Goal reviews the players on show at Stade Chaban-Delmas as Laurent Blanc's men outclassed the hosts thanks to goals from Blaise Matuidi and Lucas Moura

By Mohammed Ali

  • Cédric Carrasso

    Cédric Carrasso

    Could be questioned for both goals, especially the second, but other than that, Carrasso pulled off a couple of supreme stops – most notably the double save which denied Ibrahimovic and Digne.

  • Henrique

    Henrique

    A testing evening from the Brazilian defender. Booked after a poor challenge, and almost sent off after a hand on Ibrahimovic. Failed to track the run of Matuidi for the goal.

  • Ludovic Sané

    Ludovic Sané

    Like Henrique, struggled with the level of pace from the PSG forwards. Fared worse as the game continued as PSG took complete control towards the end of the second half.

  • Lucas Orban

    Lucas Orban

    The Argentine defender endured a woeful debut. Tasked with the daunting test of limiting Lucas Moura’s movement on the wing, he failed miserably. Despite a couple of tackles, he played a bizarre offside trap which gifted Lucas an easy second. Poor positional sense.

  • Mariano
    0

    2.00

    Mariano

    Better going forward rather than at the back, his decision making let him down. Had a brilliant chance to cause damage on the wing but faltered. Not on the same wavelength as the forwards.

  • Ludovic Obraniak
    0

    2.50

    Ludovic Obraniak

    Not as influential going forward compared to previous games. Had a lone shot saved well by Sirigu before tailing off in the second half.

  • Landry N'Guemo

    2.00

    Landry N'Guemo

    Struggled in the middle of the park, losing ground on Matuidi. Looked decent enough in possession nonetheless, which can’t be said of his team-mates.

  • André Biyogo Poko

    André Biyogo Poko

    The powerful midfielder was at the forefront of Bordeaux’s endeavours - but they were few in number. Tracked back well to help his defence in the first half, but out of his depth in the second.

  • D. Rolan
    0
    1
    1.50

    D. Rolan

    The Uruguayan forward was handed a rare start ahead of Maurice-Belay but struggled throughout in what was a very disappointing night. Likely to return to the bench after failing to impress.

  • Henri Saivet
    0
    1
    2.00

    Henri Saivet

    The highly inconsistent winger endured another off-night. Poor decision making and a rather lax performance capped off a disappointing match, highlighted best towards the end of the first half when foolishly running the ball out of play.

  • Cheick Tidiane Diabaté
    0
    1
    2.00

    Cheick Tidiane Diabaté

    The big Malian striker was ineffective for large periods of the game. Didn’t really get the service he desired, but was easily beaten by Alex for his one notable chance.

Substitutions

  • Nicolas Maurice-Belay

    0

    Nicolas Maurice-Belay

    The Bordeaux forward came on to try and revitalise a misfiring side, but other than a brief chance, failed to really assert himself.

  • Hadi Sacko

    Hadi Sacko

    Came on for Diabate, but couldn’t haul Bordeaux back into the game.

  • Jussiê

    Jussiê

    A bystander after coming on late in the second half.

  • Salvatore Sirigu

    0
    3.00

    Salvatore Sirigu

    Once more had virtually nothing to do except to save a long range effort from Ludovic Obraniak.

  • Thiago Silva

    0
    3.00

    Thiago Silva

    Another good performance from the PSG captain, despite his midweek excursions. Comfortable at the back, solid over the 90 minutes.

  • Alex
    1
    1
    2.50

    Alex

    Given a testing time with Cheikh Diabate, and struggled with the aerial threat that he posed on occasions. Nevertheless, he ultimately won that battle with a superb sliding tackle. Decent throughout.

  • Lucas Digne
    1
    0
    2.50

    Lucas Digne

    Almost had a horrendous debut, limping inside five minutes and looking jittery. But Digne grew in confidence, and enjoyed a good performance on the left.

  • Gregory van der Wiel
    1
    0
    2.50

    Gregory van der Wiel

    The Dutchman is improving as he keeps out Jallet in the line-up. Comfortable evening, but still struggled on occasions.

  • Thiago Motta
    1
    0
    3.00

    Thiago Motta

    Decent performance from Motta, with his passing and good sense of ball retention contributing to PSG’s comfortable win. His set-pieces, however, leave a lot to be desired.

  • Blaise Matuidi
    3
    0
    3.50

    Blaise Matuidi

    Matuidi continues to impress in the middle of the park. Fantastic movement for such a powerful midfielder, highlighted in his starting the move which led to his first goal via Ibrahimovic’s clever pass.

  • Marco Verratti
    3
    0
    3.00

    Marco Verratti

    Even though he was eventually booked, Verratti showed a bit of discipline in his play. Superb as ever in possession, he carved up the Bordeaux defence for PSG’s second.

  • Lucas

    Lucas

    The star of the evening by a clear mile. Scored his first PSG goal tonight to cap off a stunning performance. Bordeaux couldn’t handle his pace and trickery as the Brazilian dazzled on the wing. Gave namesake Lucas Orban the complete runaround. One fears for Pastore’s future in the team after such a display.

  • Zlatan Ibrahimovic
    10
    0
    3.50

    Zlatan Ibrahimovic

    Struggled initially, but in typical Ibrahimovic style, he turned it around with a moment of magic to set up Matuidi for his goal. Finished strongly before being subbed for Cavani.

  • Hervin Ongenda

    0
    4.00

    Hervin Ongenda

    The 18-year-old was handed a competitive debut after a couple of good cameos, and he looked every bit a future star for PSG. Fantastic movement off the ball, and routinely got himself into good positions. Perhaps lacking with conviction but at that age in this competitive league, that’s a worry for another day.

Substitutions

  • Adrien Rabiot

    Adrien Rabiot

    Could’ve had a goal during his time on the pitch, but got amongst the action late on.

  • Kingsley Chioma

    Kingsley Chioma

    The young PSG teenager looked bright in his brief cameo.

  • Edinson Cavani

    Edinson Cavani

    Showed glimpses of his quality in what little time he had on the pitch.
