Player of the Match – Ciro Immobile
The Italian had a quiet evening overall, struggling to carve out chances against a stubborn Parma defence. He ended the game showing why he is such a clinical goalscorer taking advantage of the one real opportunity afforded to him this evening but was enough to seal the win for his team and ultimately that is what he is judged on.
