PSG – Dortmund (0-1) scores: Paris not up to par

A look back at PSG’s defeat at the Parc against Dortmund (0-1) which deprived them of the final, with the notes of the match.

Gianluigi Donnarumma (5) : a very good save in the first half, but we can’t help but see him at fault on the German goal. First by not reacting more quickly to Marquinhos’ missed pass, then to the corner where he could go out.

Achraf Hakimi (5) : a lot of activity on the right side, but too many crosses for anyone and missed easy passes.

Marquinhos (6) : apart from his complicated pass to Donnarumma which led to an avoidable corner, the captain was the best Parisian this evening. And just saying that says it all…

Lucas Beraldo (4.5) : directly involved in the goal (he lets Hummels score), author of two or three failed interventions, we never really felt him gaining the upper hand on Füllkrug.

Nuno Mendes (5.5) : this time, the Portuguese full-back was not caught by Sancho, except perhaps once, without consequence. For the most part, he won, and almost scored, but his ball smashed against the post.

Vitinha (5.5) : we didn’t see enough of him apart from the last 20 minutes, when it was too late. We would have liked to see him try more and show himself higher.

Zaire-Emery (5) : like his team, we did not see him in percussion and forward play. Much too shy for a Champions League semi-final.

Fabian Ruiz (5) : a decent first period, but too few offensive initiatives and accelerations to get the game going. In the end, it didn’t help much.

Ousmane Dembélé (3.5) : a completely failed match. It’s quite simple, he missed at least one pass in three. And again… The Parisian number 10 has always made the wrong choices and has never been dangerous.

Gonçalo Ramos (4) : interesting for his defensive withdrawals, the PSG n°9 was too clumsy offensively. And above all, his tenure showed that he did not fit into Luis Enrique’s playing pattern.

Kylian Mbappe (5) : we expected a lot more from a potential Ballon d’Or. Even if he still had two or three players marking him, he should have done much better. PSG couldn’t find him either.

On the side of Dortmundthe central hinge Hummels – Schlotterbeck was remarkable, when the whole team deserved to go to the final.
