A good performance from Sirigu who has not conceded in two games now. Saved PSG when it was 0-0, and parried brilliantly when one-on-one against Yatabare.
G. van der Wiel
The Netherlands international couldn’t exactly assert his authority on the encounter, but contributed to the cause with a couple of good crosses from the right.
The Brazilian highlighted his qualities at left back with a decent performance. Contributed well to the attack, appearing on the overlap several times. Defensively sound also.
The PSG captain enjoyed a very good afternoon, which should’ve been rewarded with a goal after hitting the woodwork. Thwarted the visitors on various occasions, and won virtually all of his aerial challenges.
The former Chelsea defender improved following his rather below par start to the season. Showed his strength in dealing with Guingamp’s attacks, and combined well with his defensive partner.
Another disappointing afternoon from the Argentine. He was booed off when substituted for Adrien Rabiot – who in turn scored the winner. Bar one or two good chances, was laborious.
A good performance from Matuidi as he shows his worth in the Parisien midfield with an efficient if unassuming performance today.
More influential in possession compared to the last two games, the Italy international was superbly solid and effective once more in the heart of the midfield. Fashioned many chances for the hosts.
Started the game very brightly, hitting the post inside 80 seconds for the Parisiens. As last week, dropped deeper to involve himself in the build-up more. After a quiet second half full of frustration, hit the second goal in stoppage time to confirm victory with a stunning finish.
Lavezzi, who scored the winner last week was a constant threat on the left, and fashioned a couple of half chances for his teammates. Sometimes found himself with limited chances.
The Uruguayan was again the focal point in attack, testing Samassa with a number of shots. Saw a superb volley fly wide, and unlucky not to have beaten the keeper when one-on-one. All in all, another very good game from the €64m man.
Worked incessantly by the PSG attack from the off. Fared well for much of the first half, but was suspect in the second as he flapped from corners, and parried into the path of Rabiot for the opener.
Tailing off after a decent opening, the right back struggled with the width that the hosts attacked from. Maxwell, particularly, gave him a headache with his overlapping runs.
Like Martins-Pereira, the full back tailed off as the game progressed. Left space behind his flank, which was utilized well by the hosts.
Not exactly as influential as his defensive partner, but was easily beaten for PSG’s two goals right at the end.
The center back produced a good defensive performance which was undone by PSG’s late goal rush. Kept the likes of Ibrahimovic and Cavani frustrated with a series of tackles and well-timed blocks.
Positioned in the holding midfield role, Sankhare did brilliantly well in the first half to limit the PSG attack from creating chances. Showed great positional movement to aid Guingamp’s defense until he was substituted in the second half.
The Turkish midfielder was rather ill-disciplined on the ball, and conceded a number of fouls. Booked while being substituted.
The Guingamp captain was a commanding figure in the midfield. Shielding the deference well, along with Sankhare, he was an efficient passer of the ball.
The midfielder was distinctly average, but highlighted his power with a couple of good interceptions of the ball.
The enterprising midfielder was the source of the Guingamp attacks in the first half. Clever on the ball, linking up with Yatabare. Saw a header wide as his influence waned.
The powerful striker, top scorer in Ligue 2 last year, didn’t really make an impact. Bright initially, Yatabare did cause problems for the likes of Van der Wiel, but fluffed the golden opportunity with a stunning miss against Sirigu.
The Brazilian provided glimpses of his quality in the final 20 or so minutes. Fired wide from distance, but quiet generally.
The game-changer. After coming on for a poor Pastore, Rabiot immediately got into the mix of things, venturing forward at every opportunity. His great movement deceived the defense, as he struck in stoppage-time to open the scoring for his first league goal.
