Player Ratings: Real Madrid 4-1 Barcelona – Spanish Super Cup 2022/23
A first half hat-trick from Vinicius Junior helped Real Madrid crush Barcelona with a 4-1 win in the Supercopa final on Sunday.
Vinícius was at his clinical best as he bagged three goals, before Rodrygo Goes capped off the scoring with a well-taken finish in the second half.
Real Madrid were worthy winners and ended the game pinging the ball around with ease in what was one of Los Blancos’ most dominant Clasico performances in years.
Andriy Lunin: 7.5/10
Started ahead of Kepa after the Spaniard’s blunders against Atletico. Lunin made a number of excellent saves against Barcelona as he looks to cement his position as a starter in Courtois’ absence.
Dani Carvajal: 7.5/10
Carvajal has been immense this season and tonight was no different. The Spaniard nullified the pace of Balde and was a rock at the back.
Antonio Rüdiger: 7/10
Rüdiger hardly put a foot wrong and was reliable as ever at the back for Real Madrid. The best defender in the world at the moment.
Both Rüdiger and Nacho had a relatively quiet game at the back but were always alert to any danger.
Ferland Mendy: 7/10
Worked hard and completely nullified Ferran Torres who had no impact on the game. Solid dfensively.
Fede Valverde: 8/10
Another excellent display from the Uruguayan who put in the hard yards and kept Gundogan and De Jong quiet. Very dominant.
Aurélien Tchouaméni: 8/10
Tchouaméni put in an excellent shift. The Frenchman kept Pedri quiet and provided the necessary cover his defenders needed.
Toni Kroos: 8/10
A very dominant performance from the German who despite getting booed, pinged the ball around with ease. Kroos had a 96% pass accuracy and showed his class once again.
Jude Bellingham: 8/10
Assisted Vinicius’ opener with a sensational through ball. The Englishman put in a brilliant shift and was key to Madrid’s dominance.
Rodrygo Goes: 8/10
Rodrygo assisted Vinicius’ second goal before scoring Real Madrid’s fourth. A great performance from Rodrygo who hurt Barça’s defence with his pace and trickery.
Vinicius Jr: 10/10
What a performance! Vinicius ran Barcelona ragged and gave Araujo a night to forget with a sensational hat-trick. One of the best if not his best career performance.
Brahim Diaz: 7/10 – Came on to replace Rodrygo. The Spaniard should’ve scored after being presented with some brilliant goalscoring opportunities.
Luka Modric: N/A – Came on to replace Vinicius late on.
Eduardo Camavinga: N/A – Came on to replace Toni Kroos late on.
Joselu: N/A – Came on to replace Jude Bellingham late on.
Dani Ceballos: N/A – Came on to Valverde late on.
