PSG vs. Clermont - Grades: Midfielders

2 - Verratti: Way to wrap up the season. Ever declining from the start of the campaign back in August and all the way through June, Verratti put the cherry on top of a year to forget by playing a ridiculous ball into Donnarumma that fell way short of reaching the goalie and led to the first of three uncontested goals by Clermont. Let's hope for a better 2024, although that'd be easy for him to accomplish as he'll just need to show up in camp.

5 - Renato Sanches: Back to the pine with Hugo Ekitike getting the start on a three-man forward line. He logged a little over 30 minutes of playing time, touched fewer than a ball per minute, completed all but one of the 23 passes he attempted, but lost six possessions. A very Sanches-like type of outing with the lad never finding his place nor contributing that much to anything.

6 - Vitinha: The assist for Sergio Ramos' opener was absolutely delightful and that soft cross was a sight to behold. The placement was good, but the defense helped because they should have easily cleared that ball. They didn't, though, so Vitinha gets the bonus points. Not great, but one of his better games.

5 - Carlos Soler: Without Fabian Ruiz on the matchday squad, it was second-favorite Soler who got the benefit of Galtier's bench maneuvers. It was actually a good substitution, considering how ludicrously atrocious Hugo Ekitike had played through 57 minutes. Not that Soler did much more while on the pitch...

NR - Gharbi: Cup of coffee (five minutes off the bench) for the youngster, who will look to have a much larger impact on Sunday's U19 final game of the season as he'll be part of the underage squad as they aim to lift the title.
