Player Ratings: Olympiacos 4-2 Malmo

Sports Mole rates the players that took part in Olympiacos's 4-2 win against Malmo in Tuesday's Champions League Group A clash.

Olympiacos secured a 4-2 win against Malmo in a pulsating Champions League clash tonight at the Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium.

David Fuster opened the scoring for the hosts with a header in the 22nd minute, but Simon Kroon capped off a great counter-attacking move to pull the Swedish champions level just before the hour.

Michel's charges were back in front just four minutes later with a stunning Alejandro Dominguez half-volley, but again, Malmo found themselves level with a carbon copy of their first goal, this time scored by Markus Rosenberg.

The Greek champions managed to secure the win with two goals in the last 10 minutes, courtesy of Kostas Mitroglou and Ibrahim Afellay.

However, Olympiacos had to make do with a place in the Europa League following Juventus's goalless draw with Atletico Madrid in Turin, which consigned them to third place in Group A.

Here, Sports Mole rates all of the players that took part in tonight's game.



OLYMPIACOS

Goal

Roberto Jimenez: Was untroubled for most of the night, but when it came to Malmo's goals, he was not at fault. (6/10)

Defence

Arthur Masuaku: Was a constant menace down the left flank, but with regards to defensive duties, was found lacking at times. (6/10)

Eric Abidal: A solid game, but was lucky not to concede a penalty when the ball struck his arm in the box just before half time. (6/10)

Botia: Steady enough at the back and effective coming forward, twice coming close with headers. (6/10)

Omar El Abdellaoui: Had a great display coming forward down the right flank as his side constantly threatened through that channel. (7/10)

Midfield

Pajtim Kassami: A constant menace in attack, rewarded with two assists for the first and last goals of the match. (7/10)

David Fuster: Opened the scoring with a brave header that resulted in his getting hurt in the process, but was intermittent thereafter. (6/10)

Giannis Maniatis: A steady game for the Greek international, who kept things ticking over but didn't make a huge impact. (6/10)

Delvin Ndinga: Had a relatively quiet game, except for his poor backwards header in his box which nearly gifted the opposition a goal. (5/10)

Attack

Alejandro Dominguez: Was the standout player of the first half, a constant danger throughout and scored the goal of the evening from a half-volley. (8/10)

Kostas Mitroglou: Plenty of intent but wasn't able to finish many of the chances presented to him, though he did get on the scoresheet late on. (6/10)

Substitutes

Ibrahim Afellay: Added extra spark to an already lively attack and killed off the game with a well-taken goal at the end of the match. (7/10)



MALMO

Goal

Robin Olsen: Pulled off some good saves but was let down by his defence at times as the hosts ran in four goals. (6/10)

Defence

Filip Helander: Was found lacking at times against a rampaging Olympiacos attack. (5/10)

Anton Tinnerholm: Like the rest of the defence, had a tough night, but his cross for Rosenberg's goal was impressive. (6/10)

Ricardinho: Was dangerous in the final third thanks to his long throws, but failed to produce the goods at the back. (6/10)

Pa Konate: The 20-year-old deputised for the suspended Erik Johansson, and was often out of his depth. (5/10)

Midfield

Markus Halsti: Struggled to match the visitors' cutting edge in attack, another to have a difficult evening. (5/10)

Emil Forsberg: Provided a great assist for Malmo's first goal and got better as the game went on. (6/10)

Enoch Kofi Adu: Could not complain about his sending-off, which capped off a poor display. (5/10)

Magnus Eriksson: Often gave possession away and had very little impact. (5/10)

Attack

Isaac Thelin: Came close with an overhead kick, but was often starved of ammunition. (6/10)

Markus Rosenberg: Did well to finish off a great counter-attacking move and secure a goal, but was otherwise quiet. (6/10)

Substitutes

Simon Thern: Largely anonymous. (5/10)

Simon Kroon: Scored with his first touch after just two minutes of coming on as a substitute. (7/10)
