Already forced to make many adjustments due to a long list of injuries, Thomas Tuchel still had to adapt his 4-3-3 where Florenzi was aligned as a right winger. Paris quickly took the advantage and was able to let Rennes come. The injuries of Gueye, Kehrer, Florenzi then Kean forced Paris to evolve then in 3-5-2.
Navas: 7. Announced forfeit Friday due to a muscle problem by Tuchel, he was finally the holder. Even if he was little called upon, he was always vigilant. Whether it is in his kicking game, his punches (33rd) or his presence in front of his line (45th, 82nd).
Kehrer: (not rated). Back at the right-back position, he made a discreet start to the match before once again having to go out on injury. Affected in the adductors, it gave way to Bakker (36th, note: 5). The Dutchman took his place on the left, swapping his position with Kurzawa. He struggled against Guirassy’s burst of speed, which annoyed Tuchel.
Marquinhos: 6.5. Repositioned in central defense due to Kimpembe’s package (according to Tuchel), the Brazilian had little work to do. But he’s always been focused and solid.
Diallo: 5.5. A solid match. He did not hesitate to carry the ball high to try long passes which, however, did not all have the same success.
Kurzawa: 6. First left rear, he positioned himself on the right after the exit of Kehrer (36th). He sometimes suffered in the face of the speed of the Rennes who have passed behind his back several times. But he also imposed his physique.
Herrera: 6.5. We will mainly remember from his performance his magnificent and inspired sequence of control-pass in depth to serve Di Maria on the action of the second Parisian goal.
Paredes: 5.5. In front of the defense, the Argentine midfielder tried to vary the game by alternating short passes and openings for Florenzi or Kurzawa. More draft afterwards.
Gueye: (not rated). Before getting injured on Kean’s action, the midfielder had shown nothing except bad passes. Rafinha (13th, note: 6) replaced it. The Brazilian was above all valuable by his physical presence in defense. He then found himself a playmaker without really being able to express himself. A nice strike (86th).
Florenzi: 6. Very lively on the right side, he seemed comfortable in his attacking role. A nice opening for Di Maria (14th), a heel for Kehrer (30th). But victim of a small muscle discomfort, he was replaced after the break by Dagba (46th, score: 5.5). Warned very quickly (49th), he participated in 3rd goal.
Kean: 7. The striker again showed composure and efficiency to score the first Parisian goal with an inspired low strike (11th). Tired by his efforts, and hit in a thigh, he was replaced by Danilo (62nd).
Di Maria: 8. On the left flank of the Parisian attack, he was very inspired and also effective. At the origin of Kean’s goal. Thanks to his double, he became the 8th top scorer in PSG history with a total of 86 goals.
