1. KEYLOR NAVAS 3.0
Made a couple of good saves in wet conditions, and was needed to hold onto some difficult crosses in the rain.

23. DANILO 2.5
Struggled throughout the first half, with Isma Lopez causing him all kinds of problems, but was better after the break.

Picked up a knock in the first half, but otherwise defended with physicality and helped drag Real Madrid over the line.

Struck the crossbar with an audacious over-head kick effort before the break, and made some good clearances.

Whipped in a lovely cross for Ronaldo’s second of the afternoon, but was let off the hook after conceding a penalty.

Firm in the tackle when needed, but spread play well, ensuring that the hosts were measured with their approach play.

Won an early penalty for the home side, and went on to go close with two further efforts, but couldn’t find the net.
