Defense struggled to find their feet early against Lorient
Douchez had one of those nights where he really did not have a lot to do, but was the focal point for a few opportunities. He could not be blamed for either goal (the first an own goal), and did produce some fine saves when needed.
Grade: 8.0 / 10
Maxwell had a tough night. His own goal in the 4th minute was unlucky, but gave Lorient the one thing PSG did not want them to have, confidence. He buckled down a little better throughout the match, but overall was average at best.
Grade: 6 / 10
Alex's play was a microcosm of PSG's play in the first half. It appeared they were stuck in low gear, and were somewhat disinterested. His experience was sorely needed especially with Silva not playing, and he left me disappointed with the organization of the defense. His second half was better, and fans better hope he picks his game up before the Champions League.
Grade: 6.5 / 10
The former captain and fan favorite was solid for much of the night. His play was not inspiring, but it was an improvement over the struggles he had the second half of last season. If he continues to get minutes, a return to the high-end form expected of him could be in the cards, but this night was a good start to his season.
Grade: 7.0 / 10
The French international and captain was solid on the night, but was caught out on more than one counter attack. After halftime, he looked more focused, and put together a very good second half.
