Real Madrid clashed heads with Shakhtar Donetsk at the Stadion Legii Warszawa earlier tonight as they looked to secure a victory in the UEFA Champions League. Los Blancos made a decent start to the game but were held to a scoreless draw at half-time.

Oleksandr Zubkov finally broke the deadlock in the 46th minute which put the home side 1-0 up on the night. However, the Madrid giants found a late equaliser via Antonio Rudiger’s injury-time goal as the contest finished 1-1 with both sides sharing the points.

Let’s take a look at how each Real Madrid player performed during the match against Shakhtar Donetsk.

GK: Andriy Lunin – 6.5/10

Lunin made one good save during the game but won’t be pleased after conceding so early in the second half.

RB: Lucas Vazquez – 7/10

The Spanish talent got stuck in with some solid tackles and made one good chance in the final third.

CB: Antonio Rudiger – 8.5/10

The German defender was a rock at the back for most of the game and popped up with a last-gasp equaliser in injury time which ensured a point for his team.

CB: Nacho – 7.5/10

Nacho earned the ball back multiple times and was good on the ball as well.

LB: Ferland Mendy – 6/19

CM: Aurelien Tchouameni – 6/10

He made a couple of crunching tackles but struggled to get a foothold in the game.

CM: Toni Kroos – 8/10

The German international got stuck in with some solid challenges to make life difficult for the opposition at the centre of the park. He picked up an assist for setting up Rudiger’s equaliser in injury time.

RM: Federico Valverde – 6.5/10

Valverde did his fair share of defending but lacked quality on the attacking end of the field.

CAM: Eden Hazard – 5.5/10

He was mostly quiet during his time on the field and got replaced in the 56th minute.

LM: Rodrygo – 6.5/10

Rodrygo came back to defend when needed and was a threat in the final third.

ST: Karim Benzema – 6.5/10

The Frenchman caused a few headaches for the Shakhtar defenders but failed to register a goal.

Substitutes:

CM: Luka Modric – 6.5/10

Modric added more creativity to Carlo Ancelotti’s midfield.

LW: Vinicius Junior – 6/10

He had a couple of bright moments in the game.

CM: Eduardo Camavinga – 6.5/10

Camavinga made one good run with the ball.
