Up next, Napoli in the Champions League.
Kepa Arrizabalaga: 7/10
Kepa looked a little shaky at the start of the game but quickly settled in. The Spaniard made a brilliant save to deny Girona early on in the second half.
Dani Carvajal: 7/10
Back in the starting line-up after missing the last two games through injury. The Spaniard was solid as has been the case all season.
Antonio Rüdiger: 7/10
Excellent performance from the German who was rock solid at the back.
Nacho Fernandez: 5/10
Just like Rüdiger, Nacho was solid and barely put a foot wrong throughout. That was until he completely lost the plot and earned a red card in stoppage time for a crazy tackle.
Eduardo Camavinga: 7.5/10
Started at left-back for the first time this season. The Frenchman put in an excellent shift and will give both Mendy and Fran Garcia a few things to worry about.
Fede Valverde: 7/10
Valverde never stops running and that was the case again today. The Uruguayan was full of legs and put in a shift in the middle of the park.
Aurélien Tchouaméni: 9/10
Another excellent game from the Frenchman who was a rock in the middle of the park. Tchouaméni scored his first goal for Real Madrid with a brilliant bullet header from a Toni Kroos corner. World Class.
Toni Kroos: 7.5/10
Assisted Tchouaméni for Madrid’s second with a great cross from an in swinging corner. The German’s passing was as reliable as ever and he was more defensively solid than in prior games.
Jude Bellingham: 9/10
Back in the starting line-up after being rested in midweek. The Englishman scored his sixth goal in seven LaLiga games this season and assisted Joselu’s opener with a sensational trivela pass. Incredible player.
Scored Madrid’s opener after being found by a brilliant trivela assist from Bellingham. The Spaniard then assisted Bellingham for Madrid’s third goal.
Vinicius Jr: 6/10
Quiet game from the Brazilian who didn’t really get going.
Rodrygo Goes: 6/10 – Came on to replace Vinicius. The Brazilian didn’t see much of the ball during his time on the pitch.
Dani Ceballos: 6/10 – Came on to replace Bellingham as Ancelotti looked towards Tuesday’s match against Napoli.
Brahim Diaz: N/A – Came on to replace Valverde late on.
Lucas Vazquez: N/A – Came on to replace Joselu late on.
