PLAYER RATINGS | PSG 0-0 OGC Nice, a game of few chances defined by those that were missed

PSG – 0

Gianluigi Donnarumma, 5 – Little to do overall but made a good save from a first half Delort header, although he was lucky it was right at him.

Achraf Hakimi, 4

Marquinhos, 5

Presnel Kimpembe, 6 – Made a superb last ditch tackle on Delort in the first half.

Nuno Mendes, 4

Danilo Pereira, 5

Éric Junior Dina Ebimbe, 5

Idrissa Gueye, 4

Kylian Mbappé, 3 – Very quiet for long spells and somehow sliced wide PSG’s best chance having been wonderfully put in by Messi.

Ángel Di María, 4 – Fairly prominent in the first half as largely PSG’s strongest creative force but faded after half time and should score when put through one-on-one with Benitez.

Lionel Messi, 5 – Quiet on the whole but still produced a smattering of brilliance, a reverse ball for Mbappé, which should have won the game, the best.

Others: Icardi 5, Verratti 6, Paredes 5.

NICE – 0

Walter Benítez, 7 – Made a string of smart saves, a double stop from an Mbappé shot before kicking away from Gueye and halting Di Maria one-on-one in the second half were the highlights.

Jordan Lotomba, 6

Jean-Clair Todibo, 6

Dante, 7 – The pick of Nice’s defenders, showing all his experience in marshalling a stoic and combative low block for much of the game.

Melvin Bard, 5

Morgan Schneiderlin, 5

Mario Lemina, 6

Justin Kluivert, 4

Hicham Boudaoui, 4

Andy Delort, 4 – A persistent presence is progressing Nice’s sporadic counters but should score in the first half having directed a free header right at Donnarumma.

Kasper Dolberg, 2 – Quiet overall and somehow missed an open goal with a diving header from point blank range.

Others: Stengs 5, Thuram 5, Gouiri 5.
