Real Madrid Player Ratings: Former Manchester United Star Flops In Madrid Derby

Keylor Navas: 9

Without this man, Real Madrid would have lost this match. It really is that simple. The Costa Rican stopper did everything he could to try and deny Atléti opening the scoring but was let down by his teammates in the end. He even saved a penalty from Griezemann.

Dani Carvajal: 7

Dani Carvajal was unfortunate to be subbed off due to an injury as he was playing excellently until then and assited Karim Benzema to score Real’s only goal.

Raphael Varane: 6.5

Reasonable display from the young Frenchman. He kept his compatriot Griezmann in check for the most part.

Sergio Ramos: 4.5

Ridiculous combination of reckless tackling and comical errors to present Atléti with a penalty.

Marcelo: 5

There was piercing runs down the left hand side from the Brazilian and he was constantly troubled with Atletico Madrid’s midfielders. His positioning still needs to be improved.

Casemiro: 9

My choice for the Man of the Match. He made so many interceptions and tackles today that helped stop Atléti’s forwards from creating danger. Even his passing was also Xabi Alonso-eqsue.

Toni Kroos: 5

He won few tackles and contributed little in attack, most of his passes were either backwards or square. Normally he leads in passes as he dictates the tempo. Today, 4 Real Madrid players made more passes than him.

Luka Modric: 8

Modric put in a decent performance as he dribbled with the ball better than any other player in the line-up. He made several successful dribbles and worked hard throughout the match both offensively and defensively.


Isco: 5

His creativity was lacking in attack today. He is a treat to our eyes when he dribbles. But he needs to improve his shooting and passing abilities.

Cristiano Ronaldo: 1

Pathetic would be an understatement to describe Ronaldo’s performance.

Karim Benzema: 6 

Did well to take the lead for Madrid with a clinical header, indicative of his recent form but then proceeded to contribute little thereafter.
