Goal runs the rule over the star players on show at the Parc des Princes as the Ligue 1 duo canceled each other out on Sunday evening.

By Mohammed Ali

  • Salvatore Sirigu

    3.00

    Salvatore Sirigu

    Beaten by a wonderful header from Falcao, but other than that enjoyed a decent game.

  • Thiago Silva

    3.50

    Thiago Silva

    The solid defender endured a rather unhappy 29th birthday. Saw his evening curtailed by an injury inside 15 minutes after a good showing.

  • Marquinhos

    3.50

    Marquinhos

    The young Brazilian made his Ligue 1 debut, but was rather a little undisciplined, conceding four free-kicks in the first half. After the break, improved decisively to keep out Monaco with important blocks and tackles.

  • Maxwell
    12

    3.00

    Maxwell

    The Brazilian left-back was a potent threat out wide, overlapping Lavezzi, and later Lucas to provide some good deliveries.

  • Gregory van der Wiel

    2.50

    Gregory van der Wiel

    Van der Wiel is enjoying more game time at PSG, having finally fended off the challenge of former captain Christophe Jallet. He was a threat out wide, exchanging lovely touches with Cavani, but tailed off significantly.

  • Thiago Motta
    7
    1
    3.00

    Thiago Motta

    Fresh from his goalscoring exploits in Athens, Motta was a little more subdued in this game, but still offered a powerful presence in the middle of the park.

  • Blaise Matuidi
    5
    2
    3.00

    Blaise Matuidi

    Another solid performance from the France international. Though not as influential in the game, his dynamism showed as he constantly linked with Verratti and Lavezzi.

  • Marco Verratti
    13
    2
    4.00

    Marco Verratti

    The young Italian enjoyed a very good outing at the Parc des Princes. As usual, his passing range was on point, connecting well with Ibrahimovic and fashioning opportunities.

  • Edinson Cavani
    3
    8
    2.50

    Edinson Cavani

    Was rather quiet in the opening exchanges but recovered to connect with his forward team-mates, supplying a couple of good passes. Nevertheless, not on the same wavelength as Ibrahimovic, and spurned a couple of chances.

  • Zlatan Ibrahimovic
    23
    3
    3.50

    Zlatan Ibrahimovic

    Saw his evening get off to the perfect start with a well-taken goal, and in truth he was too much for Monaco to handle, especially in the air. Routinely got himself into fantastic positions, but his finishing let him down.

  • Ezequiel Lavezzi
    9
    1
    3.50

    Ezequiel Lavezzi

    Influential on the left-hand side, the Argentine was a distinct threat out wide, especially in the first half. Superb connection with Maxwell and Ibrahimovic, but forced off with a knock.

Substitutions

  • Zoumana Camara
    3
    1
    2.50

    Zoumana Camara

    The experienced defender came on for the injured Thiago Silva, and was beaten by Falcao for the equaliser. Took him a while to settle.

  • Lucas
    7
    4
    3.50

    Lucas

    Got right into the mix of things after replacing Lavezzi, and gave Monaco more than a few problems on the left wing.

  • Danijel Subasic
    10
    1
    3.00

    Danijel Subasic

    The Croatian goalkeeper was a rock at the back, providing a couple of good saves to deny Ibrahimovic.

  • Fabinho
    1
    2
    2.50

    Fabinho

    The young full-back offered a threat on the flanks, but defensively, he was up against it with Maxwell and Lavezzi posing problems. Replaced with minutes to go.

  • Layvin Kurzawa
    3
    1
    3.00

    Layvin Kurzawa

    Regarded as a revelation since breaking into the Monaco first-team, he definitively struggled in the first half, but recovered from his malaise to limit PSG in the second period.

  • Ricardo Carvalho
    7
    1
    3.00

    Ricardo Carvalho

    The Portuguese international did well up against Ibrahimovic and Cavani, despite lacking for pace. Measured up well against the Swede from aerial positions.

  • Éric Abidal
    6
    2
    2.50

    Éric Abidal

    The France international fared averagely, and struggled keeping PSG and the break-neck speed at which they counter. Showed a couple of decent interventions, but didn't enjoy it all his way tonight.

  • Joao Moutinho
    8
    0
    3.00

    Joao Moutinho

    Like the rest of his side, recovered from a poor opening to improve and dictate play more routinely as the game progressed. Combined well with Carrasco in particular.

  • Lucas Ariel Ocampos
    4
    2
    2.50

    Lucas Ariel Ocampos

    The young Argentine winger was effective in the opening exchanges, delivering deep from out wide, and testing Sirigu with an effort, but struggled for space as PSG began to close in.

  • Yannick Carrasco
    4
    1
    3.50

    Yannick Carrasco

    The young Belgian winger was a potent threat on the flanks, posing PSG a few problems with his pace and effective dribbling. Linked up with Obbadi to engage in effective offensive play.

  • Mounir Obbadi
    2
    1
    3.00

    Mounir Obbadi

    The former Troyes midfielder enjoyed a solid evening in the middle of the park. Comfortable in possession, he was more effective in the holding midfield role, stopping PSG from progressing.

  • Geoffrey Kondogbia
    3
    1
    3.00

    Geoffrey Kondogbia

    The summer signing from Sevilla highlighted his powerful dynamic nature - not too dissimilar to that of Blaise Matuidi - with a good performance. Defensively sound, with a good positional sense. A threat from set-pieces.

  • Radamel Falcao
    17
    5
    3.50

    Radamel Falcao

    Responded brilliantly after Ibrahimovic's first goal to produce a well-taken equaliser. Got right on the end of a fantastic delivery to divert a diving header past Sirigu. Productive up front from thereon in, dropping deeper to involve himself.

Substitutions

  • Andrea Raggi
    1

    2.50

    Andrea Raggi

    Came on with 12 minutes to go and provided an important block.

  • James Rodríguez

    3.00

    James Rodríguez

    Came on midway through the second half. Still finding his best form as well as match fitness, he made a decent impact off the bench.
