Player Ratings: Mallorca 1-0 Real Madrid – 2022/23
A Nacho own goal was enough for Mallorca to grab a hard-fought 1-0 win over Real Madrid on Sunday.
Following their third defeat in LaLiga this season, Los Blancos remain second, five points behind leaders Barcelona, who could extend their lead to eight points if they defeat Sevilla at the Camp Nou on Sunday night.
Problems continued to mount up for Real Madrid just two weeks before they face Liverpool in the Champions League. Another defeat in the league as well as Thibaut Courtois missing the game after injuring his abductor muscle in the warm-up. Things continue to go from bad to worse for Ancelotti’s men.
Andriy Lunin: 6/10
Last minute replacement for Courtois who picked up an injury in the warmup. Not at fault for the goal.
Dani Carvajal: 3/10
Back in the lineup after recovering from injury. The Spaniard put in another poor performance and is no longer the reliable player we’ve seen over the last few seasons.
Unfortunate to score the own goal that cost his team the game. The Spaniard tried to clear the ball only for it to bounce off the back of his head and beyond Lunin.
Antonio Rüdiger: 6/10
Solid performance in defence and a threat in attack. The German came close to scoring late on but his header was just off target.
Eduardo Camavinga: 7/10
Despite not being a defender, Camavinga was Real Madrid’s best player out of the back four.
Fede Valverde: 2/10
Another shocker from Valverde who’s completely out of form at the moment. The Uruguayan had no impact on the game and was hauled off on the hour mark.
Aurélien Tchouaméni: 6/10
Back in the starting lineup after more than a month on the sidelines. Tchouaméni was the best of a bad bunch in the middle of the park.
Dani Ceballos: 5/10
Another game as a starter but this time Dani was overshadowed in midfield.
Marco Asensio: 2/10
Missed the penalty which was also Real Madrid’s only shot on target throughout the ninety minutes. Very poor from Real Madrid’s most senior attacker on the pitch.
Rodrygo Goes: 4/10
Offered virtually nothing going forward.
Vinicius Jr: 6/10
Once again the only attacker that attempted to make a difference in attack. The Brazilian was fouled 10 times, a record number of fouls in a league game this season across the top-five leagues. Another game where Vini was constantly provoked by the opposition players and fans.
Luka Modric: 5/10 – Came on to replace Valverde.
Toni Kroos: 5/10 – Came on to replace Tchouaméni.
Mariano Diaz: 5/10 – Came on to replace Asensio.
David Alaba: 5/10 – Came on to replace Ceballos.
