Made a great save from Mkhitaryan in the first half but could not do anything to stop Shakhtar from scoring five goals.
Misjudged a number of headed clearances and found the pace difficult to manage.
Delivered a delicate ball into the box for Lorentzen's goal.
Progressively got deeper as the match went on as he struggled to contain the Shakhtar front-line.
Constantly provided an outlet on the right wing as he continually pressed on. Delivered a number of dangerous balls into the box.
Made little impact on the match as he was outplayed by Fernandinho in the centre of midfield.
Scored a well-taken goal with a brilliant first touch. He had other chances to score but regularly missed the target.
Broke up Shakhtar attacks well and maintained his defensive mentality but was often wasteful in possession.
Playing a deeper role, played simple balls forward and maintained the flow of the team.
Nordsjaelland's biggest threat on the ball, he tested Srna throughout with his pace and delivered a fantastic ball into the box for the first goal.
Opened the scoring with a simple finish, but otherwise rarely saw the ball at his feet.
Rarely tested during the match, but was left isolated for both of Nordsjaelland's goals.
Struggled to play against Joshua John. His lack of pace was evident towards the end of the match.
Dominant in the air all game, looked comfortable dealing with the lone striker, Nordstrand.
Pushed on very well all game and looked defensively sound against Lorentzen.
Displayed a fine range of passing and was rarely worried by anything he had to deal with. May have closed down Lorentzen a little tighter for his goal.
Good vision and contribution from the centre of midfield. His calm passing was the foundation of many counter attacks.
His pace frightened the Nordsjaelland defence from the start. Scored two; the second a brilliant swerving drive into the far corner.
His tricky, quick feet were always dangerous on the right flank, and he provided the assist for Luiz Adriano's second goal.
A constant threat throughout the game. He did very well bringing the ball into the opposition's half. His pull back from the by-line created Willian's second goal.
Terrific work-rate and created many openings but also missed several opportunities while in on goal.
Scored three goals but the first was highly controversial and unsporting.
