Paris Saint-Germain: Full Report Card for Every Position for August
Jacques Brinon/Associated Press

They may not have finished on top of the Ligue 1 table come the end of August, but it has been a fairly good start for Paris Saint-Germain this season. The report card for PSG’s first month is full of more positives than negatives, but there is definite room for improvement.

Marking the PSG players on their performances during August will be based on their overall contributions and individual moments of magic. It has been a steady start, with Laurent Blanc having only used 17 players at this stage of the season.

Blanc’s campaign got off to a shaky start in a 2-2 draw away at Stade de Reims. PSG had to come from behind on the opening day, and it took the ability of Zlatan Ibrahimovic to help overcome Reims for a point.

Their first home game ended in a victory, but the 2-0 win over Bastia was overshadowed by Brazilian forward Brandao’s headbutt to Thiago Motta.

Another draw, this time away at Evian, was a disappointment for the Parisians, but what did you expect when they were without their talisman, Ibrahimovic?

The Swedish striker made his point in the final game of Week 4. Starting the game less than 100 per cent fit, the 32-year-old left the pitch after 73 minutes with a hat-trick and having given the rest of the league a warning.

Ibrahimovic and PSG will get better as the season continues, which is a horrible thought for the rest of Ligue 1.

Here is PSG’s full report card for every position for August.
