Player Ratings: Barcelona 2-1 Real Madrid – 2022/23

Real Madrid’s disappointing LaLiga season goes from bad to worse as Barcelona extend their lead atop of the LaLiga table to 12 points with just 12 games remaining.

The Champions League and Copa del Rey are now the only chance for Real Madrid to win a trophy and salvage something out of this poor season.

Player ratings:

Starting XI:

Thibaut Courtois: 8/10

The only reason Real Madrid didn’t lose tonight’s game by a four or five goal margin. The Belgian pulled off some stunning saves.

Dani Carvajal: 3/10

No words. The level of Real Madrid’s full-backs this season has been truly disastrous. Another shocker from Dani.

Eder Militao: 7/10

Despite Real Madrid’s poor defensive performance, Militao put in a solid shift. Barcelona created most if not all of their danger down the flanks. The Brazilian blocked four shots, made five clearances, and four combined tackles and interceptions.

Antonio Rüdiger: 7/10

Put in a solid shift up against Lewandowski. The Barca striker had little to no joy against Rüdiger.

Nacho: 6/10

Started at left-back once again. The Spaniard put in a very good shift against Raphinha before being substituted to avoid a second yellow.

Luka Modric: 6/10

Luka Modric had a few bright moments in the game and made some great passes in the second half but struggled to match Barcelona’s energy in midfield.

Eduardo Camavinga: 6/10

A decent performance from Camavinga. The Frenchman put in a good shift but couldn’t make much of an impact on the game.

Toni Kroos: 5/10

Despite having a 100% passing accuracy, Toni Kroos was relatively poor tonight. The German had no material impact on the game and often slowed the game down a lot more than necessary.

Fede Valverde: 4/10

A shocker from Fede. The Uruguayan was incredibly poor tonight and shouldn’t have remained on the pitch for as long as he did. Way below standard.

Karim Benzema: 3/10

Another very poor performance for the Frenchman who just doesn’t look fit enough. Karim struggled all game and continues to be played because of the team’s severe lack of planning in transfer windows.

Vinicius Jr: 6/10

The only player that constantly tries in attack, even if it doesn’t always pay off. Vinicius didn’t have the greatest of games but he can’t be expected to do everything in attack. The Brazilian’s deflected shot resulted in Madrid’s opener.


Rodrygo Goes: 6/10 Came on to replace Toni Kroos. The Brazilian missed a great chance after coming on.

Ferland Mendy: 4/10 Came on to replace Nacho. The Frenchman was nowhere to be found during Barca’s late goal.

Dani Ceballos: 5/10 Came on to replace Luka Modric. The Spaniard was very lively after coming on.

Aurélien Tchouaméni: 5/10 Came on to replace Camavinga.

Marco Asensio: 7/10 Came on to replace Valverde. The Spaniard scored a goal which was ruled out for offside and was very lively in attack.
