Real Madrid welcomed Inter Milan at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium earlier tonight as they looked to collect maximum points at home. Los Blancos made a good start to the game and got their noses ahead in the 17th minute courtesy of Toni Kroos’ excellent strike from long range. The Madrid giants defended their lead well and went into the half-time interval 1-0 up on the scoreline.

Nicolo Barella was given his marching orders in the 64th minute. Los Blancos capitalised on their numerical advantage and killed the game off in the 79th minute when Marco Asensio found the back of the net with a brilliant shot from outside the box. The match ended with Carlo Ancelotti’s players securing a comfortable 2-0 victory in front of their home fans.

Let’s take a look at how each Real Madrid player fared during the match against Inter Milan.

GK: Thibaut Courtois – 7/10

The Belgian keeper made a few solid saves and earned an easy clean sheet at home.

RB: Dani Carvajal – 8/10

The Spaniard cleared his lines when required and made a few inviting chances for his teammates in the final third. He ended the game with an assist to his name.

CB: Eder Militao – 8/10

Militao was a rock at the back and made multiple interceptions for his team on the defensive end of the field. He also put his foot through the ball when in danger of being exposed inside his half.

CB: David Alaba – 6.5/10

Alaba did not take too many risks with his clearances and performed well to earn a clean sheet at home.

LB: Ferland Mendy – 6.5/10

Mendy made two important clearances and was a strong presence in the air. However, he offered very little in the opposition half.

CM: Luka Modric – 7/10

The Croat midfield ace completed two promising dribbles and made one good chance in the attacking end of the pitch.

CM: Casemiro – 7.5/10

Casemiro anchored the midfield quite well and caused a few problems for the opposition in the final third.

CM: Toni Kroos – 7.5/10

The German international got his name on the scoresheet with a superb strike in the first half. He ran out of gas and got replaced in the 77th minute.

RW: Rodrygo – 7/10

Rodrygo was a constant goal-threat but wasted some decent chances to find the back of the net. At least, he has got an assist to show for his efforts.

ST: Luka Jovic – 6.5/10

Jovic had his moments deep inside the Inter Milan half but there was no goal for him tonight.

LW: Vinicius Junior – 7/10

He created some inviting opportunities for his teammates to score but did not have his shooting boots on.

Substitutes:

CM: Eduardo Camavinga – 6/10

Camavinga added some energy to Carlo Ancelotti’s midfield.

CM: Federico Valverde – 6/10

He brought some dynamism to Madrid’s midfield.

ST: Mariano – 6/10

Mariano hardly got a sniff at goal.

RW: Marco Asensio – 7/10

The Spaniard scored a memorable goal with a stunning strike from long range.

LW: Eden Hazard – 6/10

Hazard didn’t get any chances to find the back of the net.
