PSG vs. Ajaccio - Grades: Midfielders

6 - Verratti: A very inconsequential game with an opponent putting him under no pressure. He touched the ball, dished out some passes, keep things moving and fluid, but that's pretty much it. Good, not remarkable. Pretty much did everything he could with a game offering him no real chances for excelling.

7 - Ruiz: Without doing anything really inspiring, Ruiz dunked the cookie for the second game in a row scoring the opener for PSG on Saturday after stealing a chance from Hugo Ekitike. That's a little bit harsh on Hugo, but that's also praising the young lad as his run perfectly fooled the defender and Ruiz read the play so well to take advantage of the situation and score a close-range beauty with the exterior part of his left boot.

5 - Vitinha: Played a little over 25 minutes off the pine as Ekitike was preferred in a three-man forward line instead of a three-man midfield. Completed pretty much all of his passes while also shooting once on target, but it's not that he will pop up in your weekend highlight shows.

NR - Zaire-Emery: Less than 10 minutes on the pitch but all of them tidily played. Should be getting more minutes, probably, but the 3-4-3 formation cut his chances of playing with one fewer player than usual in the midfield.

5 - Renato Sanches: He got more than 25 minutes coming off the bench and somehow found a way to finish the game without getting injured. Jokes aside, Sanches had a nice game under no pressure. He moved the ball without generating much danger, but at least he was pinpoint accurate with his short and long passes. That said, he still found a way to lose a couple of balls.
