Posted on 21 March 2014  - 13:05

Nacer Chadli is the runaway winner of our fans' Man of the Match vote for Thursday night's Europa League Round of 16, second leg against Benfica.

Nacer drives home his first goal to make it 1-1 on the nightLads celebrate

The Belgian midfielder's quickfire double paved the way to a grandstand finish at the Estadio da Luz, as we recovered from a 1-0 deficit on the night and 4-1 on aggregate to pull within one goal of Benfica.

We had chances after as well - most notably Gylfi Sigurdsson's 91st minute header saved by Jan Oblak - before Lima's penalty in the 94th minute put the issue beyond doubt, 2-2 on the night, 5-3 on aggregate.

Nacer claimed 70 per cent of votes across the Man of the Match polls on Facebook, @SpursOfficial on Twitter and our Match Centre here on tottenhamhotspur.com.

Nacer Chadli - 70%
