PSG 0-2 Rennes: Individual Grades of the Paris Saint-Germain players
PSG returned to the Parc des Princes for the 28th matchday of the Ligue 1 and lost 0-2 to the visiting Rennes after having won their prior first games in the French top-flight division. This was, also, the first loss at home by PSG since April 2021.
In the most boring and uninspiring game played by PSG this season, and boasting a depleted squad massively hit by injuries, the Parisian men couldn't do anything to stop Rennes from bagging a couple of goals and going away with a victory on the road.
As has been the case throughout the 2023 calendar year, Christophe Galtier didn't have an answer to Rennes' extraordinary organization and game plan. The coach used the same excuses as always and blamed the loss (the seventh this season) on injuries, something that makes only little sense considering he was the one (along with Luis Campos) building the squad after arriving last summer.
Here are the grades from our Parisian men after they lost their first league game after winning four in a row on their way to winning a historic 11th Ligue 1 title.
PSG vs Rennes - Grades: Goalkeepers
3 - Donnarumma: Didn't touch a ball with his feet, which definitely helped him keep his head above water on that front. When it came to shot-stopping, though, he lacked everything although it's not that he could do much in front of a defense that opened corridors and doors wide for opponents to score goals freely. He still doesn't know what "clean sheet" means.
