5 - Messi: Good bounceback game by Messi scoring and assisting... coincidentally playing away from the Parc des Princes and in a match that PSG fans were banned from attending (per government security mandates). Messi simply Messi'd Nice on Saturday. Not saying this was the classic one-action type of outing, as he showed some activity and willingness he had not in the recent past, but it's not that he put on a 90-minute show either. Good for PSG to have him back when it matters the most, as they'll hope he repeats this type of performance next weekend against Lens to seal their Ligue 1 title.

1 - Mbappe: The franchise player of PSG made it clear that this is Paris Saint-Germain, not Kylian Saint-Germain, and he's 100 percent right: Mbappe didn't show up at all on Saturday, did nothing to help his team, and Paris Saint-Germain could have very well earned three points without him on the pitch and playing 10v11.

Next. Messi bags 100th goal this season, breaks Ronaldo's record. dark

Mbappe better step up and improve his game, or it would really make sense to scratch and ditch the whole KSG project and start from the ground with the France captain plying his trade in Madrid instead of Paris.
