Geoffroy-Guichard witnessed a great match between St-Etienne and PSG. It was a complete nightmare for PSG when the home team took the lead through Denis Bouanga. However, Marquinhos brought home the equalizer in injury time to make things work.
When the match entered the second half, Angel Di Maria was beautifully passed by Messi to equalize for PSG. It was again Lionel Messi, who provided the assist for the third goal of the game, courtesy of Marquinhos. He completed his double in style. The score was quite tight when the game tilted in favor of PSG.
Here are the player ratings for the encounter:-
Etienne Green (GK) (7.5 / 10): Green made a lot of glove-related saves but he couldn’t keep the score intact when conceding two goals cost them all match.
Yvann Maçon (6.7/10): A pretty average game for Yvann. He’s lost possession 13 times and it’s not an interesting statistic.
Mickael Nade (6.4 / 10): Mickael had some good clearances during the game but that was all he was able to do as he barely affected the game.
Timothée Kolodziejczak (5.6 / 10): An unfortunate escape for Timothée as he made a challenging tackle against PSG and an inexcusable attempt to win the ball resulted in a red card and a disqualification. sent off in stoppage time.
Miguel Trauco (6.4 / 10): Miguel did a good job defensively but he couldn’t control the ball because he lost possession many times.
Mahdi Camara (6.3/10): The captain had a not really good game. He did a great job defensively but he seemed unstable and his disappointing performance did not set a great example for his team.
Alpha Sissoko (6.4 / 10): Aloha Sissoko’s only 45 minutes of play as he was unable to impact the game or produce a positive play.
Denis Bouanga (7.5 / 10): Denis Bouanga did the unthinkable against the current number one Ligue 1 team, PSG. He scored after an early save by a teammate and led 1-0 and gave St-Etienne the brightest start of all time.
Ryad Boudebouz (7.4/10): Ryad did a commendable job winning some duels and passing very well but he left the field due to injury concerns.
Adil Aouchiche (6.3 / 10): Just 45 minutes of playing for Adil when he was unable to impact the game or produce a good positive play
Wahbi Khazri (7/10): Wahbi had a very good chance to score but he missed the target, which certainly provided a scoring opportunity for his team.
Lucas Calodat (None)
Gianluigi Donnarumma (GK) (6.7/10): Donnarumma can handle Denis Bouanga’s goal in a better way but he doesn’t have many options. A good game above all for Italians.
Achraf Hakimi (6.5 / 10): Hakimi plays very well with quick feet but he has not been able to bring great performances in the last few matches.
Marquinhos (8.5/10): The PSG captain has always been a lifesaver for his team and does his job well again. He missed a babysitter earlier but he redeemed himself pretty well. Messi hit a perfect free-kick within an inch and Marquinhos headed the keeper’s net in the near corner to equalize at the end of the first half. He got a second chance in the last few seconds to complete his brace and score a third for PSG.
Sergio Ramos (7.2 / 10): Ramos played excellently in the PSG shirt. He did a phenomenal job in winning and his passing accuracy was certainly exquisite. A really good game by the Spaniards.
Juan Bernat (7.2/10): A great game by Bernat. He did a great job winning the ball, keeping the ball and making some excellent passes. He contributed very well to the victory of PSG.
Danilo Pereira (7.4/10): A good game for Danilo as he won quite a few tackles and intercepts, contributing well to the team.
Idrissa Gueye (7.8 / 10): Gueye created some good chances and he created a great scoring opportunity for PSG while also having an effort off target.
Angel Di Maria (8.1/10): Di Maria was definitely present at the right time, at the right time. He received an excellent assist from Messi when he was unmarked and he made a simple finish around Green to give PSG the lead.
Lionel Messi (8.7/10): The Argentinian certainly doesn’t get some goals for himself but he’s definitely crossed all the scoreboards. He made all 3 assists in all 3 of PSG’s goals. Truly a performer.
Neymar (6.1/10): Neymar had a disappointing game and then he left the field due to injury concerns.
Kylian Mbappé (5.6/10): Mbappé had the worst match that could happen of his Ligue 1 campaign. He missed three scoring opportunities that could have been so simple. A boring match of the star striker.
Leandro Paredes (N / A)
