Goal.com was on hand to rate those involved in Gala's comeback at the Estadio AXA, as both Burak and Aydin struck to propel the Turkish club into the knockout stages

By Simon Harrison

  • Quim
    1

    2.00

    Quim

    Made a particularly good save from a Burak Yilmaz strike, which he turned onto the woodwork. However, he looked shaky at times.

  • Nuno Coelho

    2.00

    Nuno Coelho

    Did not have a terrible game, but struggled badly to deal with the threat of Burak.

  • Uwa Elderson Echiejile

    2.50

    Uwa Elderson Echiejile

    Composed in possession throughout and whenever he lost the ball, he made sure he got it back. However, his distribution was poor.

  • Ismaily
    1
    0
    3.00

    Ismaily

    Was the source of the majority of Braga's chances. Worried Muslera with various shots at goal and was unlucky not to get on the scoresheet.

  • Paulo Vinícius de Souza Nascimento
    1
    0
    3.00

    Paulo Vinícius de Souza Nascimento

    Battling performance, but struggled to deal with the lively Yilmaz, just like his partner.

  • Ruben Amorim
    1
    0
    3.00

    Ruben Amorim

    Was disciplined in midfield and calm in possession. Unfortunate to pick up a yellow card.

  • Mossóro
    2
    1
    4.00

    Mossóro

    Was very lively in the first half and took his goal with great poise and class. Has to be said, though, his influence waned in the second period as Gala got back into the game.

  • Leandro Salino
    1
    0
    3.00

    Leandro Salino

    Dealt with Amrabat well when he came on but looked a tad more uncomfortable in the second half when Riera was allowed to push on.

  • Custodio
    1
    0
    2.00

    Custodio

    Difficult to fault his work-rate but he looked out of his depthy at times.

  • Éder
    1
    1
    3.50

    Éder

    Powerful and energetic, he led the line supremely well, offering his side a great target to hit. Probably should have scored, though, after being slipped in on goal by Mossoro.

  • Alan
    2
    1
    3.50

    Alan

    A constant menace down the right-hand side, he created several openings for his side. However, his finishing let him down, producing a horrific mishit before then ballooning another great chance over the bar.

Substitutions

  • Hugo Viana
    1
    0

    Hugo Viana

    His set-piece deliveries were terrible, failing miserably to produce a cross worthy of the name.

  • CARLAO
    1
    0

    CARLAO

    Failed to have any real impact on the game as Gala were firmly on top when he took to the field.

  • Néstor Muslera Micol
    5
    1
    2.50

    Néstor Muslera Micol

    Has to be commended for playing through injury, but the Gala goalkeeper was guilty of some suspect handling throughout the game.

  • Dany Nounkeu
    1
    1
    2.00

    Dany Nounkeu

    Looked unsteady throughout, particularly during a first half in which he looked all at sea.

  • Semih Kaya
    11
    1
    3.50

    Semih Kaya

    Was on hand to defuse several dangerous situations for the visitors and was one of the few who showed the requiste passion throughout.

  • Emmanuel Eboue
    2
    1
    2.50

    Emmanuel Eboue

    Showed some good attacking play and passing, but let himself down with some very sloppy distribution which put his team in trouble at times.

  • Hamit Altıntop
    3
    1
    1.50

    Hamit Altıntop

    Extremely disappointing and showed little fight for the cause. Was rightly substituted at the half-time break.

  • Selçuk İnan
    3
    0
    2.50

    Selçuk İnan

    Got better in the second half but he allowed the game to pass him by in the opening 45 minutes.

  • Felipe Melo
    2
    1
    1.50

    Felipe Melo

    Completely to blame for Braga's opener, botching his attempted clearance before then being beaten all ends up by Mossoro. Went some way towards making amends by playing his part in the winner, but he was poor overall.

  • Riera
    1
    2
    2.00

    Riera

    Practically non-existent in the first half, but became more involved in the second period. Was lucky not to receive a second yellow card, though, after seeming to block off Alan on the edge of his penalty area.

  • Emre Çolak
    2
    1
    2.00

    Emre Çolak

    Worked hard but failed to really make any headway.

  • Johan Elmander
    2
    6
    1.00

    Johan Elmander Flop of the Match

    Desperately poor performance which quite rightly resulted in him being substituted at the break.

  • Burak Yılmaz
    13
    2
    3.50

    Burak Yılmaz

    Always keen to receive the ball, his pace caused constant problems for Braga. Took his goal well, putting a header beyond Quim which the keeper had no chance of reaching.

Substitutions

  • Aydın Yılmaz
    6
    2
    3.00

    Aydın Yılmaz

    Netted the winning goal and his pace opened up Braga down their left flank time and time again, allowing Eboue to enjoy some more freedom.

  • Umut Bulut
    2
    2
    2.00

    Umut Bulut

    Replaced Colak but didn't fare much better than the man he'd replaced.

  • Nordin Amrabat
    6
    1
    2.50

    Nordin Amrabat

    Performed better than Elmander, but failed to have any telling effect on the game.
