Player Ratings: Real Madrid 2-0 Celta Vigo – 2022/23
Real Madrid eased to a 2-0 win against Celta Vigo at the Bernabéu on Saturday thanks to goals from Marco Asensio and Eder Militao.
The team continued their impressive form with their sixth clean sheet in seven games as they move five points clear of city rivals Atlético Madrid and eight behind league leaders Barcelona.
Thibaut Courtois: 7/10
Made a brilliant save to deny Aspas in the second half but other than that it was a quiet night for the Belgian.
Solid shift from Nacho who put in a number of decent crosses down the flanks.
Eder Militao: 8/10
Scored his fifth goal in LaLiga this season with an incredible header. Elite player.
Antonio Rüdiger: 7/10
Made a number of good tackles when he needed to. Rarely tested in defence.
Eduardo Camavinga: 9.5/10
A splendid performance from Camavinga who had the Bernabéu faithful chanting his name. The Frenchman chased every loose ball and caused Celta’s players all sorts of headaches with his incessant pressing and tackling. A generational talent.
Fede Valverde: 7/10
The quietest out of Madrid’s midfield three. Fede did what he needed to without ever getting out of first gear.
Aurélien Tchouaméni: 7/10
Tchouaméni made a few good tackles and put in a decent shift, particularly in the second half. The Frenchman is slowly getting back to where he was before the World Cup.
Dani Ceballos: 8/10
Real Madrid’s best player in midfield. The Spaniard was excellent both on and off the ball as he continues to fight for a contract extension.
Marco Asensio: 9.5/10
Excellent performance from Asensio who continues to impress as he fights to extend his stay at Real Madrid beyond this season. The Spaniard opened the scoring for Real Madrid before assisting Militao’s goal with a well taken corner. Brilliant.
Karim Benzema: 6/10
Struggled to get into the game and didn’t have many chances to score. A night to forget for the Frenchman.
Vinícius Jr: 7/10
Assisted Asensio’s opener with a brilliant pass after being released by Ceballos down the left. The Brazilian caused Celta a lot of problems down the left with his constant attacks.
Lucas Vazquez: 6/10 – Came on to replace Asensio.
Luka Modric: N/A – Came on to replace Ceballos late on.
Rodrygo Goes: N/A – Came on to replace Vinicius late on.
