Perhaps the only PSG player never to look troubled by their Belgian opponents, dealing with every corner, long shot or close-range effort comfortably - except for the goal.
Like his partners at center back, did not enjoy his finest night, giving the ball away and making too many rash tackles.
Defended well and could also be seen surging down the left-hand side and delivering penetrative crosses into the danger area throughout.
The Brazilian was not great, giving the ball away far too often, as well as blatantly diving in the second half. Was replaced by Thiago Silva after the break.
G. van der Wiel
Often let N'Sakala get the better of him in a defensive capacity but showed his value going forward, playing a major role in most of PSG's attacks and showing an eagerness to beat his man down the right-hand side.
Spread the play effectively for the Ligue 1 champions, as well as tackling strongly in midfield. Could not find a penetrative pass into the final third but did his best to try and break the Anderlecht back line.
Came off with 10 minutes to go but showed patient passing during his time on field as one of the home side's main playmakers.
The powerhouse midfielder made his presence known both in defense and attack as he made strong tackles and cut out loose passes. After winning the ball, Matuidi would often then surge forward with it and create several chances for his teammates. Played Ibrahimovic in for the goal.
A huge threat going forward, the Brazilian's pace and energy was a breath of fresh air during such a stalemate. Often beat his man and drew fouls from defenders that just could not keep up with him. Was slightly wasteful with his finishing, though.
This was not his best night in a PSG shirt, but the Swede still got on the scoresheet to save his side. Ibrahimovic was closed down more often than not and looked clumsy on the ball, conceding several free kicks - but his through-balls were terrific.
Missed a glorious chance early on and looked a beaten man after. Defensive pressure from Anderlecht got the better of him today and, on occasion, he did not even look like trying to change that. Gave the ball away with several loose passes and was hauled off in the second half.
Showed real bravery against superior opposition. Could not keep his first European clean sheet of the season but was well positioned to make several important saves as his side claimed their first Champions League point of the campaign.
Cleared everything in sight and really inspired his teammates with his defending and work-rate. Will be key in his side's next two games if it is to have any hope of clinching a Europa League place.
A. Vanden Borre
A shining light on a very good day for his side. Ventured forward well and was lively throughout. Also made a sensational block in his own area from a Lucas shot during the second half.
Got forward really well down the flank and delivered dangerous crosses into the penalty area. Gave Van der Wiel a run for his money down the left-hand side.
Showed a wisdom beyond his years as he cut passes out, made blocks and produced expert tackles in defense. Without him, his side could not have held on so bravely.
Could be found marking Ibrahimovic very tightly at times, which was best exemplified when he put pressure on the Swede from a corner that he could very nearly have scored from.
Made the occasional bad challenge, being booked for his efforts, but did not put a foot wrong aside from that.
Could not influence the game that much directly but otherwise embodied his side's hard-working spirit.
D. de Zeeuw
Often lost the ball but produced shots on goal from the unlikeliest of positions. Was also very hard-working and got the goal his fans will remember for the rest of the season.
An energetic presence for his side as he won several tackles in midfield and surged forward down the left. Was drawn into a foul by Lucas in the first half, which resulted in a booking. Then, deliberately and foolishly committed a hand ball to earn his second booking and an early bath.
Produced more efforts on goal than any other player in the first half and was a very lively presence in the PSG half. At times, the likes of Alex and Marquinhos could not live with him. Was only let down by a lack of experience at this level.
Came on with 30 minutes left but was a mere bystander for the goal, while he also missing a golden opportunity to win the game for his side in the final minute.
Threaded the ball through to Ibrahimovic superbly after coming on as a second-half substitute but was greedy at times when a pass was the best option.
Came on and showed great pace in between the lines but could not find his side the winner.
