Kylian Mbappé (4,5/10)
Despite his decisive pass at the very end of the match for Icardi, Mbappé lacked rhythm this evening and was not as impactful as usual.
Lionel Messi (6/10)
Messi gave him great opportunities in the first half and boosted the tempo of his team. Only one goal is missing for the time being.
A goal that could have been scored from the penalty spot but Neymar preferred to keep it to himself. A decisive action to his credit and some flashes even if the Brazilian can do much better.
Gianluigi Donnarumma (6/10)
In his cage, the Italian suffered a lot of blows at the start of the game and was able to hold the house. There is not much he can do about Paqueta’s canon revival.
Anthony Lopes (6/10)
In the opposite goal, Lopes also made his match, splitting in particular an exceptional parade in front of Messi. Icardi left him no chance in the money time.
Jérôme Boateng (4/10)
In obvious difficulty of benchmarks and not yet at his best physically, Boateng has not always been reassuring, unlike his hinge companion Denayer.
Bad Taste (5/10)
Designated guilty on the penalty obtained and transformed by Neymar, the young Lyon side has yet made his match and deserves to be seen again.
Xherdan Shaqiri (4.5 / 10)
The Swiss lacked weight and impact in this part, far too discreet for an element of such caliber.
Lucas Paqueta (7/10)
The real boss of OL tonight, an inspired and inspiring scorer alongside a Toko Ekambi who also lived up to the meeting.
Substitute against Olympique Lyonnais, Leandro Paredes was also surprised to see Lionel Messi join the bench at the start of the last quarter of an hour.
There is not only Lionel Messi who did not understand his exit, at the 76e minute, during the shock between the PSG and theOlympique Lyonnais. It was the same with some of his teammates on the bench when the former Barcelona came to sit next to him.

Evidenced by the hallucinatory reaction of his compatriot Leandro Paredes at his side and the equally bemused face of Rafinha, also glued to the bench. The Argentinian milieu expresses its astonishment in particular by spreading its arms, openly seeming to question this premature exit.
It seems that not even Messi’s teammates understood the substitution. What did you think of Pochettino’s choice? pic.twitter.com/0UerOx9Spe

Replaced by Achraf Hakimi, the six-fold Golden Ball did not hide his discontent, ignoring the hand extended by Mauricio Pochettino and splitting a disapproving pout when crossing his trainer.
