    Could do little about the goal, which was an excellent finish and made a decent stop to deny Morata.

  • Alex

    Alex

    Robbed of possession in his own half early on but was excellent going forward, putting in some great crosses and sending one shot narrowly wide.

    Gregory van der Wiel Flop of the Match

    Didn’t do much going forward and was found missing on more than one occasion when Madrid looked to counter.

    Lucas Digne

    Robbed of possession in his own half early on but was excellent going forward, putting in some great crosses and sending one shot narrowly wide.

  • Thiago Silva

    Thiago Silva

    Another accomplished performance from the Brazilian. PSG struggled with through balls early on but he made some great interceptions and blocks.

  • Blaise Matuidi

    Blaise Matuidi

    Was combative as ever in midfield and drove his team on well, but missed a golden opportunity.

  • Marco Verratti

    2.50

    Marco Verratti

    Showcased his talent with a tidy performance linking attack and midfield and going close to scoring with a great run and show.

  • Thiago Motta
    0
    0
    3.00

    Thiago Motta

    Picked up a knock early on and seemed to be off the boil, failing to contribute going forward to help stop Madrid on the counter.

  • Edinson Cavani
    0
    0
    3.00

    Edinson Cavani

    Got into a number of great positions throughout, but his wasteful finishing was ultimately the difference between the two sides.

  • Ezequiel Lavezzi
    0
    0
    3.50

    Ezequiel Lavezzi

    Gave Madrid all sorted of problems early on with his incisive running but missed a great one-on-one opportunities.

  • Zlatan Ibrahimovic
    0
    0
    2.50

    Zlatan Ibrahimovic

    Playing in a more withdrawn role, the Swede set up his team-mates on several occasions with some great link-up play.

Substitutions

  • Marquinhos
    0
    0
    2.50

    Marquinhos

    Came on at half-time and didn't have much to do at the back. Failed to extend his excellent scoring record, despite PSG's waves of corners.

  • Maxwell
    0
    0
    2.00

    Maxwell

    Failed to attack as well as Digne before him but made a great interception with Benzema waiting to tuck a cross home.

  • Zoumana Camara

    2.00

    Zoumana Camara

    Came on for 17 minutes but was barely noticeable.

  • Adrien Rabiot

    0
    3.00

    Adrien Rabiot

    Neat and tidy in the centre of the park and came desperately close to an equaliser with a header late on.

  • Jérémy Menez
    0
    0
    3.00

    Jérémy Menez

    Was a constant threat after coming on with his incisive running and could have had a goal or an assist on another day.

  • Javier Pastore
    0
    0
    2.00

    Javier Pastore

    Came on to provide a bit of a spark in the final third, but barely touched the ball. Did nothing to stake his claim for a regular spot.

  • Lucas

    0
    2.50

    Lucas

    Got himself into decent positions but failed to produce anything telling. A microcosm of his time at PSG so far.

  • Kingsley Chioma
    0
    2
    3.00

    Kingsley Chioma

    Looks a real prospect, with his pace. Almost set up Ongenda and had Madrid's defence beaten for pace.

  • Hervin Ongenda
    0
    0
    3.00

    Hervin Ongenda

    The youngster had one shot blocked by the intelligent Carvajal and was showed he has a fair bit of talent.

  • Diego López Rodríguez
    0
    0
    3.00

    Diego López Rodríguez

    Made some great saves to deny Cavani and Lavezzi and was key to Madrid surviving PSG’s first-half pressure.

  • Arbeloa
    0

    2.50

    Arbeloa

    Lavezzi gave him a busy time down the left, but he dealt well, making a few good interceptions and helping to shackle Ibrahimovic.

  • Nacho Fernández

    0
    2.00

    Nacho Fernández

    One moment of miscommunication with Lopez, but led the defence well, particularly with Nacho struggling.

  • Sergio Ramos
    0
    0
    2.50

    Sergio Ramos

    Had genuine problems keeping up with PSG’s all-star attack.

  • Casado
    0
    0
    3.00

    Casado

    Initially struggled to deal with Cavani down the right, but grew into the game well, impressing on the counterattack.

  • Asier Illarramendi
    0
    0
    2.50

    Asier Illarramendi

    Failed to provide adequate defensive cover during his 45 minutes and hardly excelled with his passing.

  • José Rodríguez
    0
    0
    3.00

    José Rodríguez

    Started rather quietly, but looked very bright towards the end of the half, striking the post once and sending a great shot just over.

  • Xabi Alonso
    0
    0
    2.50

    Xabi Alonso

    Displayed his usual array of classy passing but almost let himself down with a lax moment in possession which went unpunished.

  • Morata
    0
    0
    3.00

    Morata

    Had one goal disallowed for a narrow offside and provided a great assist for Jese. Held the ball up well and got into good positions.

  • Cristiano Ronaldo
    0
    2
    2.50

    Cristiano Ronaldo

    Set up Rodriguez’s effort but was a peripheral figure for much of his half. Sent one effort well over the bar.

  • Jesé Rodríguez

    3.00

    Jesé Rodríguez Top of the Match

    Took his goal brilliantly and is looking to be a real option for Madrid for the second half of the season. Seems to grow with every game.

Substitutions

  • Jesús Fernández
    0
    0
    2.50

    Jesús Fernández

    Was left in no man's land with one corner late on and wasn't really tested all that often, but made a great save from Coman.

  • Daniel Carvajal
    0
    0
    3.00

    Daniel Carvajal

    Coped well as PSG put Madrid under real pressure late on and made one goal-saving block from Ongenda.

  • Llorente
    0
    0
    3.00

    Llorente

    Came on at half-time and partnered Pepe and didn't put a foot wrong during his 45 minutes.

  • Marcelo
    0
    0
    2.50

    Marcelo

    A rather typical Marcelo performance, doing well going forward with a couple of nervy moments at the back. Helped weather the storm.

  • Pepe
    0
    0
    2.50

    Pepe

    Led the back line in much the same way Ramos did before half-time and forced a decent save from Sirigu.

  • Ángel Di María
    0
    0
    2.50

    Ángel Di María

    His dribbling was Madrid's key to getting forward as they looked to counter late on.

  • Casemiro
    0
    0
    2.50

    Casemiro

    Provided more defensive stability than Alonso or Illarramendi and showed experience beyond his years.

  • Isco
    0
    0
    2.50

    Isco

    Was fairly threatening whenever he got in possession, but that was all too little.

  • Luka Modric
    0
    0
    2.50

    Luka Modric

    Classy in everything he did, the Croat recycled the ball well and provided serenity in the centre of the park.

  • Jaime Romero
    0
    0
    2.00

    Jaime Romero

    Looked to have decent pace to him but had all too little end product to go with it.

  • Karim Benzema
    0
    0
    3.00

    Karim Benzema

    Was a constant threat for Madrid, striking the bar within seconds of his arrival and would have scored were it not for some great work from Maxwell.
