Helpless to stop both goals, although his parry led to Braga's first. Reacted well to falling behind and denied Eder on two occasions late in the second half. Was left exposed at times, as his side desperately sought an equalizer.
Distributed the ball impressively at times, but also had his dodgy moments. Was bailed out by his goalkeeper on one occasion in the first half when he missed his kick and presented Eder with a clear chance. Booked.
Found the game more of a test of his powers of concentration - having little to do for long periods, before being tested on the counterattack. Found Eder a handful all night and will not have been pleased with the marking for the visitors' late second.
Not a great night for the former Arsenal man, who did little wrong, but made little impact on the game. Seemed more intent on arguing with his opponents and the referee at times than making a positive contribution.
Had a fine early shot well saved and whipped in some dangerous set pieces. However, like many of his teammates, Colak was unable to sustain his performance and faded badly. Subbed second half.
A rather inane performance from the captain who got on the ball often enough, but failed to control the tempo of the game. Tried to link defense and attack with little effect and was unable to track Micael well enough to deny him the opening goal.
Started brightly and linked well down the left early on. Has undoubted crossing ability, but was unable to get into good positions often enough and went missing after Braga got its nose in front.
Started the game like a world beater, but ended the game looking far from it. Dictated the tempo early on, but faded badly after Braga went ahead. Tried to play through the Portuguese on occasion, but was shut down by Viana and Custodio.
Industrious performer who gave his opponent Ismaily a tough opening to the encounter. However, the wide midfielder swapped flanks midway through the first half and was unable to get any change out of Leandro Salino. Subbed at the break.
Worked hard, but unable to find the key to unlock Braga's defense. Charged around willingly, but unable to link up effectively with Yilmaz and limited to scappy efforts on goal that came to nothing.
Industrious and energetic for much of the evening, but unable to provide any end product. Missed a decent headed opportunity in the first half and saw further efforts in the second half go straight at Beto.
Not one to inspire a lot of confidence, with his tendency to flap rather than catch, but dealt well with everything all night. Marshaled his defense well and secured a well-earned clean sheet.
Started shakily and was glad to see the back of Amrabat when the Gala midfielder swapped wings. Grew in confidence, however, and played his part in a solid defensive display.
Steady, but unspectacular for much of the encounter before saving his best for last with a vital clearance at the death. Played his part in an impressive collective effort.
Headed a great early chance wide from Viana's freekick, but soon settled into his rhythm in the center of midfield. Pressed the ball well and ensured that Melo and Colak were unable to unlock Braga through the center of the park.
A good performance with and without the ball that was topped off with a goal. Fully deserved his name on the scoresheet for his desire to follow up Amorim's effort. Subbed late on.
Midfielder has an eye for goal and was instrumental in linking attack and defence for Braga. Heavily involved in the opening goal - his fierce effort rebounding kindly for midfield partner Micael to slot home.
An intelligent and tidy performance from the full-back, who linked up well with his captain, Alan. Gala were unable to get any change out of him all night, as he doggedly stuck to his task. A threat going forward too.
Broke up the hosts' attacks with aplomb and used the ball intelligently. The former Newcastle man is enjoying the twilight of his career with Braga and his midfield axis with Custodio gave his side a solid base in both attack and defense. Booked.
The forward's pace and willingness to work the channels gave Braga a useful outlet, and his rangy running led to both of the visitor's goals. Unable to score himself , however, despite two clear opportunities in the first half.
With his side on the backfoot, Braga's captain found it hard to make his mark early on. Became increasingly influential as the game wore on and a threat on the counterattack. No surprise, therefore, when he clinically converted Braga's late second.
