By Alec Fenn

  • Helton

    3.00

    Helton

    Saved well early on from Veloso's efforts and then Ideye in the second period, but should have done better with Husyev’s goal.

  • Danilo
    19
    0
    4.00

    Danilo

    Every inch the modern full-back. A real source of width for his side with a number of exciting bursts down the right flank.

  • Maicon Pereira Roque
    11

    3.50

    Maicon Pereira Roque

    Enjoyed a quiet evening at centre-back but should never have let Huysev get in front of him for the Kiev goal. Weak defending.

  • Eliaquim Mangala
    12

    3.00

    Eliaquim Mangala

    Did not get forward as much as Danilo on the opposite flank but did a sterling job in keeping the dangerous Yarmolenko at bay.

  • Nicolás Otamendi

    3.00

    Nicolás Otamendi

    Very assured in possession and played the ball out of defence with ease. Was never troubled by the threat of Ideye.

  • Lucho González
    21

    4.00

    Lucho González

    Lively on the ball and supplied the killer pass for Varela’s opener and Martinez’s second. Pulled the strings in midfield.

  • Joao Moutinho

    2.50

    Joao Moutinho

    Had a quiet night. Usually dictates play but did not see much of the ball and when he did he was often pressed in possession.

  • James Rodríguez
    27
    0
    3.00

    James Rodríguez

    Intelligent use of the ball throughout. It was his dinked pass that set Martinez free for his goal. A classy display.

  • Fernando
    13
    1
    3.00

    Fernando

    The deeper of the three central midfielders, his defensive duties were not called upon all too often. Started attacks and kept his passing simple and efficient.

  • Jackson Martínez
    41

    4.50

    Jackson Martínez Top of the Match

    Not involved in much of Porto’s build-up play, but a real livewire in the box. Showed great composure with both of his goals.

  • Silvestre Varela
    19
    1
    3.00

    Silvestre Varela

    His pace and power were a handful all night. Drifted across the frontline to great effect and powered home a stunning opener.

Substitutions

  • Miguel Lopes
    4
    1
    2.50

    Miguel Lopes

    Came on deep into injury-time in a bid to see the game out.

  • Steven Defour
    10
    1
    2.50

    Steven Defour

    Like for like replacement for Moutinho late on. Tightened up the midfield with his more defensive mindset.

  • Christian Twasam Atsu
    17
    1
    2.50

    Christian Twasam Atsu

    Came on for Varela just after the hour and looked to attack Betao each time he got the ball. A tricky customer.

  • Oleksander Shovkovski
    1
    10
    1.50

    Oleksander Shovkovski Flop of the Match

    A poor showing from the goalkeeper. Failed to dominate his area and was rounded in his own six-yard box by Martinez for Porto’s second goal.

  • Betão
    1
    4
    1.50

    Betão

    Gave away several cheap fouls in his own half and gave the ball away on regular occasions, putting Kiev under unnecessary pressure.

  • Taras Mykhalyk
    0
    4
    2.00

    Taras Mykhalyk

    Not the quickest of defenders and always looked susceptible to the ball in behind the back four.

  • Taye Taiwo
    6
    3
    2.00

    Taye Taiwo

    Usually a potent attacking threat but was pegged back by the persistent threat of Rodriguez.

  • Yevhen Khacheridi
    0
    4
    1.50

    Yevhen Khacheridi

    Struggled to get to grips with Martinez and allowed the striker time and space to score in the first-half.

  • Miguel Veloso
    10
    1
    3.00

    Miguel Veloso

    Kiev’s biggest threat. His delivery from set-pieces was excellent and one of those found the head of Husyev to head home.

  • Ognjen Vukojevic
    3
    5
    1.50

    Ognjen Vukojevic

    Failed to provide the back four with enough protection. Looked slow and cumbersome and did not get his foot on the ball.

  • Denys Garmash
    1
    2
    2.50

    Denys Garmash

    Did not produce anything of note on the ball but worked tremendously hard to put pressure on the Porto midfield.

  • Oleh Husyev
    4
    1
    2.50

    Oleh Husyev

    Scored Kiev’s first and was the liveliest of his side's players when in possession. Went on several dangerous solo runs.

  • Andriy Yarmolenko
    7
    1
    2.50

    Andriy Yarmolenko

    Often frustrates with his end product but he did provide a wonderful killer pass for Ideye’s leveller, which made it 2-2.

  • B. Ideye
    8
    0
    3.00

    B. Ideye

    Isolated and not involved for large periods of the game, but then popped up with a brilliant volley to make it 2-2.

Substitutions

  • Niko Kranjcar

    2.00

    Niko Kranjcar

    A surprise substitute. Was brought on with just seven minutes remaining and had no time to make his presence felt.
