PSG vs Nantes - Grades: Forwards

7 - Mbappe: Screwed Galtier's system because of how freely he played. He roamed all areas of the final third, moved anywhere he pleased, didn't have anything even remotely close to a great game, and still found a way to score and even more to write his name in the history books of PSG in golden letters as the club's all-time top goalscorer. Called it a day, Mbappe.

8 - Messi: The coach used the genius in the role he knows how to handle best, and the little Argentine delivered the goodies. We have been saying it for a while: old Messi is the best version of Messi if used in a hybrid 8-to-10 position as he's forced to drop deeper, touch more balls, and generate more offense without mistake. The goal was one of a true football mind finding the right gap at the right moment in time, sneaking into the box to hit the ball without a single defender noticing his arrival. He would have already signed his extension of PSG if this was his weekly type of performance, but sadly that's not the case anymore. Let's hope he has a similar outing next Wednesday.

Next. Galtier: "I'm satisfied with the last three games". dark

(Sub) 5 - Soler: Played 20 minutes and was lucky Nantes didn't exploit their subbed-in left-wing more than they did, as Soler might have struggled stopping him on fresh legs. Didn't have to do much as the game was pretty much under control and he didn't really contribute anything on offense, either. Very discreet outing, though not one in which he was asked to do much more than some cardio.
