1. KEYLOR NAVAS 4.0
A brilliant piece of goalkeeping to deny Gameiro from the spot. Was consistently up to the task, with arguably his best save coming in the final five minutes to somehow deny Gameiro from point-blank range.
23. DANILO 3.0
Got forward with regularity down the right flank and had some exellent interplay with Bale, while assisting Madrid’s second goal with a superb cross.
6. NACHO FERNANDEZ 3.5
Lacked pace to keep up with Gameiro, but he usually made up for it with some strong positional play.
2. RAPHAEL VARANE 3.0
Clumsily dragged down Rami in the area to concede a penalty, but Navas bailed him out. Otherwise it was usually Varane who did the bailing out, saving Madrid a couple of times with his pace.
12. MARCELO 3.0
Was practically a second winger, playing such an advanced role on the left. Was a menace in attack, providin some exellent service in the final third.
19. LUKA MODRIC 3.0
So sound in possession, with the bulk of Madrid’s play working through him in midfield. The primary distributor of the ball thanks to his exellent vision.
14. CASEMIRO 3.5
Offered good support for the back line and helped to limit Iborra’s time and space on the ball in midfield in what was quite the intelligent performance.
8. TONI KROOS 3.0
Risp, sharp passes in midfield was the name of his game. Did nothing flashy but performed admirably with what was asked of him.
11. GARETH BALE 4.0
Gave Sevilla nightmares early on, setting up the opener, striking the post with a shot from outside the area and seeing a good goal disallowed for offside all in the first 20 minutes. Finally got his goal in the second half, becoming the top British scorer in La Liga history.
9. KARIM BENZEMA 4.0
Opened the scoring with nothing short of a world class finish, sending a screamer into the top corner with a first-time shot after Bale picked him out with a cross. So strong on the ball and was a constant nuisance inside the area, assisting Bale’s goal with a nicely improvised chip pass.
7. CRISTIANO RONALDO 3.5
Kept on the fringes in the first half, then blazed a penalty ofer the bar in the second. He quickly atoned for the error, however, getting behind Rami to double Madrid’s lead just after the hour mark.
20. JESE RODRIGUEZ 3.0
Scored off the bench, though his calm finish should have been called back for offside.
10. JAMES RODRIGUEZ
Had little time to try and make an impact.
Late sub with the game out of reach.
