Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid side picked up their first regional trophy of the season by beating city rivals Atletico Madrid in the final of the Spanish Supercopa. The game ended 0-0 even after extra-time, and only penalties proved to be the difference between the two sides on the night. Both teams had a plethora of chances to open the scoring over the two hours of football, but none of the stars on either side were able to take advantage.
Here are the Real Madrid players rated in their shootout victory over Atletico Madrid.
Thibaut Courtois – 9
The Belgian ended up being the hero of the night as he made a couple of excellent saves during the penalty shoot-out. Made some vital blocks during the fixture as well and distributed effectively too.
Dani Carvajal – 5
Gave the ball away on too many occasions and didn’t create anything meaningful going forward either. Showed his pace at times, but didn’t affect the tie at all.
Raphael Varane – 5
The French international never looked comfortable in the middle of the park and was often given a tough time by Alvaro Morata. Could’ve been more clinical with his forward passing.
Sergio Ramos – 6
The Spaniard defended well at times, but like his centre-half partner, was given a proper run-around by the Atletico attackers. Stuck to his guns for the entire fixture and worked hard.
Ferland Mendy – 6
The youngster did a decent job going forward as he delivered a couple of neat balls into the box. Worked hard tracking back as well, but was dribbled past on certain occasions.
Federico Valverde – 6
The young midfield sensation passed the ball around well but made his most important contribution late on. Took Morata down from behind to stop a sure goal and got himself sent off.
Casemiro – 5.5
The Brazilian struggled to keep the ball moving on the night owing to sheer lack of space between the Atletico Madrid lines. He wasn’t able to have his usual impact defensively either.
Toni Kroos – 6
The German moved the ball around well in the first half, and had a couple of strong shots blocked away. Probably should’ve worked better angles to shoot from as he didn’t create too much else.
Luka Modric – 6
The Croatian passed the ball around well but didn’t create too much quality in the final third. Made some silly passes out from midfield and invited the pressure onto the Madrid defence.
Isco – 6
The Spaniard wasn’t able to have his usual attacking impact owing to the structural integrity of the Atletico Madrid defence line. Had a couple of decent shots saved by Oblak.
Luka Jovic – 5
The youngster struggled to make the ball stick in the first half, and probably should’ve opened the scoring considering the chances he got as well. Was rightly taken off in the second half.
Rodrygo – 6.5
The young Brazilian took his penalty superbly during the shootout and was a constant bundle of energy after coming on in the second half of normal time.
Mariano Diaz – 5.5
Made a couple of decent attacking contributions late on and definitely looked a cut above Jovic after he came into the tie.
Vinicius Junior – NA
Didn’t have time to make an impact.
