Was diving around lush green grass not so long ago but my keyboard is all I have now. An avid observer of detail in sports with a passion to make myself heard. Can find me playing on a field if not in front of my screen.

Carlo Ancelotti’s men fired blanks in Paris as they were humiliated at the French capital in their group stage fixture against PSG in the Champions League on Wednesday. Dazzling feet from Neymar Jr opened up the visitors early in the game as Dani Alves converted from close range to give the hosts a lead in the 2nd minute.

Edinson Cavani’s powerful striker doubled the lead before halftime while Kylian Mbappe’s moment of brilliance gave Neymar an empty goal to score PSG’s third as they thrashed the German giants. There were very few positives to take from this game and here are the player ratings for Bayern:

Sven Ulreich (5):

Made a couple of routine saves but should have done better to stop the first two goals that they conceded.

Joshua Kimmich (6):

Was a constant presence at both ends of the field but failed to deliver crosses that could have helped Lewandowski to the score-sheet.

Niklas Sule (5):

Failed in the battle against the likes of Cavani as he was often caught out for pace and strength against an exciting PSG attack.

Javi Martinez (5):

Stung the keeper’s hands a couple of times on the night but should have done better to keep PSG from scoring thrice in the game.

David Alba (5):

Failed to create anything of note and was also caught out a number of times, evidently in the build-up to the final goal.

Corentin Tolisso (4):

Did little to help his backline out and was also not creative enough to break PSG’s defence and help his side score.

Thiago Alacantra (5):

Gave his all in a deep midfield role but the movement of the PSG attackers was just too much for him to handle in the middle of the park.

Arturo Vidal (4):

Failed to make any kind of an impression on the game as he looked lethargic and out of sorts, which played into PSG’s hands.

Thomas Muller (5):

His industry and running in the final third was what kept Bayern’s attacks alive but he failed to find the ball that could unlock the hosts on the night.

Robert Lewandowski (6):

Came close to scoring on a couple of occasions and also constantly harassed the likes of Thiago Silva but could not find the back of the net on a forgettable day.

James Rodriguez (5):

Popped up in pockets of space in front of PSG’s backline but did not do enough to help break them down even with all the possession he had.

SUBS:

Sebastian Rudy (5):

Replaced Tolisso just after half-time and added some mettle, which was missing in the first half.

Kingsley Coman (5):

Came into the game along with Rudy to replace Rodriguez and had some merry down the left flank, but like all his team-mates failed to break the home side down.

Arjen Robben (5):

The final throw of the dice by Ancelotti, Robben failed to get a grip on the game in the 20-minutes he had on the field.
