Real Madrid (4-2) Kashima Antlers – Player Ratings

Loading...

1. KEYLOR NAVAS 3.0
Positioning wasn’t great for either of the Kashima goals, especially the second which crept just inderneath him. Nearly knocked out Ramos after a commanding headed clearance.

2. DANIEL CARVAJAL 3.0
Could have contributed more going forward as Vazquez could have been helped by some runs on the overlap. Defended solidly, though.

5. RAPHAEL VARANE 3.0
Caught off-balance for the first conceded goal which meant his subsequent attempted tackle was very weak. Did take the pressure off Madrid with a few ventures forward out of defence.

4. SERGIO RAMOS 3.0
Somehow managed to escape a second yellow despite completely taking out Kanazaki whilst already booked. Rash in some challenges, but did command the defence well.

12. MARCELO 3.0
Typically got up and down the left wing ease and provided much needed width near the touchline. Got involved in the attacks, but final ball wasn’t always great.

19. LUKA MODRIC 3.5
Not his most creative night but was full of running from midfield and it was his initial volleyed shot which eventually fell to Benzema for the opening goal.

14. CASEMIRO 3.5
Displayed a wonderfully composed football brain when everything around him seemed chaotic. Need and tidy from midfield and even tried his luck with a few long-range strikes.

8. TONI KROOS 3.0
Recorded an assist for Ronaldo even though it was attempted strike on goal. Could have picked out some more incisive passes in behind, but diagonal balls were mightily impressive.

17. LUCAS VAZQUEZ 2.5
Much of the play went down the opposite flank which meant he didn’t have a lot of time to test the full-back. Sent a few decent crosses in, but didn’t stretch his legs with many dribbles.

9. KARIM BENZEMA 3.5
Got the goalscoring ball rolling with a predatory finish following a save from the keeper. Linked up well with the other attackers but could have been a bigger direct threat as the game progressed.

7. CRISTIANO RONALDO 4.0
It looked like it wasn’t going to be his night after a series of miscontrolled touches. However, burst into life after a scored penalty and went on to net a hat-trick with another two great finishes.


22. ISCO 3.0
A lovely command of the ball after coming on.

16. MATEO KOVACIC 3.0
Cameo appearance in extra-time.

6. NACHO FERNANDEZ 3.0
Late change for Ramos.

21. ALVARO MORATA 3.0
Could have scored, but defender cleaned off the line.
