Keylor Navas (6)
While his team suffered a lot, he released two superb parades in front of Mahrez (33rd, 61st). Can’t do much on both goals.
Nuno Mendes (5)
Considering the number of balls hit by Mahrez, it was said that the young Portuguese was going to have a long evening, especially as Man City are very good at exploiting the spaces behind the full-backs. It is from his side that the goal of the equalizer comes, but he was outnumbered. An interesting offensive contribution, with a solitary raid (27th) and a good stint on Mbappé’s goal (50th)
Achraf Hakimi (4)
Like Mendes, he has seen the waves roll by to his side, and he cannot be held solely responsible for defensive tactical flaws in this area. A good rescue in front of Mahrez all the same (18th). Offensively, we have seen very little of it.
Like Kimpembe, he had to multiply interventions in the first period. Heroic for a long time, he ended up giving in too.
Ander Herrera (4)
Holder in the absence of Marco Verratti, the Spaniard is no longer the same as at the start of the season. A dangerous ball loss (7th) and limited influence in the game, even if he is involved in the action of the goal (50th).
Lionel Messi (4)
When the PSG is only defending, its usefulness in the game is almost zero. Once again, the Argentinian walked a lot, but he saved his match with a center that turned into an assist for Mbappé (50th).
Rather interesting in the creation, with a good pass for Mbappé (44th) and a contribution to the action which brings the goal (50th). But he misses a big ball 2-1 in stride (74th).
Kylian Mbappé (6)
He had legs, again. He badly manages his first opportunity (44th) but does not miss his second, for what could have been the perfect hold-up (50th).
Cancelo (6) and Walker (7)
The Man City side still managed a very clean match, each in their register, Cancelo with his home passes and Walker with his defensive returns and his decisive showing on the equalizing goal (63rd)
Bernardo Silva (7)
In a role of fake number 9, but a real handyman, the former Monegasque has yet signed a full match. Rewarded by his assist on the winning goal of Jesus (76th)
Riyad Mahrez (7)
He was found systematically in the first half, and embodied the danger all by himself. Deprived of a goal by a rescue from Hakimi (18th) and decisive stops from Navas (33rd, 61st). His center brings the winning goal (76th).
Gabriel Jesus (not rated)
Entered in the 54th minute instead of a too discreet Zinchenko, the Brazilian brought presence in the area. Result: an assist (63rd) and a goal (76th).
Despite their defeat in Manchester, PSG recorded an eighth consecutive qualification for the knockout stages of the Champions League.
the PSG took a real slap on Wednesday on the lawn of the Etihad Stadium facing Manchester city. Because the score (2-1) is flattering to say the least for the Parisians, outclassed in the first period.

However, the capital club took advantage of the defeat of FC Bruges against Leipzig (0-5), to validate its qualification for the knockout stages of the Champions League. His tenth in a row.
And this consistency is remarkable to say the least. In the history of the competition, only five other clubs have indeed managed to experience such a series: Real Madrid, FC Barcelona, Bayern Munich, AC Milan and Arsenal.
