Real Madrid faced off against Barcelona at the Nou Camp earlier tonight as they focused on securing a good result on the road. Los Blancos made a bright start to the game and got their noses ahead in the ninth minute when Ronald Araujo scored an unfortunate own goal. However, Barca managed to equalise just before the half-time interval when Sergi Roberto found the back of the net.

Frank Kessie ended up netting the winning goal for Barca in injury time as the Madrid giants crashed to a tough 2-1 loss in the Clasico.

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

GK: Thibaut Courtois – 8/10

The Belgian talent made a handful of crucial saves at the back but still ended up conceding two goals tonight.

RB: Dani Carvajal – 6.5/10

He did his fair share of defending and caused a few headaches for the opposition defenders.

CB: Eder Militao – 7/10

Militao gave a good account of himself on the defensive end of the field and made one key chance going forward.

CB: Antonio Rudiger – 6/10

He made a few important contributions at the back but won’t be pleased after allowing two goals tonight.
