Confronted with eleven absences, including those of Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Neymar, Verratti, Gueye and Paredes, Thomas Tuchel aligned an unprecedented formation in Dijon with the return of Thiago Silva, the first of Mitchel Bakker or the establishment of Cavani in a system in 4-4-2. Rather average in the first period, Paris crushed his opponent (6-1) after passing in 3-5-2 after the break and quietly validated his qualification for the semi-finals of the Coupe de France.
Navas: 5. No more clean-sheet series. For the third time in a row, the Ticos could not prevent the opposing attack from shaking its nets. Powerless on Chouiar's low shot at the foot of his left post (13th), he has nothing to do but go get the ball in the back of the net.
Meunier: 5. If he had not taken the ball with his hand, the Belgian could have offered his 200th goal to Cavani. But apart from this one, logically sanctioned by the referee after the use of video, his centers lacked precision, as did his defensive intensity retreats. Replaced by Kurzawa (75th).
Kehrer: 6. He is not there to help Thiago Silva close the axis on Chouiar's victorious breakthrough. But then, he is sharp in his interventions and present in the air and on the cover. He replaced Silva and embarrassed Cadiz who was running alone on goal (41st).
Silva: 5. Absent for four games, the Brazilian did not bring his usual serenity and technique. His balloon lost to Cadiz, in the position of last defender, could have been expensive. He saved his match by scoring the third goal with an uncrossed head without even having to jump (50th). Replaced by Bernat (61st).
Bakker: 6. He couldn't have asked for a better start. For his first start, the Dutchman took only 50 seconds to be decisive, his center from the left being pushed into his own nets by Lautoa (1). He is also at the start of the action which brings Sarabia's 4th goal, but he lacks benchmarks in defensive tasks.

Draxler: 6. A mystery. First very neutral in the first period, he suddenly tears off to offer the second goal to Mbappé (44th). Much more at ease in the second half, he could have finished with two assists if the Bondy boy had not spoiled his new offering.
Kouassi: 6. Tenured for the seventh time this season, the 17-year-old boy suffered in the first half in the midfield. More comfortable in second when he backs up in defense, at his real post.
Herrera: 5. He deluded a few minutes before losing the full axis of the ball which brought Chouiar's goal. Abusing mistakes, he is caught up by his lack of rhythm. Replaced by Aouchiche (83rd).
Sarabia: 7. In the absence of Neymar and Di Maria, he was the technical surety. With his pass quality, the Spanish left-hander steered the game. He scored two goals and offered a decisive pass to Thiago Silva.
Mbappé: 7. He tried a lot to use his speed, sometimes lacked precision in his transmissions and also altruism. He nevertheless marks his 24th goal of the season at the end of a race of which he has the secret (44th) before being involved in the two goals of Sarabia (55th, 90th) and seeing his center for Cavani deflected in his goal by Coulibaly (86th).
Cavani: 4. Three days after capsizing the Park with a 199th goal, the Matador did not have the same success for his second start in 2020. Apart from his acrobatic chisel blocked by Runarsson (14th) and his Logically denied 200th goal, the Uruguayan, very nervous, was not to his advantage.
