Player Ratings: Fenerbahce 2-0 Lazio

Goal.com rates the players as Fenerbahce secure a 2-0 win over 10-men Lazio

By Ben McAleer

  • Volkan Demirel
    25
    1
    3.00

    Volkan Demirel

    Bar a first-half header from Ederson, was rarely troubled throughout the 90 minutes. A very quiet evening for the goalkeeper.

  • Egemen Korkmaz
    24
    2
    2.50

    Egemen Korkmaz

    Could have been penalised for a foul on Ederson early in the first half that would have resulted in a penalty, but a solid showing overall from the defender.

  • Joseph Yobo
    24
    4
    3.00

    Joseph Yobo

    Ensured Kozak had a quiet evening and was a calming, commanding influence in the heart of the Fenerbahce defence.

  • Reto Ziegler
    24
    3
    2.50

    Reto Ziegler

    Pushed forward well to support the attack and with the Lazio defence sitting deep, was rarely threatened defensively.

  • Gökhan Gönül
    23
    1
    3.00

    Gökhan Gönül

    Pushed forward from right back well and provided another outlet on the flank as Fenerbahce secured a vital win.

  • Mehmet Topal
    20
    3
    2.50

    Mehmet Topal

    Not the most commandeering of performances from the midfield who relied heavily on his teammate to impress before his substitution.

  • Raúl Meireles
    46
    5
    4.00

    Raúl Meireles Top of the Match

    Controlled proceedings in the middle of the park and came close to opening the scoring early in the second half after striking the post from 25 yards out.

  • Cristian Baroni
    18
    3
    2.50

    Cristian Baroni

    Impressive for Fenerbahce behind Webo and was the main creative hub behind the striker before his second half withdrawal. Disappointing from set pieces, however.

  • Moussa Sow
    32
    2
    3.00

    Moussa Sow

    Forced Marchetti into an excellent save in the first half and perhaps should have scored. Saw a second-half effort drift just wide following the interval before netting the winner from the spot.

  • Dirk Kuyt
    43
    3
    3.50

    Dirk Kuyt

    Worked extremely hard for his side during the encounter and was fully deserving of his goal in the dying embers of the encounter.

  • Pierre Achille Webo
    29
    6
    3.50

    Pierre Achille Webo

    Not the most memorable of games for the striker, but netted a penalty late on to hand his side the initiative heading into the second leg.

Substitutions

  • Mehmet Topuz
    18
    1

    Mehmet Topuz

    Not enough time to make an impact.

  • Salih Uçan
    23
    2
    2.00

    Salih Uçan

    A late cameo for the young midfielder, but he never really had a chance to make an impact during his time on the pitch.

  • Caner Erkin
    22
    4
    2.50

    Caner Erkin

    Replaced Topal in the second half and put in a solid performance in the middle of the park.

  • Federico Marchetti
    13
    10
    2.50

    Federico Marchetti

    Tipped Sow's first time volley onto the post early on. Was beaten for Meireles' strike that struck the post, but impressively denied the Fenerbahce midfielder minutes later. Could do little to deny both goals.

  • Michael Ciani
    12
    6
    3.00

    Michael Ciani

    His physicality was vital in hindering the threat of Webo and was perhaps unlucky to have been on the losing side. Will be vital if Lazio are to overcome the two goal deficit.

  • Stefan Radu
    3
    17
    2.50

    Stefan Radu

    Poor in the heart of the Lazio defence and was unable to contain Kuyt. Struggled with the movement of the Fenerbahce attack.

  • Ederson
    2
    16
    2.50

    Ederson

    Met Candreva's first half cross in the 10th minute, but could only guide his header into the hands of Demirel before limping off on the hour mark.

  • Hernanes
    3
    19
    2.00

    Hernanes

    A quiet evening by his standards, the Brazilian failed to make the desired impact for Lazio and was regularly stifled in the midfield.

  • Alvaro Gonzalez
    3
    14
    2.50

    Alvaro Gonzalez

    A poor game for the midfielder who put in a poor shift on the flank. Could never really get going and it was clear to see during the encounter.

  • Senad Lulic
    13
    10
    2.50

    Senad Lulic

    Saw his attacking impetus stifled through much of the encounter and almost gifted the hosts the opener in the first half following his poor clearance in the build up to Sow's first half volley.

  • Ogenyi Onazi
    7
    19
    1.50

    Ogenyi Onazi Flop of the Match

    Sent off following a second booking for a reckless challenge on Cristian early in the second half. Not the most memorable of encounters for the Nigerian and has likely cost his side a place in the semi-finals.

  • Lorik Cana
    19
    12
    2.50

    Lorik Cana

    Evident he is not a defender and had a very poor game. Struggled with Webo and the Fenerbahce attack.

  • Antonio Candreva
    10
    8
    3.00

    Antonio Candreva

    Handed a lot of freedom down the right and could have nabbed an assist early on after picking out Ederson. Saw his effort in the second half strike the wrong side of the post.

  • Libor Kozák
    5
    14
    2.00

    Libor Kozák

    Isolated on his own up front, regardless of the support of Ederson. His evening was made that much harder by Onazi's red prior to his substitution in the second half.

Substitutions

  • Cristian Ledesma
    2
    16
    2.50

    Cristian Ledesma

    Came on to add another body into the midfield, but struggled to stifle the threat of Meireles.

  • Miroslav Klose
    12
    16
    2.00

    Miroslav Klose

    Isolated when he came on and really struggled to put in a performance during the dying embers of the encounter.
