Player Ratings: Atletico Madrid 2-2 Porto

Porto netted two crucial away goals in their first leg meeting with Atletico de Madrid in Vicente Calderon despite their keeper's clanger. watched the game and gave each player a mark out of ten.

Leo Franco 6
- Could have done little about either goal and was comfortable with anything else that came his way.

Seitaridis 5
- Moved forward when he could and helped there, but it was at the back where he was caught out far too often down the flank.

Antonio Lopez 6.5 - While Hulk may have complained a lot of the time, the Spanish full-back won the majority of his tussles with the bulky forward.

Ujfalusi 6
- Did better than his partner and did not show the same inconsistencies that meant that Porto looked likely to find a gap each time they went forward.

Pablo 5 - Had something of a shocker as he completely misjudged the ball in the air for the first goal and showed some very nervy touches after that.

Assuncao 7
- Looked calm on the ball and provided some telling passes as well as providing the hosts with some much-needed mobility in midfield.

Raul Garcia 6.5 - Showed some good touches with his passes and had one fizzing shot, but he also showed he can put the boot in with some tough tackles.

Simao 6.5
- His running was vital to Atletico's forward movements, but he could not beat the Porto defence on as many occasions as he would have liked.

Maxi 6 - Having opened the scoring he was unable to find another clear opening and the coach was right to take him off try something different.

Forlan 6.5 - A constant cause of problems for the visitors as he looked to provide chances for himself and his team-mates.

Aguero 6 - Laid on a superb pass for the opening goal, but was virtually anonymous after that and maybe the new arrival has been keeping him awake at night.


Pongolle 5 - Came on amid boos at Aguero having been replaced and was also unable to have much influence on the game.

Maniche 6
- Looked to create against his former side and did well to find space for a shot and to involve himself in midfield.

De La Cuevas 5
- Came on for Maxi in what proved to be another unpopular change among the fans, but not because he entered the encounter.


Helton 4.5
- At this level a mistake of the magnitude that he made just before the break to let Atletico score is not good, but he retained his confidence.

Sapunaru 6
- Stepped in to replace Fucile after he was injured in the warm-up and did well until he too picked up a knock and had to go off.

Cissokho 6 - Moved forward when he could and his strong run and cross set up Porto's second goal of the evening, while he was also competent at the back.

Bruno Alves 6.5
- Atletico's chances were limited and he could have been on a winning team had his keeper not taken his eye off the ball.

Rolando 6.5
- Will have been disappointed to have seen the first goal scored quite so easily, but helped limit the hosts to any more simple chances.

Fernando 6
- Looked much more comfortable on the ball than his opposite numbers at the other end, but will have sympathy with his keeper.

Raul Meireles  6.5 - Put himself about and Porto can thank him for breaking up the play and keeping Atletico's front men quiet on a number of occasions.

Lucho 6.5 - Was not seen enough as perhaps he should have been when he is clearly the player that creates the majority of the good things Porto do.

Rodriguez 7 - Very strong and his running cause Atletico's defenders problems down the wings on numerous occasions and they constantly had to watch him.

Lisandro 8 - Two goals and chances to score more meant that he could no more than he did as a striker for an away team in the Champions League.

Hulk 6.5 - Spent quite a lot of time on the floor having either committed a foul or having been fouled, but he also showed some good touches.


Pedro Emanuel 5.5 - Slotted in seamlessly and did well enough at a time when the game was already slowing down.

Sektioui 5 - Porto left their changes until late and he did not have much time to have any great effect on the encounter.

Tomas Costa 5
- The same goes for the last of the visitors changes and he will just have been pleased to be given a run.
