    Neto Top of the Match

    Pulled off at least three world-class saves to keep his side ahead in the tie, including a double stop on Muriel and Lopez right at the death.

  • Gonzalo Rodríguez

    Gonzalo Rodríguez

    Did not look comfortable with the pressure around his box and was forced to hack it away often, giving possession right back to the opposition.

    Modibo Diakite

    Though he let Silva run in behind once, he still did a decent job of forcing the Udinese wing-back away from goal.

  • Stefan Savic

    Stefan Savic

    Won tackles and kept the opposition at bay with some crucial interventions before injury prematurely ended his evening.

  • Manuel Pasqual

    3.50

    Manuel Pasqual

    Opened the scoring with a volley of sublime quality, and was fired up for the rest of the evening, refusing to give an inch when faced with a challenge.

  • David Pizarro

    David Pizarro

    Ran the show for the home side whenever they looked to attack, playing some incisive passes forward and helping maintain possession during crucial spells.

  • Alberto Aquilani

    Alberto Aquilani

    Worked hard, but did not offer his team much offensively and was often left chasing the opposition midfielders.

  • Juan Cuadrado
    0
    0
    3.50

    Juan Cuadrado

    Sent the Artemio Franchi into raptures with a fabulous strike from outside the box. Misses the final after costly booking.

  • Mati Fernández

    3.50

    Mati Fernández

    Accurate passing, and a constant threat to attack the ball from the top of the box. Forced the opposition keeper to work more than once.

  • Joaquín

    3.50

    Joaquín

    Made his mark on the tie with a beautiful and agile cushioned header to lay on Pasqual's opening goal.

  • Alessandro Matri

    Alessandro Matri Flop of the Match

    Achieved little more than coughing up a few silly free kicks for upending the opposition centre backs.

Substitutions

  • Marvin Compper

    Marvin Compper

    Route on defending in his short spell on the pitch.

  • Ryder Matos

    Ryder Matos

    Never really saw the ball much in attack as his side were defensive in the latter stages.

  • Simone Scuffet

    3.50

    Simone Scuffet

    Tough to blame him for conceding given the sheer quality of both strikes, but responded well to whatever else was thrown his way.

  • Danilo
    0
    0
    3.00

    Danilo

    Took care of Matri with little trouble and was generally sound and reliable in the heart of the defence.

  • Maurizio Domizzi
    0
    0
    3.00

    Maurizio Domizzi

    Had a very commanding game, but lost it in the final moments picking up a needless red card for an overreaction.

  • Silvan Widmer
    0
    0
    2.50

    Silvan Widmer

    Never offered his side the requisite width from the right flank, which left his side rather short of options down that wing.

  • Gabriel Silva
    0
    0
    3.00

    Gabriel Silva

    Overlapped generally well, and was at the end of a few dangerous moments. Far more focused on his offensive duties today.

  • Thomas Heurtaux
    0
    0
    3.50

    Thomas Heurtaux

    Defended stoutly on the right side, making sure that Joaquin did not offer much after his assist.

  • Allan
    0
    0
    3.50

    Allan

    Mopped up play very effectively in front of the back three and was calm in possession to boot.

  • Bruno Fernandes
    0
    0
    2.50

    Bruno Fernandes

    Got involved often in the attacking third, but all too often, the end product was not of the required standard. Frustrated the away fans.

  • Roberto Pereyra
    0
    0
    3.50

    Roberto Pereyra

    Remarkably effective with his passing, creating multiple chances during Udinese's strongest spells.

  • Giampiero Pinzi

    2.50

    Giampiero Pinzi

    Fought hard for everything in the middle, but still, his output was largely average and was guilty of some shameful play acting.

  • Antonio Di Natale

    2.50

    Antonio Di Natale

    Missed a glorious chance in the first half to get his side on the board, and try as he might, he could not get another opening as promising.

Substitutions

  • Badu
    0
    0

    Badu

    Sent off for dissent despite not kicking a ball.

  • Muriel
    0

    3.00

    Muriel

    His off the ball movement was stellar and he could have tied it up late on, but for a stunning Neto save.

  • N. López
    0
    0
    2.50

    N. López

    Fluffed his lines at the one good chance that fell his way.
