Two targets got here to taint a match of excellent high quality.

  • Mbemba (6): all the time so ahead, the Zairian central defender was nevertheless much less outstanding this Sunday, regardless of a recurring domination within the duel. Attention-grabbing within the compensatory dimension, in the course of the rises of Jonathan Clauss, the previous Porto as soon as once more confirmed nice accuracy with the ball, taking part in with out frills.

  • Guendouzi (5): again in a beginning function, the French worldwide was near opening the scoring (tenth), however had a reasonably difficult night.

A parameter from which he was capable of extricate himself, reworking a free kick that he himself had obtained (thirty fifth). Rather more impartial in the course of the second act, he additionally ended up being warned for contesting (79th).
