    Opened the scoring with a simple finish, but otherwise rarely saw the ball at his feet.

  • Joshua John
    30

    4.00

    Joshua John

    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.

Substitutions

  • Anders Christiansen

    Andriy Pyatov

    11
    23
    3.50

    Yaroslav Rakytskyy

    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.

  • Taras Stepanenko
    12
    26
    3.50

    Taras Stepanenko

    Good vision and contribution from the centre of midfield. His calm passing was the foundation of many counter attacks.

  • Fernandinho
    44
    22
    4.50

    Fernandinho

    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.

  • Willian
    134
    29
    5.00

    Willian Top of the Match

    His pace frightened the Nordsjaelland defence from the start. Scored two; the second a brilliant swerving drive into the far corner.

    24
    4.00

    Henrikh Mkhitaryan

    Terrific work-rate and created many openings but also missed several opportunities while in on goal.

  • Alex Teixeira
    37
    23
    4.00

    Alex Teixeira

    His tricky, quick feet were always dangerous on the right flank, and he provided the assist for Luiz Adriano's second goal.

  • Luiz Adriano
    51
    730
    4.00

    Luiz Adriano

    Scored three goals but the first was highly controversial and unsporting.

    Brought on late in the game but headed the ball down to Luiz Adriano for the striker to seal his hat-trick.
