Player Ratings: Sevilla 1-2 Real Madrid – 2022/23
Real Madrid were made to work hard as they fought back from a goal down to win back-to-back games for the first time since April.
A double from Rodrygo ensured that Los Blancos maintained their position as second in the table and move four points clear of city rivals Atletico Madrid.
Thibaut Courtois: 6/10
A very quiet game for the Belgian who was barely tested throughout.
Lucas Vazquez: 6/10
Vazquez tried to get things going in attack but it simply didn’t work for him. The Galician was beaten far too easily in the build-up to Sevilla’s early goal.
Eder Militão: 7/10
Started the game with some sloppiness but improved as the game went on. The Brazilian defended well throughout and looks a lot more comfortable playing alongside Alaba.
David Alaba: 7/10
Just like Militão, Alaba put in a decent shift and wasn’t tested that too often.
Ferland Mendy: 6/10
Still working his way back to full fitness after a couple of months on the side-lines. The Frenchman didn’t provide much at either end of the pitch but put up a good fight against Lamela and Montiel.
Luka Modrić: 7/10
Played a number of wonderful balls into Rodrygo but wasn’t able to control the game for sustained periods of time.
Aurélien Tchouaméni: 7.5/10
Another very good performance from the Frenchman who looks to have regained some of the confidence he lost after the World Cup.
Toni Kroos: 7.5/10
An excellent performance from the German who bossed the midfield and assisted Rodrygo’s second on the counter.
Fede Valverde: 5/10
A mediocre performance from the Uruguayan who’s had a difficult end to the season. Valverde was substituted with an injury.
Rodrygo Goes: 9.5/10
Started as Madrid’s focal point in attack due to Benzema, Asensio and Vini’s absences. Rodrygo scored both of Madrid’s goals and was brilliant throughout. The Brazilian now has 30 goal contributions this season.
Dani Ceballos: 7/10
Started on the left wing in Vinicius’ absence. The Spaniard made some brilliant passes in the attacking third and put in a solid shift. Ceballos is lucky that he didn’t suffer a serious injury after receiving a string of violent fouls.
Eduardo Camavinga: 7/10 – Came on to replace Valverde. The Frenchman was excellent since his introduction.
Alvaro Rodriguez: 6/10 – Came on to replace Ferland Mendy. The Uruguayan came close to scoring with a header.
Nacho Fernandez: N/A – Came on to replace Rodrygo late on.
Antonio Rüdiger: N/A – Came on to replace Vazquez late on.
