Regarded as one of Ligue 1’s outstanding shot-stoppers, the Mexico international produced an outstanding save in the first half when he thwarted Jeremy Menez. Had a surprisingly quiet evening.
Not nearly as offensive as his counterpart on the opposite side of the rearguard, yet defensively he enjoyed a solid game in the face of Menez.
Bombed forward down the right-hand side regularly, causing PSG problems with his offensive willingness. When asked to defend, he did so resolutely.
Solid in the middle of the Ajaccio rearguard, he might not have been the influence that Medjani was, but he was extremely efficient.
A young player who excelled towards the end of last season, he has yet to find his feet this term, and a first-time shot high over the bar from just outside the box rather summed up a disappointing showing from the France Under-21 midfielder. Fought well and at least riled his opponents.
Making his first appearance of the season after being suspended last weekend, he linked play between the midfield and offence well, but he did rather lack incision in his play.
The powerful midfielder dominated the area in front of the back four, showing great mobility and athleticism to nullify the impact of the PSG attack.
Outstanding against Nice last weekend, the centre-back was again in commanding form during this clash, acting as the keystone to the rearguard. His performance encapsulated the whole attitude of the Ajaccio side as he was determined and immensely rugged.
A strong performance from the captain in the heart of the midfield. He did little flashy, but he was very effective indeed with much of his work.
The flying winger was involved in everything in the early stages of the match, but when presented with a sight of Salvatore Sirigu’s net, he lost his head and allowed his touch to get away from him.
Was not called upon regularly, but when he was asked to be at his best, the Italian responded well. Brave to deny Diarra in the opening period and brilliantly denied Eduardo in the second.
Under pressure from new addition Thiago Silva, the promising defender was again given the confidence of Carlo Ancelotti, but a couple of very obvious errors did him little credit. In particular, he gifted possession away in the second half to allow Eduardo to hit the post.
Won his first France cap in midweek, and perhaps suffered something of a hangover as he was stretched on several occasions by Diarra and also failed to exert much of an influence offensively.
Did not look comfortable defensively down his flank, which was overloaded with players pushing forward. On the occasions he pushed forward, he was wasteful with possession and was caught out of position.
The Brazilian centre-back was rarely put under serious pressure over the course of the game, although on occasion his lack of pace was exposed. He was otherwise an imposing obstacle that Ajaccio failed to grind down.
A busy performance from the former Saint-Etienne player, whose distribution was often short but accurate. Kept a good temp in the midfield but might have contributed more going forward.
PSG’s outstanding player last season, the Brazilian was making his first start of the campaign and was an offensive bright spot in the side. Created a magnificent chance for Menez in the first half and looked dangerous from set-pieces.
On a roasting night in Corsica, the midfielder barely seemed to feel the effects as he was all over the field. Although his main job was defensive, he was willing to make the occasional foray forward, too, looking dangerous from set-pieces.
Deployed in a deeper position than he is accustomed to and was rather subdued as a result. Did show glimpses of real class, with a searching diagonal pass out to Jeremy Menez in the first half, but his side would have wanted to see more from him.
Flitted in and out of the match, and though he offered some tricky footwork out wide, the main image of his performance will be a simple first-half chance missed from close range. Never lacked confidence, but nothing he tried came off.
Drafted in from Napoli in pre-season, the attacker still has to really make his mark on this PSG side. Was rather peripheral in this encounter and his frustration was taken out in an ugly manner with a fierce challenge on Benjamin Andre, which resulted in a red card. Let his side down badly.
Introduced with quarter of an hour to go and showed the kind of technique that has seen him earmarked as a major star for the future.
Scored a hat-trick in Ajaccio last term, but came on with around 25 minutes remaining to try and find a winning goal. Was unable to get himself into the game.
