7 - Mbappe: The top goalscorer of the French top-flight division added a couple of bangers to his personal tally (28) while getting deniead a hat-trick by VAR in the final minutes of the game. He has now padded his gap with Alexandre Lacazette (26) by two goals with two games left. More importantly, Mbappe is just two goals (51) shy of matching Just Fontaine's 53-goal 1958 season in all competitions (club and international level) if the PSG forward can score two more shots in his remaining two matches.

4 - Messi: Another forgettable game by the Argentine world champion... Perhaps, it's better this way so nobody will miss him when he inevitably leaves Paris in a couple of weeks and embarks on a trip toward his preferred Middle Eastern region to play in the Saudi league along with sub-GOAT Cristiano Ronaldo. Started the game getting involved and determined to make a mark, but faded hard after a few minutes of play and once PSG found themselves up 2-0 early on the evening.

2 - Ekitike: As bad as he's ever been, the young land keeps playing better when he doesn't touch the ball (as in Mbappe's second goal, when Ekitike played decoy as he's done in the past and his dummy allowed Mbappe to score after the defense was fooled) than when he does as he tends to overcomplicate things too much. Had an extraordinary chance to put PSG up 3-0 on the verge of halftime but he couldn't even strike the ball (literally, he absolutely whiffed the pass) in front of an open goal. Left the pitch injured by the 55th minute, although it doesn't seem to be anything that will keep him from playing in the final two matches of the season.
