Real Madrid clashed heads with Osasuna at the Estadio de La Cartuja earlier tonight as they hoped to secure a win in the Copa del Rey final. Los Blancos made a good start to the game and scored the opening goal in the second-minute courtesy of Rodrygo’s effort. Carlo Ancelotti’s men sat on their lead well and went into the half-time break 1-0 up on the scoreline.

Lucas Torro equalised for Osasuna in the 58th minute. However, Rodrygo scored again for the Madrid giants just 12 minutes later which proved to be the match-winner. Real Madrid ended up winning the final by a narrow 2-1 scoreline.

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

GK: Thibaut Courtois – 7/10

The Belgian keeper made a few solid saves at the back and did enough to restrict the opposition to just one goal.

RB: Dani Carvajal – 7.5/10

He gave a good account of himself on the defensive end of the field.

CB: Eder Militao – 7/10

Militao kept things solid at the back but will be disappointed after conceding a goal in the second half.

CB: David Alaba – 7/10

He was solid when defending inside his half and was unfortunate to hit the crossbar.

LB: Eduardo Camavinga – 7/10

The French talent produced a solid display on the defensive third of the field and was good on the ball as well.

CM: Federico Valverde – 7/10

Valverde kept the ball moving quite well and managed to create some decent plays for others around him.

CM: Aurelien Tchouameni – 7/10

He got stuck in with some crunching tackles at the centre of the park and was tidy with his passing.

CM: Toni Kroos – 6.5/10

The German talent distributed the ball with conviction but was underwhelming when defending inside his half.

RW: Rodrygo – 8.5/10

Rodrygo scored a brace to give his team a crucial win in the Copa del Rey final.

ST: Karim Benzema – 6/10

He wasted a couple of decent chances and struggled to catch the eye in the final third.

LW: Vinicius Junior – 9/10

Vinicius Jr. caused all sorts of problems for the opposition defenders and picked up an assist for setting up Rodrygo’s first goal.


CB: Antonio Rudiger – 6/10

He kept things tidy at the back.

CM: Luka Modric – N/A

Modric hardly had any time to make an impact.

RW: Marco Asensio – N/A

He came on for the final few minutes of the game.
