Marco Bizot(5.5/10)- A disappointing evening for the Brest goalkeeper tonight. However, there was not much he could do about the goals.
Christophe Hérelle(5.5/10)- Similar to his defensive partner, Herelle too didn’t the best of games. Slow in possession and just not able to close down the PSG forwards in time.
Brendan Chardonnet(5/10)- A poor performance from the defender today. He failed to close down Kylian Mbappe in time and conceded the first goal.
Jean-Kevin Duverne (5.5/10)- The left-back for Brest had a tough game today. He was constantly under pressure from an inform Angel Di Maria.
Ronael Pierre-Gabriel(5.5/10)- Gabriel was completely bamboozled by Nuno Mendes in the second goal. He left his man free and allowed Kehrer to score.
Hugo Magnetti(5.5/10)- The midfielder was beaten on many occasions on pace by Kylian Mbappe and this turned him angry. He got into a fight with Mbappe and got himself a yellow card.
Lucien Agoumé(5.5/10)- Agoume found it difficult to mark Gini Wjinaldum who managed to wriggle past him on occasions. He pulled Wjinaldum down with both hands and was booked following that.
Franck Honorat(7/10)- Honorat looked menacing whenever the ball was at his feet. He created a wonderful chance for Cardona in the starting minutes but the striker failed to convert.
Romain Faivre(6/10)- Faivre was operating on the right-hand side of the four-man midfield today. However, unlike Honorat he was not attacking the opposition much.
Irvin Cardona(6.5/10) – The striker had two golden opportunity in the first half but couldn’t convert either of them. The second one looked certain as he turned from close up but Donnarumma denied him.
Jeremy Le Douaron(5.5/10)- The striker hardly saw much of the ball and was neutralised by the PSG defence. He couldn’t get into scoring positions.
Paul Lasne(5.5/10)- Paul Lasne was brought on in place of the booked Magnetti. The Brest manager was afraid he would go down to ten men.
Hianga Mbock(5.5 10)- The midfielder came on in the second half to replace Agoume. He was not able to influence the game much.
Steve Mounie(6/10)- This was a strange decision by Brest. Cardona looked like he would score but was suddenly taken off.
