How Spurs’ stars got on against tricky Portuguese giants.
Spurs have given themselves a mountain to climb for next week’s clash in Lisbon as a goals from Rodrigo and Luisao handed Benfica a huge advantage.
A Christian Eriksen free kick was not enough to stop the Eagles from marching on and Tim Sherwood’s job will surely be hanging by a thread now.
Hugo Lloris – 6
A little unorthodox at times, but was largely powerless to stop Benfica’s goals.
Kyle Walker – 5
Offered very little going forward, hobbled off towards the end.
Jan Vertonghen – 5
Had his hands full with Rodrigo, got himself booked and will now miss the second leg.
Younes Kaboul – 4
Was at fault for the second goal and was too immobile to keep up with the runs of Nicolas Gaitan.
Kyle Naughton – 4
