Paris Saint-Germain locked horns with Manchester City at the Parc des Princes earlier tonight, hoping to pick up all three points on matchday 2 of the UEFA Champions League campaign. Idrissa Gueye broke the deadlock in the 8-minute-mark as he put the ball past Ederson Moraes to make it 1-0 for the hosts. Lionel Messi doubled the lead in the 74th minute with a spectacular finish from the edge of the penalty area to secure a 2-0 win for his side.

Let’s take a look at how each PSG player fared during the clash against the Citizens.

PSG Players Rated Vs Manchester City

Gianluigi Donnarumma 9

The Italian shot-stopper made the most difficult of saves look so effortless in between the sticks tonight.

Achraf Hakimi 7 

The former Inter Milan star didn’t take part in the attacking proceedings too often, but he made some match-winning clearances and tackles to contain Manchester City’s attacking threat.

Marquinhos 8

The Brazilian centre-back hardly put a foot wrong at the back tonight. Besides, he tried to set his side on counter-attacks from time to time by playing extraordinary long balls.

Presnel Kimpembe 8

The Frenchman dominated aerially, and his positioning at the heart of PSG’s defence was quite impressive throughout the ninety minutes as he found himself at the right place at the right time over and over.

Nuno Mendes 8

The 19-year-old left-back started to settle as the game went on. At times he found himself defending against the likes of Bernardo Silva and Riyad Mahrez at the same time, but it’d be an understatement to say that he came out on top every single time.

Ander Herrera 7

The Spaniard’s ball distribution at the centre of the park was decent.

Marco Verratti 7.5

The Italian midfielder was a joy to watch in the middle of the field. He dictated the play in an impressive manner for as long as he was on the pitch and was almost press resistant.

Idrissa Gueye 8

The 32-year-old Senegal international scored the game’s first goal and shielded his side’s backline quite well throughout the contest.

Lionel Messi 8

The Argentine wizard finally got his first goal in PSG colours via a spectacular finish from the edge of the box.

Kylian Mbappe 9

The France international created all sorts of menace for the City defenders tonight. He put his blistering pace into use against the likes of Ruben Dias and Aymeric Laporte and successfully set up both the goals tonight.

Neymar 7.5

Neymar drew the opposition players towards him to create space for his teammates to drift into. Besides, he linked up the play reasonably well.

SUBSTITUTES (PSG Players Rated In Vs Manchester City)
