Barcelona player ratings vs Tottenham Hotspur

Barcelona played out a 1-1 draw against Tottenham Hotspur in their final group stage game of this season’s Champions League. The Catalan giants featured a weakened team against Spurs after already being assured of their last-16 spot with the top position guaranteed.

Player Ratings:

Jasper Cillessen: The Dutch footballer was a busy man between the sticks and he made three crucial saves including one where he denied Heung-min Son a goal off the line – 8/10

Nelson Semedo: The right-back enjoyed drifting forward with the pace of Dembele to assist him and the duo caused problems for the visitors during the first half in particular – 7/10

Clement Lenglet: Lenglet had a relatively good first period but struggled to replicate the showing after the break. He allowed Kane a free sight of goal but a slight nudge made the striker to shoot way over the bar.

Thomas Vermaelen: The former Arsenal man made a rare appearance after his injury comeback but his performance was pretty uncertain with his lack of pace costing the team eventually – 6/10

Juan Miranda: The youngster struggled to contain the threat of Sone at times on his European debut but looked much comfortable on the opposite side of the field where he put Kyle Walker-Peters under pressure – 6/10

Arthur: The midfielder had a sublime performance at the Wembley earlier in the season but he was only slightly influential this time around with not much forward movement – 6/10

Carles Alena: The La Masia graduate sparkled on his Champions League debut with his sleek passing was reminiscent of Cesc Fabregas during his heydays with Barcelona – 7/10

Ivan Rakitic: Rakitic had a rather forgettable game where he could get the better of the Spurs midfield on certain occasions. He was replaced by Busquets at the half-time whistle – 5.5/10

Ousmane Dembele: The Frenchman has been making the wrong news for his questionable time-keeping but he made amends on the pitch with a stunning solo effort early on – 7/10

Munir El Haddadi: A disappointing showing from the Spaniard, who was pretty much invisible from the field, barring the sole effort to find the net which was ultimately deemed offside – 4/10

Philippe Coutinho: The ex-Liverpool man was a lively influence and had two shots hit the woodwork. He should have been clean through with another run but Walker-Peters got a block in – 7/10
