Player of the Match – Amir Rrahmani
The centre-back was the match-winner on the night, having taken care of his defensive duties before going on to score at the other end. Dusan Vlahovic was kept under control nicely by both Rrahmani and Kalidou Koulibaly, who were never overrun even during La Viola’s dominant spell in the first half.
