Player Ratings: Real Madrid 2-0 Granada – 2023/24

Real Madrid cruised to a comfortable 2-0 win against Granada at the Bernabéu on Saturday thanks to goals from Brahim Diaz and Rodrygo Goes.

Carlo Ancelotti’s men regained their position as league leaders after Girona’s late 2-1 comeback win against Valencia earlier on Saturday.

Player ratings:

Starting XI:

Andriy Lunin: 7/10

A spectator throughout. Granada didn’t manage a single shot on target.

Dani Carvajal: 7/10

With Granada camped in their own half, Carvajal took full advantage of that and forayed forward regularly. Replaced by Vazquez after the interval.

Antonio Rüdiger: 7.5/10

Another top display from the German who was rock solid throughout. Rüdiger has been perfect this season.

David Alaba: 7/10

A very easy outing for the Austrian who didn’t really leave first gear.

Ferland Mendy: 7/10

Mendy had very little defending to do and thus played higher up the pitch. The Frenchman was involved in Real Madrid’s second goal of the evening.

Fede Valverde: 7/10

Another dominant performance from the Uruguayan who was a key player in midfield once again. Came close to scoring after some brilliant play from Bellingham.

Toni Kroos: 8.5/10

Assisted Brahim’s opener with a sensationally weighted pass . The German continues to be Madrid’s engine in the middle of the park.

Jude Bellingham: 8/10

Despite not scoring, Bellingham never stopped having a go and constantly caused issues for Granada. The Englishman played a little deeper this time but still managed to stamp his authority on proceedings.

Brahim Diaz: 9/10

Opened the scoring for Real Madrid with a well-taken finish after being found with a majestic pass by Toni Kroos. The Spaniard also played a big role in Madrid’s second goal and was a constant threat throughout.

Rodrygo Goes: 8/10

Another very good performance from the Brazilian who just can’t stop scoring at the moment. Rodrygo has scored seven goals and registered four assists in his last five games. Unstoppable.

Joselu: 6/10

Very quiet game from the Spaniard who had little to no impact on the game. Replaced by Ceballos with 20 minutes to go.

Substitutions:

Lucas Vazquez: 6/10 – Came on to replace Dani Carvajal for the second half.

Dani Ceballos: 6/10 – Came on to replace Joselu.

Gonzalo Garcia: N/A – Came on to replace Rodrygo late on.
