Scary moment when he stormed off his line and then should have done better in the lead-up to Benfica's third goal.
His commitment was fine but the full-back appeared to be trying almost too hard and had some sloppy, panicky moments on the ball.
Looked more comfortable in his preferred centre-back role. Decent positioning and tidy on the ball.
Tottenham's captain for the night but too sloppy with his defending from set-pieces despite some strong tackles and headers.
Caught out by Rodrigo's run for Benfica's opener. Rarely looked comfortable defensively and was forced to check inside on the ball.
The real, perhaps only, bright point for Spurs. Somewhat isolated on the left but caused Benfica problems when he got on the ball in between the lines. Brilliant free-kick into the top corner from 25 yards to keep his side in the tie.
Booked early on for bringing down Sulejmani and seemed to play within himself thereafter. Good pressure to prevent Benfica counter-attacks.
A very poor display from the winger. Failed to run at Benfica defenders and appeared unwilling to chase balls in behind.
The Brazilian midfielder was full of running but lacked quality on the ball. Not enough creativity and no sights on goal.
A quiet night for the forward. Never really able to get away from the Benfica defenders and the one time he did, he scuffed badly wide when he should have scored.
The youngster was handed a surprise start and showed some nice touches without ever troubling Benfica. Replaced by Soldado 15 minutes from time.
Had no saves of note to make but his handling and distribution were solid when called upon.
On the whole, a very accomplished performance from the centre-back. Powerful up against Adebayor and positioning was solid.
Strong display from the left-back up against Lennon and tidy on the ball.
Almost rock solid at the back and made the difference at the other end with two emphatic finishes from set-pieces.
Decent performance, although perhaps could have done more in attack to exploit Eriksen's lack of defensive workrate.
The Serbian worked hard throughout the game and caused Tottenham problems with his movement in attack.
Full of running in the Benfica midfield as he put Spurs players under pressure and looked to start counter-attacks with precise passing. Forced Lloris into a good save just before Benfica's second goal.
Powerful and effective screen in front of the back four. Denied Spurs space between the lines but did find it a little more difficult when Eriksen drifted inside.
Very impressive display from the Serbian. Had already threatened with his running and vision a couple of times before his lovely pass for Rodrigo's goal.
The focal point of the Benfica attack but lacked the mobility to get away from Tottenham's centre-backs. Replaced by Gaitan in the 65th minute.
Scored the first goal of the tie in the 29th minute as he ran in behind Naughton and produced a fantastic finish low into the corner. Speed and left foot always a threat on the counter-attack.
