Real Madrid players performance in El Clásico


Los Blancos suffered the second defeat (2-3) in La Liga in El Clásico against FC Barcelona because of a late goal scored by Leo Messi. Have a look here at the performance of the Real Madrid players in a very important game that could have decided La Liga title.

Keylor Navas (9): The Costa Rican goalkeeper has been very criticized in the last weeks, but he was one of the best of the team. He conceded the first goal in the first shot on target and he could have saved it, but then he shone with great saves to Piqué or Luis Suárez.

Marcelo (9): Perhaps, the best player of Real Madrid. His only mistake was not to interrupt Sergi Roberto run in the third goal. The counter attack could have finished there and the game with it. He gave the assist to James and almost put the cross in the opening goal of the game. Also he will be remember for the clash with Leo Messi, who ended up with the Argentinian star bleeding.

Daniel Carvajal (8): Again, he showed a great performance both attacking and defending. The right back suffered with Jordi Alba, but he was quite comfortable with Paco Alcácer. Messi dribbled him in the first goal conceded by Los Blancos.

Nacho (7): He didn’t highlight but he didn’t commit any mistakes. Zidane can trust Nacho because he’s not going to make big errors.

Sergio Ramos (3): The captain hit the bar in the opening goal of the team but he made a huge mistake with his tackle with Leo Messi. Perhaps it’s not red card, but you cannot risk it in this important game.

Casemiro (3): His yellow card in the 20th minute of the game was crucial for the clash. The Brazilian suffered a lot with Messi and could have been sent off in the first half. It wasn’t his best game.

Modric (5): The Croatian midfielder is not at his best and Rakitic was better than him. He arrived late in the first goal scored by Leo Messi and he was unable to control the game.

Kroos (6): Far from being decisive in the game. He didn’t cover Rakitic properly in the second goal and he could score a good goal from outside the box but Ter Stegen prevented it.

Bale (3): The Welshman is being very unlucky with the injuries and he shouldn’t have played the game. Perhaps it’s not his fault, but he wasn’t able to show his potential in the clash.

Benzema (5): Usually he shows a great level in El Clásico but this time he didn’t do it. His best chance arrived in the second half with a header, but Ter Stegen saved it with the foot. His performance should improve in the future.

Cristiano Ronaldo (6): He tried several times and lead the team in the attacking line, but he was unlucky. Ter Stegen save a good shot and he missed a clear chance after an assist from Asensio.

Marco Asensio (8): Again he was the best player in the attacking line. The Spaniard is showing that he is able to play the best games of the season with personality. A shame that he couldn’t assist properly to Cristiano Ronaldo in a great counter attack.

Mateo Kovacic (5): He entered in the pitch for Casemiro and he couldn’t highlight in this position. It’s a tricky position for him, especially if Leo Messi is around.

James Rodríguez (7): He came in at the end of the game and he scored the draw. The Colombian playmaker had a lot of importance in the match in the few minutes he played. We hope he continues like that.
