The tie felt like something of a foregone conclusion after Spurs’ 4-1 win in the first leg last week but the match was significant for the contribution of Dele Alli, who opened the scoring with a brilliant bicycle kick and finished with two assists.
Dan Kilpatrick was at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to run the rule over the home players...
Joe Hart 7
As vocal as always, barking orders at his back four. Didn’t have a serious save to make.
Matt Doherty 7
Hesitant and sloppy when he got in good positions but got the assist for Dele’s super strike with a one-two, which should boost his confidence.
Toby Alderweireld 7
Little to do but solid when called upon. Booked for dissent with Spurs cruising at 3-0.
Eric Dier 6
Very lucky to escape being penalised after bringing down Cheikhou Dieng as the last man moments before Vinicius’ first goal. A bit rash at times.
Ben Davies 7
Solid on his 50th European appearance for the club and got forward well. Involved in the moves for two of the second-half goals.
Harry Winks 8
Took a while to get up to speed in the first half but grew into the game and covered plenty of ground. Won possession in the build-up to Bale’s goal. Shooting was wayward.
Moussa Sissoko 6
Kept it simple and did his job in in the midfield. Nearly bulldozed his way to goal before being replaced late on.
Steven Bergwijn 7
Looked desperate for goal, occasionally to the detriment of the team. Did test the goalkeeper in the first half but too often lost possession.
Dele Alli 9
His stunning overhead kick was a reminder of his quality and also finished with assists for Vinicius and Bale. Decisive. A possible turning point?
Erik Lamela 7
Loves running the show against lesser opponents and looked on it. Unlucky not to score from a succession of shots and should have had an assist when Vinicius’ effort was cleared off the line.
Carlos Vinicius 8
He’s no Harry Kane, obviously, but has a canny knack for getting goals in this competition. Should have scored after rounding the goalkeeper in the first half but made amends with a back-post header to double Spurs’ lead and a fine curling finish.
Gareth Bale (Lamela 68’) 8
Continued his upturn with a superb goal just five minutes after coming on, caressing Dele’s pass into the top corner. Surely a certain starter against Burnley here on Sunday.
Lucas Moura (Bergwijn 68’) 7
Ran around a lot.
Marcel Lavinier (Doherty 74’) 6
The 20-year-old former Chelsea academy player looked a little nervous on his debut.
Nile John (Sissoko 80’) 6
17-year-old made his debut in the heart of midfield and had a couple of nice touches.
Dane Scarlett (Dele 80’) 8
Took his chance by bagging an assist by nicking the ball from a defender for Vinicius’ second goal and forced a save from the goalkeeper.
Subs not used: Lloris, Tanganga, Reguilon, Markanday, Ndombele, Kane, Son.
