Tomasz had little to do despite Wolfsburg’s bright start. No chance with the goal but otherwise looked commanding in his area.
Kept busy early on by Hasebe and Misimovic but soaked up the pressure well and gradually began to influence the game going forward.
Rio wasn’t fazed by Wolfsburg’s two burly strikers – he kept cool under pressure and made his usual quota of timely interventions.
A cynical foul on Grafite earned the Serbian a booking and he was perhaps lucky to stay on the pitch after another poor tackle. Otherwise, the Serbian was typically robust and solid in the air.
Again strengthened his claim to the title of best left-back in Europe – he’s surely the best ball-playing defender around. The Frenchman produced some tremendous pieces of skill.
Showed glimpses of the sparks that lit up the Inonu Stadium a fortnight ago but never really came to life out on the right wing. Missed a good chance midway through the first half.
Always made himself available to receive the ball from the defenders, Ando looked to start United’s attacks and passed well into the forwards. Sprayed the ball about nicely and always looked in control.
After a fairly quiet first half, Michael asserted his authority on the game in the second period. His passing provided width to United’s play and he took his goal remarkably well.
