Gueye (still) very visible

Absent against Metz (1-2), Idrissa Gueye made a comeback very noticed in the Paris midfield.

The Senegalese international, still present in the recovery, regularly came to provide solutions near the Montpellier surface.

Omnipresent, he was able to compensate for the awkwardness of his attackers by opening the scoring with an overpowering strike under the bar (14th).

Already his third goal in Ligue 1 this season.

Marquinhos solid at the post

In a Parisian defense rarely worried, Marquinhos delivered a performance full of serenity.

The Parisian captain, vigilant on the Hérault centers, was not surprised once against the Montpellier attackers.

A full match.

At his side, Presnel Kimpembé also made a very solid copy.


The lack of efficiency of Mbappé and Neymar

As against Metz, the Parisians displayed a huge amount of waste in the last gesture. The capital club, which waited until the end of the match to take shelter permanently, badly negotiated many opportunities this Saturday, like Kylian Mbappé and Neymar. The two Parisian stars, uninspired and very confused, have particularly "harvested". An evil that should not become recurrent for PSG. Against Manchester City on Tuesday, Mauricio Pochettino's men will have to be more efficient.

Ristic guilty

In difficulty in the left lane of the Montpellier defense, Mihailo Ristic had a bad evening. Its responsibility is engaged on the two Parisian goals. The Serbian side involuntarily passed the ball to Di Maria on the opener, before leaving a lot of space behind his back to Draxler on the break.

Montpellier too tender

Very spectacular since the start of the season, the MHSC came to the Parc des Princes with real offensive ambitions.

But the 4-2-3-1 set up by Olivier Dall'Oglio did not find the solutions to worry the PSG in the game. The Héraultais, only dangerous on a free kick from Savanier (18th) or a strike halfway from Mavididi (59th), did not put in enough physical intensity to hurt the Parisians and get a real highlight.
