Joel Drommel (5.5/10) – The goalkeeper couldn’t do much for the first goal. However he will feel his positioning could’ve been better for the second goal from Monaco.

Armando Obispo (5/10) – The defender will be disappointed with his play tonight. He didn’t mark Diop for the second goal and the substitute got the winner.

André Ramalho (5.5/10) – not the best performance from the defender tonight. He was sloppy in possession at times and made some unnecessary tackles.

Philipp Max (6.5/10)- The left back was combining well with Gakpo on the left flank. His interchange play was good and he could have got an assist if Gakpo kept his shot on target.

Philip Mwene (6/10)- The defender came more into prominence as Vertessen made his way into the field. He slid in a good ball but the latter’s shot was just wide.

Marco van Ginkel (6/10)- The former Chelsea player had an average game tonight. He had one good chance in the first half with a headed opportunity but that effort went wide of the goal.

Carlos Vinicius (6.5/10)- Carlos Vinicius got a lucky assist at the end. Cody Gakpo did all the work but in the end Carlos Vinicius will get the assist for the equaliser.
