Real Madrid faced RB Leipzig in the Champions League on Wednesday. Here are the notes attributed by our editorial staff to the people of Madrid.
Courteous: 6.5 – Good game from the Madrid goalkeeper who made three good interventions in the first half to keep the score at 0-0. A clean sheet that will do the Belgian good.
Carvajal: 7 – Like its last outings, we had a Carvajal in diesel mode. A bit shy early in the game, but strong defensively overall. Good second period with in particular a decisive intervention.
Nacho: 7 – The Madrid captain behaved as such on Wednesday evening and he once again proved Carlo Ancelotti right who continues to implicate the Spaniard. Very good game from Nacho.
Rudiger: 6.5 – Not very serene in his interventions during the first act, the German clearly raised his level after returning from the locker room. It is this Rüdiger that we expect to see in Madrid.
Alaba: 5 – A small disappointment in the left corridor, especially in the first period when the Austrian left boulevards behind his back. He played a lot and there was also maybe a bit of fatigue.
Chuameni: 6 – Start of the match a bit sluggish, like the Madrid midfielder who was overwhelmed by the tactical positioning of the Germans. It got better over the minutes with still a lot of work to recover.
Camavinga : 5 – Average performance from the Frenchman who, unfortunately, still too often struggles to have the same impact as when he enters during the match. Too many technical errors tonight again.
modric: 6 – The maestro of Real was not having a great evening. He played at a very slow pace and it was ultimately like his team. Second was better.
⭐️ Valverde: 7.5 – The Uruguayan is taking on a new dimension in the Real squad, but also in the eyes of the world, quite simply. His repositioning in the middle allowed him to go further and to show all his qualities. His left foot goal is magnificent and shows how much he is progressing in the last gesture.
Vinicius: 5.5 – Difficult match for Vinicius, lacking benchmarks and with somewhat heavy legs no doubt. It should be noted, however, that he is still a decisive passer…
Rodrygo: 5 – The young Brazilian was not comfortable in this role as a top striker. He doesn’t have the same ability as Benzema to create a link with the rest of the team and we couldn’t find him.
Ancelotti: 6 – David Alaba’s positioning on the left was rather daring and unexpected. He left on the classic for the rest, continuing his rotations. The mayonnaise did not necessarily take this evening, he himself seemed dissatisfied, but his coaching during the meeting paid off.
