The goalkeeper was arguably the reason that the hosts did not fall behind in the first half. Showed his brilliance by saving a Diego penalty, and produced numerous stops to deny the likes of Glombard, Courtet and Devaux. His stock rises in the French capital once more.
The more defensively solid of the two centre-backs, and the former Chelsea man was once more commanding in the back four, helping out with a series of important interventions.
Deployed in midfield by Ancelotti, the Brazilian left-back was more attack-minded than in his recent Parisian performances. Tested Agassa with a couple of shots, with his movement of a good level.
Handed a rare start at left-back, his favoured position, but the veteran was unable to produce from the flank attacking-wise. A little suspect at the back too, as Diego’s bursting runs caused him one or two problems.
Unusually deployed in the more advanced role in midfield, the Brazilian took time in the match to adjust. Supplied Ibrahimovic with a couple of balls over the defence, but his importance at the back was missed.
The Paris Saint-Germain captain was perhaps a little shaky in the international break against Japan and Spain, and the 22-year-old continued in the same form, having been tested early on by Courtet. Improved in the second period.
G. van der Wiel
The Netherlands international played poorly in his last outing, but despite one or two good movements on the right-wing, Van der Wiel left a lot to be desired. Booked after conceding a penalty with a unnecessary handball.
Last year’s top scorer was brought in to replace Javier Pastore, but Nene failed to hit the previous campaign’s heady heights – especially at home. Suffered concussion early on, and didn’t really pose a threat.
The France international was more robust in his play, and was surprisingly one of the more efficient in midfield, with a 90% pass completion rate. Was an impressive figure in the middle once more.
The Swede was rather more disappointing in this game, especially when compared to his virtuoso display against Marseille. Unable to seriously trouble Agassa, but was much more involved in the play in the second half, dropping deep to create opportunities.
Typically hard-working, and that was evident again today. Scored the opener with a fine header – his first for Paris Saint-Germain, and showed good movement in creating chances for his side. Should really be considered for a first-team place alongside Ibrahimovic. Substituted for Jallet late on.
Would’ve been forgiven in thinking that he enjoyed an easier test than expected in Paris. Looked composed at times, but could not prevent Gameiro’s header in a period of domination for the visitors. Did well however to limit Ibrahimovic.
The 22-year-old proved adept at causing one or two problems with his impressive deliveries. Could’ve improved on the defensive front, but supplemented the attack well, striking up a good partnership with Courtet.
Weber enjoyed a decent game, highlighting his defensive ability with various interventions. Limited Ibrahimovic greatly, but could not match the Swede aerially. Drawn out of position late on by Menez.
Like Weber, the club captain was instrumental in limiting the Parisians in a resolute first half. Lacked the same sharpness in the second, and was lucky not to have seen Menez score in the second half after failing to concentrate.
The full-back provided a good service from the flanks, but like Souare, did not really manage the same defensively. Was upstaged by Maxwell, who he could not match.
A decent showing by the winger, who instigated various attacking openings for the visitors. His deliveries proved troublesome for the defence to cope with, but as with several of his team-mates, he was silenced in the second period. Made way for Toudic after 70 minutes.
The Polish midfielder held his own in midfield initially, but would suffer after Menez’s introduction. Erratic from there-on in, as he failed to improve as the hosts began to dominate.
Unassuming for much of the hour that he was on the field, but Ca responded well to the Parisian onslaught, by asserting his authority in the middle of the park, physically. Substituted for Ghisolfi after 60 minutes.
The midfielder struggled a little in the second half, but was a thorn in the hosts’ defence early on in the game by instigating attacking opportunities. Made way for Kamel Ghilas midway through the second half.
Diego could’ve put the visitors into a shock lead in the first half, but saw his dire penalty well saved by Sirigu. Often wasteful and lost the ball more times than any other player on the pitch. Offered attacking options in the first half, but rather pedestrian in the second.
One of many Reims’ players to have a considerable impact in the first half, but the 24-year-old would tail off in the second. Spurned a great opportunity with 15 minutes to go, seeing his header go wide.
Came on for Gameiro with less than 20 minutes to go. No more than a cameo from the club captain.
Entered the field of play to supplement a flagging PSG side, but his introduction only sought to improve the side with his pace and trickery immediately unravelling what was before a resolute Reims defence. Had an effort slammed against the post, before spurning two great chances late on to add to the club's tally.
Came on in place of Ca, and did nothing of note except picking up a booking for a poor challenge on Ibrahimovic.
The former Hull striker came on for Devaux after 66 minutes, but couldn’t exactly assert his authority on the match. Participated in one attack for the visitors, highlighting his ability on the right flank.
Superb cameo from Toudic. The substitute narrowly shot over the bar seconds after coming on, before producing an acrobatic and audacious scissor kick to hit the bar with minutes to go.
