Lens 1-1 PSG: Player ratings

    Georginio Wijnaldum’s late header cancelled out Seko Fofana’s earlier strike to rescue a 1-1 draw for Paris Saint-Germain at RC Lens on Saturday night.

    The hosts were evidently unintimidated by their star-studded opposition, although it was the visiting side that came closest to breaking the deadlock in the opening 20 minutes.

    Despite failing to build much coherence in the opening stages, PSG did manage to work the ball to Lionel Messi upfield, only for the Argentinian to send the ball crashing against the upright from range.

    Both teams threatened the breakthrough throughout the first half, and PSG very nearly found it seconds before the interval. Achraf Hakimi’s dangerous cross across the six-yard box was met at the back post by the onrushing Angel Di Maria, before the Argentinian somehow saw his effort saved brilliantly by the flying Jean-Louis Leca.

    Mauricio Pochettino’s men continued to struggle to cope with the energy of their hosts after the break, and eventually deservedly fell behind just after the hour mark – although in controversial fashion.
