PSG rallied to come back from a goal down with 16 minutes to go to win 3-1 versus Montpellier, and it was Neymar (8.5) who got them back into the game with a spectacular free-kick fizzed into the top corner to equalise. He is joined in the forward line by Memphis Depay (8.6), who scored two and assist another for Lyon, and Raphinha (8.6), who recorded two assists for Rennes in a win over Angers.

Nice team-mates Wylan Cyprien (8.9) and Pierre Lees Melou (8.7) scored screamers for Nice as they defeated Metz, with the former also dinking a cheeky penalty down the middle of the goal beyond the keeper for a previous goal. Aleksandr Golovin (8.9) joins those two in midfield after his assist and all-round superb display for Monaco.

Lyon are well-represented in defence, too, as Joachim Andersen (8.7) scored as well as solidly going about his defensive duties, while Kenny Tete (8.3) assisted one of the four goals versus Nimes.

Jordan Amavi (7.9) and Guillermo Maripan (9.2) make up the rest of the back four, with the Monaco defender earning the highest rating of any player this weekend.

In goal is Gautier Larsonneur (8.3) of Brest who was unlucky to be on the losing side against Lille as he made nine saves on the day.
