Full match player ratings below:
Kepa, with a rating of 6, is difficult to fault for the goal he allowed, although it’s possible that he could have made a better effort to touch the ball. He made an important save in the second half, but had very little to do throughout the match due to Getafe’s defensive tactics.
Carlo Ancelotti recently praised Dani Carvajal, labeling him as the top right back available in the market based on his current performance. Carvajal appears to be in good physical condition and shows great confidence on the field. Although he may not have been as influential as in his previous games, he still delivered a reliable performance.
Toni Rudiger has seamlessly taken over the Militao position without any noticeable decline, which is a great compliment to the German player.
David Alaba, number 7, began the game as a central defender but later moved to the left side. He consistently made numerous runs on the left wing in an attempt to disrupt Getafe’s defensive setup.
Fran Garcia performed poorly, particularly on the back-pass decision that led to a goal conceded. He appeared apprehensive throughout the match, with subpar passing and heavy touches. There was one notable positive moment when he successfully fed the ball to Joselu, but unfortunately, the big target man failed to capitalize on the opportunity from close range.
Tchouameni has displayed great consistency in his performances across four games, showcasing defensive solidity and confidence in possession.
Luka Modric had a performance rating of 7. He lost two consecutive aerial duels, which resulted in the goal scored against Real Madrid. However, he redeemed himself by delivering a beautiful cross with the outside of his boot, contributing to Joselu’s equalizing goal.
Eduardo Camavinga, who was assigned the number 6 jersey, had a difficult time with the referee during the match. Despite making clean tackles, he was unfairly penalized. Real Madrid expected him to be more accurate and productive in his offensive plays, and as a result, he was substituted during halftime.
Jude Bellingham, who is only 8 years old, was destined to play for this club. Once again, he proved himself with a game-winning goal in the 95th minute, bringing excitement and energy to a transformed Bernabeu stadium.
Rodrygo had a notable performance in the game, showcasing his skills and creating numerous chances. Despite taking 8 shots and hitting the woodwork once, he was unable to find the back of the net. His impressive dribbling and ability to bypass multiple opponents allowed Real Madrid to advance towards the attacking third and penetrate the Getafe defense.
Joselu performed at a 7.5 rating. He had a disappointing chance in the first half after receiving a pass from Fran Garcia. However, he was able to score a goal by expertly timing a rebound in the penalty area. His ability to control and skillfully flick the ball showcased his high level of proficiency.
Toni Kroos was the standout player of the match, despite only playing for 45 minutes. He completely changed the dynamics of the game and provided Real Madrid with the accuracy they were missing. He was unlucky to hit the post, but he also made 7 important passes and successfully completed 7 out of 9 long balls. How much longer can Ancelotti continue to leave his top midfielder on the sidelines?
Brahim, who is 7 years old, has brought a positive energy to every game he has played, even though he hasn’t had much playing time.
Nacho performed well after coming on as a substitute for Fran Garcia at halftime. This led to Alaba being shifted to left back. Nacho showcased strong recovery runs and displayed urgency in the crucial moments towards the end of the game.
Fede Valverde, who wore number 7, came close to making an assist shortly after entering the field. He then partnered with Kroos in a double pivot formation for the last 15 minutes.
Lucas Vazquez, who wore the number 7 jersey, entered the game and successfully performed his role. He managed to dribble past two opponents without losing control of the ball and won all five ground challenges he faced. He revitalized the right side of the field towards the end of the match.
