Paris Saint-Germain welcomed Juventus at Parc des Princes earlier tonight as they looked to earn maximum points at home in the UEFA Champions League. PSG made an electric start to the game as they took the lead in the fifth minute courtesy of Kylian Mbappe’s powerful finish. The French striker doubled his team’s advantage in the 22nd minute as the French side went into the half-time break 2-0 up on the scoreline.

Juve got a goal back via Weston McKennie’s header in the 53rd minute. However, PSG hung on to their narrow lead and secured an impressive 2-1 victory in front of their home fans.

Let’s take a look at how each Paris Saint-Germain player performed during the clash against Juve.

The Italian keeper made a few decent saves at the back but was shaky at times during the game.

CB: Sergio Ramos – 6.5/10

He made some important defensive contributions and was quite accurate with his ball distribution.

CB: Marquinhos – 6/10

He made two crucial interceptions on the defensive end of the field but didn’t do enough to keep a clean sheet.
