Player Ratings: Rosenborg 0-2 Lazio
The scoreline allowed Stefano Pioli’s side to largely ease off during the second half, though Balde Keita’s anger still saw him sent off.
Did we get our ratings right? Have your say below.
Andre Hanson – 6 – Outclassed
Found himself very involved in the game and, while he was comfortable on the ball, never looked likely to keep the Biancocelesti out – as it proved. Will have been particularly disappointed with the first goal.
Toro Reginiussen – 5 – Departed
The Rosenborg captain will look back on a disappointing evening made worse by having to depart injured after half an hour.
Holmar Eyjolfsson – 5.5 – Pegged
The Icelandic full-back found himself pressed backwards throughout; acquitted himself adeptly in that situation, but offered little else.
Jorgen Skjelvik – 5.5 – Collected
Was unable to impress himself on the Lazio defence, but relieved pressure for his team on occasions. Valuable contribution, if not priceless.
Mike Jensen – 5 – Occupied
Found his services required in all parts of the field during the game and popped up all over the field. Was wasteful in possession, which was not helpful.
Tobias Mikkelsen – 5 – Ineffective
The midfielder endured a torrid evening and barely made contact with the ball. When he got the chance to do so, he failed to deliver.
Ole Selnaes – 6.5 – Everywhere
The youngster produced a truly impressive performance despite his team-mates’ shortcomings. Always available for a pass, and invariably able to find a colleague.
Fredrik Midtsjo – 5 – Impotent
After a quiet first period, Fredrik Midtsjo found a little more space after the break and, while his contribution was not decisive, he looked more likely to create a chance until his substitution.
Jonas Svensson – 5.5 – Bystander
Not the only player on his team to disappoint, Svensson showed flashes of his ability, but was expertly marshalled and caused little threat to Lazio’s goal.
Per Andre Helland – 5.5 – Redeployed
Never looked a certain goalscorer during the first half, but was pulled back into a wide right role after the break and, with that move, lost all menace to Etrit Berisha’s goal.
Alexander Soderlund – 5 – Symptomatic
While it might seem unfair to single Soderlund out, to have a lone striker who fails to produce a shot on goal was evidence of Rosenborg’s meekness in this match.
Johan Bjordal – 5.5 – Flexible
Introduced after the injury to Reginiussen and appeared far more adept than his Icelandic team-mate both on and off the ball. It was a wonder he didn’t start.
Anders Konradsen – 5 – Bland
Came on for the tiring Midstjo and was a step down in both energy and performance. A disappointment.
Matthias Vilhjalmsson – 5 – Identikit
In replacing the ineffective Soderlund, Kare Ingebrigsten opted for a striker equally as unimpressive.
