Only infrequently stretched, and his best save came after he had misjudged a cross from Ederson. Commanded his box well and took pressure off his defence by showing a willingness to come and clear centres. Was his side’s penalty hero.
Had few problems down the left channel, keeping Jimmy Briand well under wraps in the main. Didn’t offer much of a threat in an offensive sense, but he didn’t need to.
Allowed Ederson to get away from him in the first half, nearly leading to the concession of an equalising goal, but largely coped well with the threat of the French club.
Was the star of the APOEL side in the first leg, and made countless vital clearances in this match too. Lyon rather played to his strengths, but he would not make a meaningful error all evening. Always seemed to be in the way of OL’s most dangerous movements.
Handed the more difficult task of the two full-backs down the right-hand side, and a number of telling deliveries would be made from his flank. Still contained Michel Bastos fairly well, though, and contributed sensibly going forward.
The only Cypriot-born player in the home side’s ranks, he was the catalyst for the opening goal as he burst down the right channel through a handful of challenges to cross decisively. Probed dangerously but infrequently down his wing.
Busy in the heart of the field, the Portuguese-born player was largely disciplined in his role, but he did show a tendency to jump too quickly into some challenges.
Making only his second Champions League appearance, he was deployed as a deep-lying playmaker, and he was highly influential during periods of APOEL possession, as he retained the ball sensibly and soberly. Tackled very effectively before departing early in extra time.
Made a big impression during his brief cameo in France, and took only eight minutes to open his account in this clash, hammering home from close range. His night was to turn sour in extra time as he was dismissed for picking up a second booking. Contributed well, though.
Led the line as well as he could have been expected to. Was far less isolated than he was in the first leg, and as a result he was able to bring others into play more effectively. Rarely a direct threat on goal, but terrorised the Lyon defence throughout, even if his decision making was dreadful at times. Booked for a late dive in the box.
Deployed as a second striker after making a positive impression from the bench in the first leg, and he wasted a good chance to win the tie for APOEL by flicking wide from close range. Taken off towards the end of normal time.
Was left helpless with the goal, which the defence was entirely culpable for, and dealt with every other situation he faced ably. Didn’t get close to any of the penalties.
In his first season of top level football, he’s tended to look mature beyond his experience, but he was rattled early on in this match, making several elementary errors. Did cover well with some excellent recovery challenges.
Caught out of position as APOEL moved down his flank to set up the opening goal, and this error was typical of a sloppy defensive evening from the former Porto man. Did deliver a couple of wicked crosses, but those should not mask a very poor showing.
Showed moments of class and composure on the ball, but failed to pass on his experience to Kone alongside him. Looks too slow and cumbersome at times, and at others, he was heavily reliant on his knowhow to carry him through.
Badly at fault as APOEL took the lead, as he dithered when he had a chance to clear the initial cross, leading to Manduca having an easy finish. Did deliver some excellent centres, but that should not overshadow his defensive contribution.
The Brazilian has spent much of the season on the fringes of the squad, and he remains something of an enigma. Nearly floated a crossed free kick directly into the net, but this was a rare positive moment on a frustrating night for the Brazil international. Gifted the ball away in a dangerous area, leading to a break APOEL should have made more of.
Has been playing Champions League football for several seasons now, but the holding midfielder still showed a high degree of naivety in this performance, getting caught in possession much too often.
A rare old head in the Lyon midfield, the Swede was on hand to steady the ship after Lyon conceded the opening goal, simply keeping possession comfortably and not making any silly errors. A vital component of this side and probably their only player to look good.
Delivered an inviting first-half cross that was glanced agonisingly wide by Ederson and also tested the home goalkeeper with a long-range free kick. Was not as involved as he needed to be for OL to be successful, though.
Almost anonymous in the first half of this encounter as he failed to put any kind of offensive stamp on the game. Did not offer for the ball enough, and strayed offside needlessly when he did have a chance to do some damage.

Came on with 75 minutes gone. Couldn't contribute heavily.
Introduced to add some extra energy to the attack, which he did commendably during his cameo.
Brought on at the start of extra time and slotted in well.

Thrown into the match towards the end of the first half of extra time and would look bright before suffering penalty heartbreak.
Brought on with 70 minutes gone and added muscle to the Lyon offence. Looked a threat.
