Dijon-PSG (0-4): the ratings of Parisian players

Mauricio Pochettino was already deprived of Neymar and Di Maria, both in the recovery phase. The packages, Friday, of Marco Verratti (foot), Mauro Icardi (gastro) and Alessandro Florenzi (adductors), gave the opportunity to the Argentine coach of PSG to offer time to those who were deprived of it. With Rafinha in charge and four other changes from Monaco (2-0 defeat), PSG easily won on the pitch in Dijon, in particular thanks to a double from Mbappé, more than ever top scorer in Ligue 1.

Sweeper: 6. The game leaning especially on the left, the task of the German defender was often confined to blocking the right lane. Despite his lack of automation, he is involved on two goals. His shot countered with the hand offers a penalty (32nd) and he initiates the best action of the match concluded with Mbappé’s second goal (51st).

Marquinhos: 6. The Brazilian captain has not had the most complicated game of the season. Vigilant, he was never overwhelmed and cut all Dijon attempts.

Horn: 6. The world champion was able to discourage Burgundian intentions. Chief stalker, he has only very rarely left the possibility to the Dijonnais to turn around with the ball.

Diallo: 7. The former Monegasque turned out to be a more than credible option for Kurzawa on the left flank. Securing from a defensive point of view, he multiplied the proposals on the offensive plan. His agreement with Mbappé allows him to give an assist to Kean (6th) and bring danger with his centers.
