Player Ratings: BATE Borisov 0-2 Lille

Rudi Garcia's inexperienced side recorded a comfortable win against a lifeless home side, with Djibril Sidibe and Gianni Bruno netting a goal apiece in the first half to seal it

    Andrey Gorbunov

    Got a fingertip to Sidibe's opening goal, but could not be blamed for failing to keep it out, and was largely blameless for the visitors' second.

  • Artem Radkov

    Artem Radkov

    Given a tough first half by the pace of Martin and Bruno, with the former leaving him for dead with one particularly impressive run. All too often left exposed by his midfield.

  • Maksim Bordachov

    Maksim Bordachov

    Was uncomfortable dealing with Sidibe and Martin all evening until the former was sent off for tripping him in the final quarter.

  • Egor Filippenko

    Egor Filippenko

    Allowed Bruno to run beyond him for the easiest of finishes in the first half. Never looked comfortable against the pace of Lille's attack, although he did make one crucial intervention when the visitors looked to snatch a third.

  • Denis Polyakov

    2.00

    Denis Polyakov

    Left for dead by Digne in the build-up to Lille's second, and was troubled throughout the first period by the visitors' pace up front. Little to do in the second period.

  • Aleksandr Volodko
    0

    2.50

    Aleksandr Volodko

    Hit one deflected shot early on which posed little problem for Elana. Struggled to make any real impact upon proceedings, and was withdrawn for the more attacking Kontsevoi at the break.

  • Renan Bressan

    Renan Bressan Flop of the Match

    Fired wide under pressure with his only chance of the first half, before being awarded an inexplicable yellow card when tussling for possession. Frustrated with inconsistent deliveries from set pieces.

  • Aliaksandr Hleb

    2.50

    Aliaksandr Hleb

    Struggled to pull the strings in attack for his side against a hard-working Lille midfield, and was replaced late on as BATE looked for a way back into the match. Disappointing night for the experienced attacker.

  • Edgar Olekhnovich
    0
    0
    2.50

    Edgar Olekhnovich

    One of those who seemed to disappear into the turf on what was potentially a huge night for the home side. Replaced by Vasilyuk as BATE went for broke late on.

  • Dmitri Baga

    0
    2.00

    Dmitri Baga

    Epitomised his side's lacklustre display. While he did not put much of a foot wrong, he offered practically nothing in attack against an organised and determined Lille outfit.

  • Vitali Rodionov

    2.00

    Vitali Rodionov

    Spurned a good chance early on when he fired over from close range, and was denied any real opportunities from there on in. A disappointing night for the man who fired one of the three goals past Bayern.

Substitutions

    Mikhail Sivakov

    Replaced Hleb for the final quarter but did not impact proceedings.

  • Artyom Kontsevoi

    2.50

    Artyom Kontsevoi

    Replaced Volodko at half-time and created a good opening for Bressan with his first contribution. Lucky to escape a booking for a needless late lunge on Digne.

  • Roman Vasilyuk

    0

    Roman Vasilyuk

    Came on for the closing minutes but failed to make an impact.

  • Steeve Elana
    1
    0
    3.50

    Steeve Elana

    One catch from Volodko's deflected strike was his only save in the first half, and a similar stop following a goal-mouth scramble was all he had to do in the second as he earned Lille's first clean sheet of the season.

  • Lucas Digne
    1
    0
    3.50

    Lucas Digne

    Skipped past Polyakov all too easily before crossing for Bruno to double the visitors' lead. His inexperience told once or twice as he was caught out of position defensively.

  • David Rozehnal
    0
    0
    3.00

    David Rozehnal

    Made one or two impressive blocks to maintain his side's advantage in the first half, and hooked away importantly following a goal-mouth scramble near the hour mark.

  • Marko Basa
    0
    0
    3.00

    Marko Basa

    Performed well alongside Rozehnal at the heart of defence but was rarely stretched throughout proceedings in Minsk.

  • Djibril Sidibé
    0
    1
    2.50

    Djibril Sidibé

    Opened the scoring with a beautifully curled effort that left Gorbunov with no chance. Given free rein to bomb forward far too often by the BATE left flank. Issued a straight-red card for a late tackle on Bordachov, which warranted a second yellow, but was scarcely worthy of a sending-off on its own.

  • Idrissa Gueye
    1
    0
    3.00

    Idrissa Gueye

    Impressed in attack alongside Kalou and Bruno early on. Performed superbly in tandem with Pendretti at the heart of Lille's midfield.

  • Marvin Martin
    0
    1
    2.50

    Marvin Martin

    Exploited the space down the BATE left all evening as Radkov was left exposed by those in front of him all too often. Replaced late on by Bonnart after the dismissal of Sidibe, allowing the BATE back four a reprieve from his effective attacks.

  • Benoit Pedretti
    1
    0
    2.50

    Benoit Pedretti

    Led by example from the start, using possession well to launch the likes of Kalou and Bruno on to the offensive. An efficient and determined display throughout.

  • Salomon Kalou
    0
    0
    2.50

    Salomon Kalou

    Some clever link-up play with Bruno led to the opening goal, and some more trickery almost carved out another late in the first half. In and out of the action but added important experience to a youthful side. Replaced by Payet for the final 20 minutes.

  • Gianni Bruno
    1

    4.00

    Gianni Bruno Top of the Match

    Enjoyed a dream start to his Champions League career when he poked home following good work from Digne. Looked lively in attack, linking well with Rodelin and Kalou in particular. Replaced by Roux in the second half.

  • R. Rodelin
    0

    2.50

    R. Rodelin

    Linked the attack well in the first half, and held the ball up comfortably. Offered little threat on the hosts' goal himself, but in the end, he did not really need to.

Substitutions

  • Laurent Bonnart

    0

    Laurent Bonnart

    Slotted in at right-back after Sidibe's dismissal and performed solidly against BATE's token efforts in attack.

  • Dimitri Payet
    0
    0
    2.50

    Dimitri Payet

    Replaced Kalou on the 70 minute mark, but was largely restricted to defensive work after his side were reduced to ten men.

  • Nolan Roux
    0
    0
    2.50

    Nolan Roux

    Replaced Bruno for the final half hour, and worked hard to hold up the ball for his side.
