    Salvatore Sirigu

    Did not have a notable save to make as the visitors could not manage a meaningful shot on target.

  • Marquinhos

    Marquinhos

    Authoritative whenever the ball was in the air, winning some strong headers, and hardly put a foot wrong on the deck either.

  • Alex

    Alex

    Lucky to escape with a handball in the area, and was out jumped quite cleanly on one particularly dangerous Bastia attack.

  • Lucas Digne

    Lucas Digne

    Supported the attack well and did not neglect his duties in the other half of the field. Won a penalty late on when he was tripped on an overlapping run.

  • Christophe Jallet

    Christophe Jallet

    Nearly stroked his side into an early lead with a half volley that was blocked, and he continued to get forward encouragingly for the rest of the game.

  • Jérémy Menez

    Jérémy Menez

    A little overshadowed by some of the other attacking talents on show for PSG, as he did not quite match the intensity of his team at their best.

  • Blaise Matuidi

    Blaise Matuidi

    Solid enough in the centre of the park, tidying up in front of the defence and showcasing a good range of passing when his team attacked.

  • Adrien Rabiot

    0
    3.00

    Adrien Rabiot

    Rarely troubled in the middle, and used his relative lack of defensive responsibility to make some late runs into the box, and nearly parleyed one such move into a goal, with a low shot that was parried by Landreau.

  • Lucas

    3.00

    Lucas

    Terrorized the visiting defence time and time again, cutting in from the flanks to great effect, and delivering some choice balls into the box. His shooting was badly off, but he did manage to register an assist after whipping in a free kick for Ibrahimovic to head in.

  • Zlatan Ibrahimovic

    Zlatan Ibrahimovic Top of the Match

    The Swede added to his collection of audacious strikes with a sublime heel flick to send his side into a 10th minute lead, which he would double moments later by heading in a free-kick. Subbed at the break, but once again made his mark for PSG.

  • Hervin Ongenda

    Hervin Ongenda

    The 18-year old gave a very positive performance in the attacking third, creating a few good chances and setting up Ibrahimovic's opener with a hopeful flick.

    Gregory van der Wiel

    Did not do anything remarkable in his spell on the pitch, solid and unspectacular.

  • Edinson Cavani

    4.00

    Edinson Cavani

    Replaced Ibrahimovic at half time and had a hard act to follow after the Swede's double. However, he scored once with a sensational solo dribble, and added another late from the spot to give his coach an almighty selection headache.

  • Mickaël Landreau

    Mickaël Landreau Flop of the Match

    Despite the defect, he was having a strong game until the last five minutes, when he conceded a foolish penalty after tripping Digne.

  • Julien Palmieri

    3.00

    Julien Palmieri

    It was a hard game for him, but he did stand out in a good light for an outstanding block on the goalline to prevent Lucas Moura from heading in a surefire third.

  • François Modesto

    2.00

    François Modesto

    Dragged this way and that by Cavani in the second half, and it was hard to keep track of how many times the Uruguayan was able to lose him in the box.

  • Harek Féthi

    Harek Féthi

    Did not far much better than his defensive partner Modesto, as PSG got past him with consummate ease.

  • Gilles Cioni

    1.50

    Gilles Cioni

    Beaten time and time again on the flanks, and conceded a host of dangerous free kicks, one of which led to PSG's second.

  • Romaric
    0
    0
    2.00

    Romaric

    Trusted with the majority of set-pieces, but wasted the most likely route back into the game for the visitors with a series of poor deliveries.

  • Milos Krasic

    2.00

    Milos Krasic

    Apart from one promising dribble in the opening minutes, he was completely invisible from proceedings otherwise.

  • Wahbi Khazri

    3.00

    Wahbi Khazri

    The best of a bad attacking bunch for Bastia. He tried hard on the flanks, getting a few good balls in and dribbling himself into a good shooting opportunity late on.

  • Ryad Boudebouz

    2.00

    Ryad Boudebouz

    Largely a non-factor throughout as his side never had the possession for him to make a difference.

  • Yannick Cahuzac

    Yannick Cahuzac

    Completely overrun in the centre of the park, beaten time and time again as he was left to chase shadows in vain.

  • Gianni Bruno

    3.00

    Gianni Bruno

    Worked very hard up front to put pressure on the centre backs, and was at the end of one of Bastia's lone chances, but headed agonizingly over the bar.
