing a fine save from the home goalkeeper. Still does not look at his best defensively and was stretched on several occasions, though he was very strong physically.
Continues to look extremely assured in the heart of the PSG rearguard. Even when all around him is manic, the Brazilian is a calming presence.
G. van der Wiel
Once again had a difficult outing in the right-back slot. When Nancy were allowed to attack him, he looked rather frail but the Netherlands international did have a better match going forward.
Deployed in the left-back slot in the place of the rotated Maxwell, yet the veteran gave a measured performance down his flank. Any threat down this channel was relatively infrequent, though he did not give much support to the attack.
Picked up a heavy knock on his ankle early in the match but battled on manfully and did not let this bump affect his dynamism.
Failed to stamp his authority on the first half and was drawn into a couple of defensive errors that meant he was in danger of being dismissed. Doubtless with this in mind, Carlo Ancelotti pulled the young Italian at the break.
Produced one excellent surge down the right-hand side that led to a good chance for Ibrahimovic, but was too peripheral to make a big impression on the game.
Ultimately the match winner with a searing shot from the edge of the box. Showed some sparkling touches around the box, but failed to provide a direct threat on Ndy Assembe’s goal on a regular basis in the early stages, only coming to life late on. A backheel to Menez in the first half was a particular highlight.
Had a great chance to open the scoring on the hour mark when a ball broke kindly to him in the box, but the effort was superbly blocked. The striker largely toiled to find space and was replaced by Bodmer at half time.
PSG’s star in midweek was their most constant menace at the Stade Marcel-Picot. He was always willing to try a dribble, though it was one of those nights on which little came off for the winger. Produced a nice bit of skill early in the second half to fashion a chance for himself, but shot well over.
