1. Achraf Hakimi, back to a good level

When you look at the renewed PSG squad, you would expect that the pieces with the most experience in Paris are the ones who stood up for the team. Like Kylian Mbappe, Marquinhos, Danilo Pereira or Achraf Hakimi. The Moroccan is undoubtedly one of the players who raised the most expectations at Paris Saint-Germain. However, since the beginning of the season and after 4 league games, the right-back had greatly disappointed.

The feeling was that of a footballer who, despite showing some of his qualities such as his speed or his courage when taking risks, was overshadowed by his terrible decision-making. Hakimi seems to have taken note, and against Nice, he played a game, from my point of view, at the level of expectations. The Moroccan registered 85% effectiveness in his passes (82/96), 14 passes within the final third of the field, and distributed 1 assist. It is essential that he remains at this level.
