Player Rating: Atletico Madrid 3 – 1 Real Madrid; 2023 la liga


Below are the full match player ratings for Atletico Madrid 3 – 1 Real Madrid:

Kepa-6: Three goals were conceded as Morata and Griezmann were left open in the box for free headers.



Lucas Vazquez-3: Apart from one duel, Samuel Lino and Saúl Níguez troubled Lucas with their dribbling and off-ball movement. Atleti’s most dangerous chances and the coordination of each goal came from Madrid’s right side.

Tony Rudiger—6: One of the few players who can be saved from this match. Did his job well and showed his recovery speed on more than one occasion.

David Alaba-2: Possibly David Alaba’s worst performance in a Real Madrid shirt. Constant misunderstandings between him and Fran Garcia resulted in many goals being conceded. Atleti took advantage of their biggest weakness: aerial duels inside the box.

Fran Garcia-2: Continues to play with fear and anxiety. As a defender, one is taught to always mark the most dangerous man; Instead Fran was caught ball watching and did not move forward to provide additional support to Alaba.

Tony Cruz—7: Madrid’s best player on the night. Tried to make a comeback by scoring a beautiful goal from outside the box before the end of the first half.

Eduardo Camavinga—6: Struggled in the first 20 minutes, but improved as time went on. Defensively strong with some “cobra tackles”, but lacks imagination in the final third.

Fede Valverde—5: The Uruguayan’s best play of the game was a pass to Joselu inside the box, who troubled Rodrigo and ultimately fired a long-range shot past Tchoumeni. Was otherwise quiet and gave too much space to Samuel Leno on the opening goal.

Luka Modric-3: Very quiet performance with very little noticeable impact.

Rodrigo—4: As the lone striker often moves out of position in search of the ball, he requires more discipline to maintain his position and stay in the central channels. It was never going to happen for them that night and they were not off to a good start to the season.

Jude Bellingham—6: Despite completing 7 dribbles on the night, he was strangely not called for a clear foul at the top of the box. Fouled 3 times, but probably should have earned double the amount. Aside from his individual efforts, struggled to get involved in attack and link up with teammates.

Replacement:

Joselu—4.5: An out of control inside the box and a “tee-up” for Rodrigo, offering very little.

Ferland Mendi-4: Madrid stopped conceding after Mendy’s arrival, but his aggressive displays will do no favors to their fans, who already have their doubts about the Frenchman. Multiple crosses had gone wildly awry.

Dance-4: Poor connection with Valverde when attempting to combine down the wing and some poor crosses after his introduction.

Chouameni—7: Almost a scream came from outside the box. He brought balance and good counter-press when he entered the pitch. Questions will be asked as to why he did not start this match.

Brahim Diaz—6.5: A lively spark who tried to make something happen in the last 20 minutes of the match.
