    Ivan Kelava

    A brave performance throughout the game. Did well to throw his body on the ball to stop a definite goal in the first half.

  • Luis Ibáñez

    Luis Ibáñez

    Good wing play and was unwilling to let the poor playing surface deter his attacking threat. His rifled shot from 25 yards was the highlight of his game.

  • Josip Simunic

    3.00

    Josip Simunic

    A few shaky moments but a decent display in what was a difficult game for all involved. Drew on his experience to deal with several dangerous Kiev attacks.

  • Sime Vrsaljko

    Sime Vrsaljko

    Good in the air but poor on the floor, mainly because of the conditions.

  • Domagoj Vida
    11

    3.00

    Domagoj Vida

    Booked for a silly foul in the early stages but made up for it with a brilliant interception just after half-time.

  • Arijan Ademi
    17

    3.00

    Arijan Ademi

    In a game riddled with mistakes, Ademi looked one of the calmest players on the pitch. Played some neat passes.

  • Mateo Kovačić
    26

    3.50

    Mateo Kovačić

    A decent all-round performance that will please the midfielder. Put in several strong challenges.

  • Sammir
    26
    1
    3.50

    Sammir

    A very, very impressive contribution, with perhaps the one criticism that he should not be so scared to shoot. His reluctance to pull the trigger on several occasions put a downer on his otherwise top-drawer showing.

  • Marcelo Brozović
    10

    2.00

    Marcelo Brozović

    Booked for a horrific tackle early in the second half of what was a frustrating individual performance. Substituted after 70 minutes.

  • Fatos Beciraj

    1.50

    Fatos Beciraj Flop of the Match

    A game that the forward will want to forget. A shocking miss to level the game when he spooned a one-on-one.

  • Duje Cop
    12
    2
    3.00

    Duje Cop

    Smashed the woodwork in the first 45 minutes but perhaps should have done better to clear the ball for Yarmolenko’s opener. Replaced after the hour mark.

Substitutions

  • Josip Pivarić

    Josip Pivarić

    Never got into the game after coming on.

  • Ivan Krstanović

    3.50

    Ivan Krstanović

    Came on as a sub and won a penalty in the dying seconds. kept his nerve to slot it home and earn his side a point.

  • Maksym Koval

    0
    3.50

    Maksym Koval

    Did brilliantly considering how poor the visibility was. Commanded his box well and looked convincing at all times. Unlucky to concede a penalty late on.

  • Betão
    2
    0
    2.00

    Betão

    Struggled as much as anybody with the state of the pitch and had a fair few hairy moments towards the end of the first half.

  • Taras Mykhalyk
    0

    2.00

    Taras Mykhalyk

    Looked nervous and often caused his team problems with his frantic actions. Almost gifted Zagreb a goal when his hesitation led to him slipping in his own penalty area.

  • Taye Taiwo
    6
    1
    3.50

    Taye Taiwo

    Used his powerful frame to get in the way of numerous attacks from the opposition. A solid performance from the defender.

  • Miguel Veloso
    7

    2.50

    Miguel Veloso

    Tried some clever balls but the weather acted as a deterrent to his ability. Was quiet in the latter stages of the game.

  • Ognjen Vukojevic
    13
    1
    3.50

    Ognjen Vukojevic

    Provided composure to the game and was dominant in the air. A scuffed pass almost foiled the Zagreb defence before it was smashed into touch.

  • Denys Garmash
    0

    2.00

    Denys Garmash

    Never really got going and showed his frustrations by trying to start a fight with Sammir who, luckily, wasn’t having any of it.

  • Haruna Abdulkarim Lukman
    4

    3.50

    Haruna Abdulkarim Lukman

    Very good at breaking up Zagreb attacks and adapted to the conditions quickly. Lovely passing ability.

  • Dudu
    3

    2.50

    Dudu

    Battled hard but failed to get much change, which is understandable. The flair-filled Brazilian struggled to play in the snow.

  • Andriy Yarmolenko

    4.00

    Andriy Yarmolenko Top of the Match

    An absolutely delightful volley provided him with some extra confidence and he was a constant thorn in Zagreb's side in the second half.

  • B. Ideye

    2.50

    B. Ideye

    Lively in the early stages but didn’t have the impact in the second. Continuously found himself in dangerous positions but failed to score.
