Thibaut Courtois: 8.5/10
Made a number of magnificent saves in the first half to keep the score at 0-0. Back to his best after his shocker in the first-leg.
Dani Carvajal: 7/10
The weak link in Real Madrid’s backline. The Spaniard made a few questionable decisions on the ball and didn’t exude any sort of confidence in the first half. Improved after the break.
Eder Militao: 8/10
Another fantastic performance from the Brazilian stalwart. Militao made a goal saving tackle on Salah and showed yet again why he’s one of the best in the world.
Antonio Rüdiger: 8.5/10
Rüdiger’s best performance in a Madrid shirt. The German’s performance was similar to the one he put in at the Bernabéu with Chelsea last season. Impenetrable at the back.
Had Salah in his back pocket for the duration of this tie. The Spaniard had a combined seven tackles and interceptions. Exceptional performance.
Toni Kroos: 8.5/10
Toni Kroos rolled back the years, putting on a clinic in midfield. The German dominated the first half of the match, leaving Liverpool players in the dust. Sensational performance.
Eduardo Camavinga: 7.5/10
Unlucky to not have scored after hitting the crossbar with a thunderbolt of a strike. The Frenchman is improving every week and put in another solid shift in midfield tonight.
Luka Modric: 8/10
Fede Valverde: 7/10
A tireless display from the Uruguayan. Fede Tried his luck from distance on more than one occasion and did a good job helping out Carvajal in defence.
Karim Benzema: 7/10
Not at his best but still decisive as ever. Karim missed a number of good chances in the first half before finally scoring late on in the second half.
Vinicius Jr: 8/10
Caused Trent the world of problems down the left flank and only a stunning save from Alisson stopped the Brazilian from scoring. A nightmare to defend against. Assisted Benzema for the only goal of the game.
Rodrygo Goes: N/A – Came on to replace Benzema.
Dani Ceballos: N/A – Came on to replace Luka Modric.
Aurélien Tchouaméni: N/A – Came on to replace Toni Kroos.
Marco Asensio: N/A – Came on to replace Vinicius.
