A poor evening from the Spanish goalkeeper. At considerable fault for both goals, the custodian failed to produce the performance expected, especially at this level. Improved in the second half but not convincing.
Faced a side that he knows well following his time at Lille, and the France international fared decently against the Ligue 1 leaders. His brilliant goal gives Valencia hope for the return leg nonetheless.
One of the better Valencia players on the night, the Portuguese international’s crosses proved to be the only threat that the visitors had to deal with. His movement and passing at times was a joy to behold.
The defender, struggled at times but improved as the game wore on. Marshalled Ibrahimovic superbly and denied PSG in the second half.
The Mexico international was deployed as left-back and initially struggled in the first half, with Lucas in particular giving him a headache. Improved as the game wore on as the hosts became more urgent, with his pace a real factor.
The Algerian star contributed well in the simple passing game his side deployed for much of the fixture, but offensively, he was kept in check by the opposition. Subbed for Viera late on.
Touted to be Valencia’s main threat this evening against PSG, but the wild Argentine could only muster 45 minutes before being withdrawn. Disappointingly poor on the big stage, his contribution was limited.
Parejo could not assert his authority on the game with the visitors' fluid attack pulling him out of position at times.
The former Montpellier star played well in midfield this evening. His passing and control of the ball proved fruitful in the end as he set up Rami for the goal. Linked well with those ahead of him.
Endured a poor evening as he was well marshalled by the visiting defence. Failed to sparkle in the final third and substituted in favour of Valdez after half-time.
The Che captain could not inspire his side after being overawed by a powerful PSG defence. The likes of Alex and Sakho kept him in under close guard and the Spain international failed to test Sirigu.
A mixed night for the goalkeeper. When he was tested, he pulled off two comfortable saves but will be disappointed with the goal he conceded.
The right-back enjoyed another productive evening by limiting Guardado and Feghouli’s advances. Positionally aware, he was once more solid at the back.
In the side just a day after becoming a father for the first time, the young defender was once again commanding, with a dominant aerial display.
The Brazilian was solid throughout, but was sometimes left out of position and exposed his defence to a couple of chances. Easily beaten by Valdez, before the Valencia man set up Rami's goal.
Made the left wing his own and linked up delightfully with his team-mates. Proved a real threat in the attacking third and was sound defensively.
The tireless midfielder put in another fine showing and his natural athleticism helped to spark a number of his side's counterattacks.
The young Italian took command of the midfield well, and his dazzling, silky passing range easily unlocked Valencia when on the counter. A major minus is the silly booking he incurred, ruling him out of the return leg.
Devastating on the right-wing as he sought to gain a stranglehold on the flank. Set up the second for Pastore whilst flexing his attacking muscles with a sweet strike against the post. The Brazilian enjoyed a fruitful European debut.
A hugely productive evening from the often criticised Argentine. Confident when advancing with the ball and propped up all over the pitch before capping it off with a well-taken goal.
Slotted into an early rhythm playing off Ibrahimovic, and showed incredible composure to open the scoring. Should have got PSG’s third in the second half, but a brilliant threat throughout.
Did well to drop back and facilitate the attacks and create problems for the home defence. But he spoiled his good work with a stupid red card for a tackle on Guardado which jeopardises his side’s chances.
Replaced Banega after the interval and fared better, with the young Spaniard feeding the strikers with a few fine passes as the hosts aimed to recover.
The Paraguayan star was thrown on after a poor first half, and he excelled initially, adding another dimension to a limp side by instigating various attacking chances. Faded a little afterwards and missed a superb chance to reduce the deficit.
