2 Giresun (Marseille)

Roma captain Pellegrini was responsible for launching the corner that scored Tammy Abraham’s winning goal against Leicester, and made dangerous crosses throughout the match. Dimitri Payet of Marseille was the best midfielder in the past week, but was forced to retire after being injured 33 minutes after his team’s goalless draw against Feyenoord.

8 Mark Senese (Feynoord)

Marseille, who are struggling to come back from 3-2 behind in the first leg, showed plenty of energy in their preliminary match, with Kamara and Luan Perez blocking Feyenoord’s chances on the counter-attack. But creating big opportunities at the other end was a problem for them.

10 Chris Smalling (Rome)
7 gernott trauner (feyenoord)
5 Gianluca Mancini (Rome)

Smalling topped the playoffs with 12 last week, and although he was less busy at the Olympic Stadium, he continued to excel in that regard. Trainer was very attentive in Feyenoord’s defense and also tried to score a great goal from distance.

3 – Kasper Schmeichel (Leicester)
3 Ofir Marciano (Feenoord)
2 Steve Mandanda (Marseille)
2 Rui Patricio (Rome)

Schmeichel saved superbly against Pellegrino, but had nothing to do with Tammy Abraham’s goal. Rui Patricio shouldn’t have had one save in the first leg last week, but he was busy on Thursday. Ofir Marciano and Steve Mandanda frequently and routinely entered into a goalless draw for their team.
