Made one outstanding save from Johannsson in the second half and parried well on at least two other occasions. Was quick off his line more than once in a solid display.
Found himself as the spare man in the hosts’ defence as Johannsson was mostly looked after by defensive partner Gadzhibekov. Played the odd neat pass into midfield.
Got forward well in the early stages and fired over the bar in the opening 10 minutes. Soon faded and was disappointing in defence in the second period as Berghuis had numerous chances.
Assured on the ball and marked Johannsson tightly. Played some good searching balls over the top as Anzhi chased the game.
Showed some nice touches on the right-hand side as he looked to link up Agalarov. Couldn’t quite play the killer ball that was needed and was replaced in Anzhi’s chase for a goal.
The best player in a yellow shirt, he drove the home side forward from midfield and was strong in the tackle. Fired a late free kick narrowly wide while Alvarado did well to deny him as he broke through in the second half.
As with Grigalava, he got forward well from full-back, and shot wide in the first half. Was forced back after the break by Beerens and was eventually booked then substituted late on.
Utilised in a defensive role, he saw the game largely pass him by. His usual playmaking role was inhibited and his night was capped off by a deserved red card in stoppage time.
The focal point of many of Anzhi’s attacks, he held the ball up well when long balls into him were accurate enough to find him. Was sometimes left frustrated as balls over the top floated over him to the goalkeeper.
Never really got into the game as the hosts struggled to make much of an impact going forward. Replaced in the second period after an underwhelming showing.
Was involved in some neat interplay with Bukharov on the edge of the AZ area but couldn’t quite have the impact the hosts would have liked.
Barely troubled in the AZ goal as Anzhi struggled to break through the strong defence in front of him. Distributed well enough with his feet.
An impressive showing as he battled hard with Bukharov and largely won his battle with the striker. Superb block denied Serderov in the dying minutes.
Strong in defence, he kept Smolov quiet as he looked to link up with Bukharov. Shot wide on the rare instance he got forward from full-back.
Picked up a booking in the first half that will see him miss the first leg of the quarter-final, but that didn’t seem to inhibit him. Strong in the tackle and in the air.
Quiet in the first half but came to life after the break as he set up a number of attacks and created space for others to move into. Tested Kerzhakov with a low effort as he continued to push Agalarov back.
A quiet showing in midfield as others around him stood out. Made the odd tackle and kept the ball well enough.
Won plenty of balls in midfield and was strong in the air. Hit the woodwork with a first-half free kick before sending another set-piece wide late on.
Saw the game largely pass him by for the first hour but became a key cog in the AZ effort late on as he broke up Anzhi attacks in midfield and looked to create chances for those in front of him.
Struggled to get into the game in a lone striker’s role, with Gadzhibekov staying tight to him. Showed his class early in the second half as his turn and shot stretched Kerzhakov from 20 yards.
Anonymous in the first half but seemed to have umpteen chances after the break. Tested Kerzhakov with a shot across the goalkeeper’s body before his break led to Mkrtchyan’s late red card.
His pace on the left-hand side caused problems throughout, though his final ball was lacking on occasion. Was never able to properly combine with Johannsson up front.
