Laurent Blanc's champions recorded a very comfortable win away to Reims courtesy of goals from Lucas Moura, Jeremy Menez and Zlatan Ibrahimovic

By Mohammed Ali

  • Kossi Agassa

    1.50

    Kossi Agassa

    Touted as one of the most reliable goalkeepers in Ligue 1 - that reputation went out of the window tonight with a shoddy performance, which was pitomized by PSG's third, as he gifted Ibrahimovic a goal.

  • Mohamed Fofana

    Mohamed Fofana

    Fofana struggled with the pace and power of the PSG forwards, and was hesitant for much of the game. Not convincing at all.

  • Franck Signorino

    Franck Signorino

    The left back had a job on his hands, directly against Lucas Moura. Much of PSG's successes came down his wing, and he was disappointing.

  • Mickäel Tacalfred

    Mickäel Tacalfred

    Only high point was his stunning strike which was tipped over by Sirigu, but other than that - Tacalfred was overrun by the domination imposed by the opposition.

  • Aissa Mandi

    Aissa Mandi

    Fared better than his defensive counterparts, but only marginally. Average at the back. but got up to threaten at the other end on occasions.

  • Grzegorz Krychowiak

    2.00

    Grzegorz Krychowiak

    The match-winner last year, and scorer of the only goal the last time PSG last lost a match, tonight he failed to emulate those achievements. Poor and sloppy in midfield, and skied his penalty.

  • Antoine Devaux

    2.00

    Antoine Devaux

    Disappointed in the middle, and failed to contend with the pressure set on him by Motta and Verratti. Lost a couple of balls, and caught out on more than a few occasions.

  • Mads Winther Albæk

    Mads Winther Albæk

    The combative Norwegian midfielder initially looked bright, but couldn't impose himself nor assert his authority. As disappointing as the rest of his side.

  • Eliran Atar

    1.00

    Eliran Atar

    Was largely a spectator for the vast majority of the time he was on the pitch. Offered little.

  • Gaëtan Courtet
    1
    1
    1.50

    Gaëtan Courtet

    Didn't get himself into key positions, and was largely isolated up front. Didn't help that he was afforded little service.

  • Floyd Ayité

    3.00

    Floyd Ayité

    Perhaps Reims' best player tonight. Even though he struggled in the finishing department, Ayite was everywhere - from creating chances on the wing, to tracking back and dispossessing the opposition. Impressive.

Substitutions

  • Prince Oniangue

    Prince Oniangue

    Late substitute in the game.

  • Odaïr Fortes

    Odaïr Fortes

    Came on in the second half but couldn't make an impact.

  • N. de Préville

    N. de Préville

    Only highlight as a substitute was to produce a poor shot at goal.

  • Salvatore Sirigu

    4.50

    Salvatore Sirigu

    Another top evening from the Italy international who was spectacular at the back. Faced with few efforts, he nonetheless pulled off a couple of top saves - most notably from Tacalfred.

  • Thiago Silva
    12
    0
    3.50

    Thiago Silva

    The Brazil captain again excelled at the back with a commanding performance. Did his job well, as expected. A calm figure in defense.

  • Alex

    3.00

    Alex

    Alex enjoyed another impressive performance at the back, though, truth be told, he was only faced with problems largely coming from set-pieces. Nevertheless, went about his duties well.

  • Lucas Digne
    7
    1
    3.00

    Lucas Digne

    Came into the side ahead of Maxwell, and the young left back still has some work to do to match his senior. An encouraging, if unassuming game.

  • Christophe Jallet
    5
    1
    2.50

    Christophe Jallet

    Had initially impressed this evening, being far more attacking and successful in the final third. Linked well with Ibrahimovic and Lucas Moura constantly, but tired considerably in the second half. Nowhere near as consistent.

  • Jérémy Menez
    8
    1
    4.00

    Jérémy Menez

    Another to come into the side, Menez didn't let Blanc down despite the fact he was essentially kicked out of the game. Produced a well-taken goal too and a clear sign that he was back to his previous best.

  • Thiago Motta
    8
    1
    3.50

    Thiago Motta

    Motta fared superbly in the middle of the park, creating space for the forwards to run into, with another commanding performance.

  • Marco Verratti
    9
    0
    3.00

    Marco Verratti

    Conceded a penalty, but that was the only blip in Verratti's game, as the Italian was the creative hub for the champions this evening. Combined well with Rabiot.

  • Adrien Rabiot
    6
    1
    3.00

    Adrien Rabiot

    The U-20 World Cup winner was handed another opportunity to shine, and managed well. Movement is a key asset of his, getting into key positions and bamboozling the opposition.

  • Lucas
    16
    0
    4.50

    Lucas

    Staked another claim to be handed a starting spot ahead of Lavezzi. A powerful performance, reflected by his blistering first goal. Threatening throughout.

  • Zlatan Ibrahimovic
    13
    1
    3.50

    Zlatan Ibrahimovic

    Came into the game on the back of World Cup disappointment, but one thing didn't change - his appetite for goals. Gifted one in the end. Industrious, though unsuccessful throughout the majority of the game.

Substitutions

  • Blaise Matuidi
    2
    1

    Blaise Matuidi

    Came on in the second half in place of Adrien Rabiot.

  • Javier Pastore

    Javier Pastore

    A brief cameo with minutes to go.

  • Ezequiel Lavezzi

    Ezequiel Lavezzi

    Replaced Jeremy Menez late in the second half.
