Led from the 27th minute after a goal from Pasalic, the Parisians waited until the last minutes of the match against Atalanta (2-1) to reverse the situation and qualify for the semi-finals of the Champions League. If Navas, Neymar or Kimpembe were at the level and the entries of Choupo-Moting and Mbappé determining. the performances of Sarabia and especially Icardi, were very insufficient.
Navas: 7 . Before his injury, he was the only Parisian really at the level and allowed his team to keep their heads above water. He made a solid parade in front of Gomez (3rd) then an exceptional save with his left hand to get the ball out of his skylight on an attempt by the header of Hateboer (11th). He also made a perfect dive on a header from Caldara even if he was signaled offside (12th). However, he can do nothing on the curled shot of Pasalic (1-0, 27th). Replaced by Rico (79th).
Kehrer: 4 . Few actions from Bergamo came from its side. He remained serious but never took any offensive initiative.
Thiago Silva: 4.5. Jostled in the air and sometimes floating in his position, the captain did not have enough influence, especially to get his team back on track.
Kimpembe: 6. He was the best defender by far. Concentrated and aggressive, he was rather inspired on his long raises. Unfortunate on the opening of the score where his intervention countered by Zapata benefits Pasalic (1-0, 27th).
Bernat: 5.5. For his first official match since the resumption, he went the distance. His technique and his sense of placement allowed him to secure his hallway. By going up on Toloi, he leaves Pasalic free on the opening scoring (1-0, 27th). Marquinhos: 5. He got caught in the middle where the density of Italians disturbed Parisians. However, he did not bring serenity and his reminders lacked sharpness. His position is clearly not in the middle but he saves PSG by equalizing in the 90th.

Herrera: 3. Often ahead in duels, he lacked speed in transitions. Replaced by Draxler (72nd), transparent.
Gueye: 4 . He put the impact and tried to raise the block in support of the raises. Sometimes caught up in the commitment, he did not lend enough help to Bernat by closing his lane. Replaced by Paredes (72nd).
Neymar: 6 . He was the only one to create danger with his dribbling and speed. But it showed astonishing waste. Alone against Sportiello, he opens his right foot too much and strikes next (3rd). After a missed center for Icardi (19th), he strikes next to 20 meters at the end of an action where he eliminates three players (28th). He then kicks a coiled free kick not powerful enough (35th) before completely missing his left strike on a ball offered by Hateboer (42nd). A new strike blocked by Sportiello (76th) before being at the initiative of the two goals.
Sarabia: 2 . He struggled to enter the game. Apart from a cross to Neymar deflected with the tip of the foot by the defense (22nd), he missed almost everything. He suffered in the face of the commitment of the Italian defense and always lacked inspiration. Replaced by Mbappé (60th) who immediately brought speed and percussion. His powerful shot is repelled by Sportiello (73rd), then he centers perfectly for Choupo-Moting, decisive and finally hero of the match, on the goal of the qualification (90th + 3).
Icardi: 1 . The Argentine was completely transparent in a game where he hardly touched the ball. He had no complicity with Neymar with whom they often played out of time. On a cross from Sarabia, he lacked speed to cut the ball rolling (41st). Replaced by Choupo-Moting (79th) who initiates the action of equalizer then scores the goal of qualification. Huge.
