The Italian custodian was once more a safe pair of hands as he enjoyed a rather quiet game. Competent when called upon, but Troyes did not offer much of a threat. Throwing ability fantastic, and even lead to the third goal.
The Brazilian was deployed in midfield this afternoon, and did not disappoint as he scored the opening goal. Appeared comfortable, and offered an attacking threat.
The Brazilian was not as serene as his compatriot, but was more robust in nullifying the threats posed by Bahebeck and Nivet. Did well aerially.
In the squad at preferred left-back position, the veteran thrived before tailing off as the game wore on. Solid, if not unspectacular.
Typically sound defensively, the captain of the side was competent and comfortable at the back, once more.

The right-back was rather ineffectual attacking-wise, but offered a solid run in defence. Kept Troyes’ full-backs at distance.
The Argentine was more active in the first half, as he attempted several key passes to instigate opportunities. Booked, and subbed in favour of Nene in the second half. PSG were more creative without him.
Ancelotti spoke of his annoyance with the 20-year-old, and once more it was easy to see why. Another early booking and rash tackling enabled Troyes to get in control in the midfield. Should’ve been sent off after a rash challenge against Bahebeck which luckily did not result in a penalty. Managed to improve, with his passing unsettling the visitors.
The midfielder has come on leaps and bounds lately, and once more showed he is indispensable. Made the middle of the park his own with great passing, and also scored the second goal in emphatic fashion.
The former Napoli striker did not find the net, as was the case in Kiev this week, but he was active, and pursuing chances. Made an assist for Ibrahimovic’s 4th, and can generally be content with his performance.
The star of the show, as is often the case in France nowadays. The 31-year-old shrugged off a static first-half to net a double – including his 200th league goal. Linked up well with team-mates, but it is evident that PSG are all the more poorer without him.
The nephew of France legend Lilian Thuram looked decent over the course of 90 minutes. Will be disappointed to not have kept out the opener. Produced a couple of fine stops, but once more could not find an answer to the power of Ibrahimovic.
The right-back did not manage the balance of attacking and defending well, as he was left open for large periods. Defending was decent, but couldn’t stop PSG’s counter attacking.
The 22-year-old was efficient early on, but with Nene’s introduction – he was left cruelly exposed, which led to three second-half goals.
N’Sakala could not deal with Lavezzi all evening, as much of the play situated down his flank. A poor showing from the player who was overawed by the occasion.
Managed to keep Ibrahimovic in check in the first-half, but like his team-mates, the floodgates would eventually open. Average at best.
The 27-year-old appeared enterprising, but could not match the rigor of the Parisian midfield. Offered something different attacking-wise, but more often than not was not on the same wave-lengths of his team-mates.
The Brazilian was solid in the first half, linking well with Bahebeck in leading the counter, but struggled in the second – leading to his substitution.
The number four couldn’t manage the force of Ibrahimovic for large periods of the game, but was one of the better Troyes players, as he was on the attacking charge regularly.
The former Caen man is usually the talisman for Troyes, but he was effectively kept quiet by an efficient defence. Only had a few attempts, which did not trouble Sirigu.
The Troyes captain led by example, but like his team-mates would be undone by more esteemed opponents. Defensively, he was sound as he got stuck in. Upstaged by Matuidi, however.
The on-loan PSG striker was poor in the first half, as he couldn’t seriously trouble Salvatore Sirigu. Should’ve had a penalty after Verratti challenge, but nonetheless not on par.
Made return from injury with 18 minutes left to go, but like Rabiot – more of a passenger with the game already won. Involved in a few defensive blocks to ensure clean sheet.
The Brazilian’s introduction was the reason for the side’s far better showing in the second half. Troyes couldn’t handle his superb passing as he cut open the defence time and again.
