Paris Saint-Germain hosted Lille in the return of the Ligue 1 to the Parc des Princes on Sunday afternoon and suffered more than ever to earn a come-from-behind 4-3 victory after their opponents scored three consecutive, uncontested goals against them.

Everyone was smiling when the referee blew the whistle for a final time, but one has to wonder if a defeat would have served PSG better considering the mediocre show that could be watched live on location and from different stream services on Sunday. As always, magical but completely unsustainable actions by Kylian Mbappe and Leo Messi saved Paris when all hope was lost.

Here are the grades from our Parisian men after they won their first game in fourth attempts, finally breaking out of their three-game skid by defeating Lille and entering next weekend without risking losing the lead in the Ligue 1 against Olympique Marseille.

Goalkeeper Grades

4 - Donnarumma: While he was not entirely to blame for the three goals conceded, the truth is that he still ended up with three goals against in his personal tally. Alas, no good grade is at reach for the Italy international. That said, he saved PSG (even though he didn't want to) just seconds into the game, saved another great chance from Jonathan David in the first half, and completed a reasonably good performance as has been the case all season long. Didn't enter play with his feet at any point, which also helped him.
