PSG vs. Lorient - Grades: Midfielders

2 - Soler: One more game fighting for a still-not-won Ligue 1 title, one more time Galtier decides his best chance to get a win is by playing Soler from the start. Seriously, what's wrong with this coach? How did Soler fool PSG so badly that they signed him last summer? And knowing what we know now, how the hell does Galtier find the courage to keep playing him instead of Zaire-Emery or even the dull Fabian Ruiz!?

3 - Vitinha: Another game on the lower level of the scale. You never know because it's a lottery with Vitinha, but it's hella worrying to see him underperform more often than not. You get an idea of how bad things were going when Galtier decided to sub him off in exchange for Hugo Ekitike. Seriously.

3 - Verratti: Finally got to start a game after I-do-not-know-how-many failed attempts. One has to wonder if he's better coming off the bench. At least that way he would only struggle for 45 or 30 minutes instead of 90, and he might actually give it his 100% for that shorter time instead of doing cardio and nothing else at all from the get-go. Not the Verratti of old, but an old Verratti instead.

4 - Ruiz: Plain and simple. It's Ruiz, so that's what he will always give you. Sometimes, if he's lucky, he'll get an assists. Not the case on Sunday, as happens in maybe 37 of all 38 league games through a season.
