Player Ratings: Getafe 0-2 Real Madrid – 2023/24

Real Madrid have gone two points clear at the top of LaLiga after two goals from Joselu guided Ancelotti’s men to a 2-0 win over Getafe on Thursday.

Los Blancos could’ve and should’ve scored more goals but will undoubtedly be happy with their performance as they prepare to face Atletico Madrid and Girona over the next week.

The win propels Madrid back to the top of the LaLiga standings, with a two-point lead over Girona.

Player ratings:

Starting XI:

Andriy Lunin: 6.5/10

Another start for the Ukrainian. Lunin had very little to do throughout the ninety minutes.

Lucas Vazquez: 7.5/10

A very good performance from the Galician who was solid defensively and a threat in attack. Vazquez assisted Joselu’s opener with a brilliant cross.

Antonio Rüdiger: 6/10

Rüdiger was solid at the back before he picked up a knock to his thigh just before the break. Replaced at half time.

Nacho Fernandez: 6.5/10

A decent shift from the Spaniard who wasn’t really challenged at the back.

Ferland Mendy: 6.5/10

Ferland Mendy put in a good shift for his team and rarely poot a foot wrong.

Fede Valverde: 7/10

Valverde looked a lot sharper tonight after being rested for the last game. The Uruguayan put in the hard yards but didn’t quite have his shooting boots on.

Aurélien Tchouaméni: 8/10

An excellent performance from the Frenchman who played in midfield and as a centre-back after Rüdiger was brought off due to injury. The Frenchman won 11 duals, 100% of his tackles and recovered possession nine times.

Luka Modric: 7/10

After not featuring in the last game, Modric started tonight and looked sharp and fresh. The Croatian was excellent on the ball and created a number of excellent chances.

Jude Bellingham: 7/10

Jude played a little deeper than usual tonight. The Englishman didn’t score or assist but still had an impact in midfield, completing 93% of his passes and winning five duels.

Joselu: 9/10

A brilliant performance from the Spaniard. Joselu bagged a brace and should’ve had a hat-trick but unselfishly chose to square the ball to Vinicius who couldn’t finish. Excellent.

Vinicius Jr: 6.5/10

Vinícius was very active in attack and assisted Joselu’s second with a wonderful through ball. The Brazilian will however be disappointed with the amount of chances he missed. Should’ve scored at least two goals.

Substitutions:

Eduardo Camavinga: 6/10 Came on to replace the injured Rüdiger.

Rodrygo Goes: 6/10 Came on to replace Vinícius Junior.

Dani Carvajal: N/A Came on to replace Jude Bellingham late on.

Brahim Diaz: N/A Came on to replace Joselu late on.
