Player of the Match – Luis Muriel
The Colombian No.9 only played the first half, yet was comfortably the best player on the pitch. Not only scoring two goals, but his direct running with the ball also created problems for the opposition.
He has now hit 18 goals for the season in Serie A and is on target for the best return of his career.
