PSG 1-3 Manchester United (3-3 agg): Champions League player ratings

Marcus Rashford and Romelu Lukaku took star billing, while Gianluigi Buffon and Thilo Kehrer had a match to forget

Paris Saint-Germain 4-2-3-1

Gianluigi Buffon
The Italian allowed Lukaku’s second goal and should he have been quicker out to before the first? 4

Thilo Kehrer
Backpass allowed Lukaku’s early strike; always less assured than his defensive colleagues. 4

Thiago Silva
Calmest in a shaky back four when United attacked. Also found Alves with precise diagonals. 6

Presnel Kimpembe
Stood up to Lukaku’s threat at times but gave away what proved the crucial Rashford penalty. 5

Juan Bernat
Drove along the left constantly; slid home to level on the night and might have had a second. 7

Dani Alves
Rattled by an early Pereira challenge but his pass slipped in Mbappé before Bernat’s equaliser and was inventive. 7

Marco Verratti
Not quite the force he was in the opening leg, the Italian nearly scored an own goal. 7

Was part of a PSG midfield that, like its United counterpart, did not protect the defence enough. 6

Julian Draxler
Dropped deep but influence was sporadic due to PSG often targeting the flanks. Taken off. 5

Kylian Mbappé
A constant outlet, creating PSG’s opener yet while he punched holes in visitors he did fluff chances. 7

Ángel Di María
Sharp link-up play but not as bright as he was in the first leg. Goal was (correctly) adjudged offside. 6

Subs Leandro Paredes (for Kehrer, 70) 5; Thomas Meunier (for Draxler, 70) 6; Edinson Cavani (for Alves, 90) 6.

Manchester United 4-4-2

David de Gea
Could do little to prevent Bernat’s goal but saved what looked a certain second. 7

Victor Lindelöf
Swede was part of United rearguard given the runaround but improved after the break. 7

Chris Smalling
Senior defender struggled to organise but he made one superb challenge on quicksilver Mbappé. 7

Eric Bailly
Right-back was terrorised by Bernat before limping off on 35 minutes – surely to United fans’ relief. 5

Ashley Young
Dozing when Bernat ran inside to create a chance for Mbappé but settled and made a crucial clearance. 7

Scott McTominay
Struggled at first to protect the defence but he had a fine second half of thwarting No 6 play. 7

Looked to get among PSG and the senior midfielder in the XI became better and better. 7

Andreas Pereira
Misplaced touches and passes evident, but showed flashes of invention before being replaced. 5

Luke Shaw
Began tentatively but composure tightened his contribution; he ended as United’s best defender. 7

Marcus Rashford
Nerves of steel to score the winner. Press on Kehrer created the error that led to the opener and snap-shot at Buffon presaged Lukaku’s second. 9

Romelu Lukaku
Impressive dream start with a super solo effort became even better when he slotted a second. 8

Subs Diogo Dalot (for Bailly, 36) 7; Tahith Chong (for Pereira, 80) 7; Mason Greenwood (for Young, 87) 7.
