Typically untested severely at the back, the Italy international remained vigilant and did his duties well before being controversially beaten by Khazri’s wonderful free kick.

Did well offensively and limited Bastia on his flank. Though slightly more defensive minded than he’s used to, the Brazilian enjoyed a decent run out as he completed his duties well. Threatening when more advanced.
The veteran once again did well after deputizing for Thiago Silva. Not faced with particularly much, his tackles and clearances were a highlight.

Not difficult to see why Ancelotti prefers Christophe Jallet at the back, but nevertheless a rather average evening from the Dutchman, in his first league start since November. Was posed a few problems by Thauvin. Rather mute during the second period too.
Enjoyed an unassuming first half, letting the other attacking trio to take the mantle. The Argentine contributed sufficiently, before upping the ante in the second half – where he picked up an assist.
The Brazilian shined on home ground again, but his finishing left a lot to be desired. Slipped up at a free kick before scuffing a golden opportunity wide, it soured what otherwise was a productive evening.
In the lineup in place of the rested Blaise Matuidi, Chantome showed glimpses of why he should be in the first team more often. Great combination with Verratti, though sometimes erratic.
His passing range benefited the league leaders once more, being the driving force in the midfield, constantly setting up his teammates. Fared well shielding the defense too. A good evening for the young Italian.
The striker was named in place of Ibrahimovic, and featured well, creating many a chance. Thwarted by Landreau before also hitting the post, the former Lorient star can take heart from his performance. Subbed for Ibrahimovic.
Whereas his pace and trickery dominated the visitors early on, Menez was initially again lacking in the end product before rising to feature prominently. Linked well with Gameiro, who hit the post, and then Pastore who supplied his goal just after the break. Well-taken finish before almost hitting a spectacular second. A great game from him.
The former Lille custodian did well for almost an hour thanks mainly in part to his rearguard. Turned away a Gameiro back heel brilliantly before being finally beaten by Menez, Lavezzi and Ibrahimovic.

The defender enjoyed a prudent first half, calmly dealing with anything that PSG threw at him. Thwarted both Lucas and notably Maxwell before fading towards the end.
The full-back, along with Palmieri was noticeably unconvincing. Had a few troubles in limiting a rampant PSG side before fading away further after Ibrahimovic’s inclusion.
Like his defensive partners, Cioni failed to shine despite a promising opening. Did well to try and thwart Gameiro but couldn’t sustain his performance.
The 32-year-old midfielder was rather limited in his approach play, and became overawed by the pace and power afforded by the visitors. Substituted.
The Lille bound star was the visitors’ best player before Khazri’s introduction towards the end. Constantly ran at the hosts and instigated chances for his side.
The former PSG star was one of his side’s better players this evening. Led his team confidently during the first 45, fairing well in a packed midfield in a performance which belies his advancing years.
Back from the Africa Cup of Nations, the energetic midfielder asserted control of the midfield, but continued to constantly toe the line with the referee. Substituted for Khazri.
The attacking midfielder endured a poor evening compared to his recent exploits in the league. Failed to seriously cause problems for PSG.
The Brazilian was typically isolated and well-marshaled by a Parisian outfit who had not conceded a league goal since December. Failed to find fluency with his teammates.
His brief few minutes almost handed Bastia a shock draw. Well regarded as the playmaker of this side, Khazri broke Sirigu’s record with a fine free kick from 40 yards before being thwarted seconds later. Nevertheless, a terrific appearance off the bench.
Briefly managed well after being thrown on except a few heated moments following a lunge on Sirigu.
