Real Madrid entertained Barcelona at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium earlier tonight as they looked to pick up all three points at home. Los Blancos made a poor start to the game and shipped in the first goal in the 29th minute when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored with a solid header. Ronald Araujo scored his side’s second goal just nine minutes later with a good header as the Madrid giants went into the half-time break 2-0 down on the scoreline.

Ferran Torres added another goal in the 47th minute before Aubameyang scored again with a chipped finish. Los Blancos ended up losing the Clasico by a 4-0 scoreline.

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

GK: Thibaut Courtois – 6.5/10

The Belgian keeper made some important saves at the back but still ended up shipping in four goals tonight.

RB: Dani Carvajal – 6/10

He had a quiet game in the first half and got replaced at half-time.

CB: Eder Militao – 6/10

Militao made a few important defensive contributions but still ended up allowing four goals during the game.

CB: David Alaba – 6/10

Alaba struggled to command his penalty area with conviction and had a forgetful night on the defensive end of the field.
