Player ratings:

Starting XI:

Thibaut Courtois: 7/10

Made a great reflex save in the second half but other than that it was a very quiet game for the Belgian.

Lucas Vazquez: 8/10

Very good performance from the Galician who assisted Asensio’s winner. Vazquez was constantly up and down the right flank and was impressive in attack.

Eder Militao: 7/10

Solid performance from Militao who didn’t put a foot wrong and was barely challenged throughout.

Nacho: 7/10

Just like Militao, Nacho was solid throughout the ninety minutes.

Ferland Mendy: 7/10

The Frenchman’s first start in nearly two months. Great to finally see him back.

Dani Ceballos: 7/10

Back in the lineup after missing the last two games through injury. The Spaniard didn’t have much impact on the game but put in a solid shift.

Aurélien Tchouaméni: 8/10

Tchouaméni’s best performance in months. The Frenchman was excellent on and off the ball showing exactly why Madrid spent so much on him.

Eduardo Camavinga: 7/10

Started in midfield and put in a solid shift before he picked up a worrying knock late on. Ancelotti confirmed after the game that he should be fine, let’s hope that’s the case because he will be needed against City.

Fede Valverde: 6/10

Started on the right wing in Rodrygo’s absence. The Uruguayan had very little impact on the game and was replaced by Modric on the hour mark.

Marco Asensio: 8/10

Scored Madrid’s winner with a brilliant strike from outside the box. The Spaniard is having his best season in-front of goal, registering 20 goal contributions so far this season.

Eden Hazard: 6/10

Started his first game in LaLiga since September 2022. The Belgian was poor in the first half but improved somewhat after the break.

Substitutions:

Toni Kroos: 7.5/10 Came on to replace Mendy after the break. The German was brilliant since coming on and completely changed the game for Madrid.

Luka Modric: 7/10 Came on to replace Valverde on the hour mark. The Croatian’s introduction helped Real Madrid create more chances.

Vinícius Jr: 7/10 Came on to replace Hazard. The Brazilian scored but it was ruled out for offside.

Mariano Diaz: 6/10 Came on to replace Ceballos. The striker assisted Vinicius for Madrid’s second but his delayed pass meant it was chalked off for offside.

Alvaro Odriozola: N/A Came on to replace Camavinga late on.
