Auxerre vs. PSG - Grades: Defenders

2 - Sergio Ramos: Never had a clue about what was going on when the game called for him to get involved in defensive actions. Entirely misjudged the play leading up to Auxerre's goal, was fooled once more in the second half inside the area, and failed to stop a third attack that could have brought the game-drawing goal. He should retire after the next to games, and if not, then at the very least PSG should let him go for free once he becomes a free agent in July.

5 - Danilo: Didn't really have much to do and when in demand he did what you could expect from him and asked him to accomplish. Another good performance in which he was the better of the three center-back players used by Galtier on his five-man line. Nothing remarkable, mind you.

5 - Marquinhos: You could downgrade him to a subpar grade if you wish, but it's not that he could do much more than he did in the critical defensive actions of the game as he wasn't really close to the ball and therefore couldn't truly impact those plays. That said, he might have been better located or more aware in order to bring some more solidity to the defense.

3 - Bernat: He didn't appear a single time on offense, which means that he did virtually nothing because Bernat is known more for his offensive prowess than his defensive chops. With the former traits not popping up, he was always in for a rough (or ghostly) one, and that's precisely what happened.

5 - Zaire-Emery: I guess he gets the pass just by default. Could have done a little bit more, could have been much worse. Gotta keep in mind that he was playing out of position as a makeshift right-back so that's a boost considering he's a natural midfielder and not a true defender. He's young and stubborn, which makes him stay alert and fight all game long, definitely a positive at this stage of his development.
