Ter Stegen – APPROVED
He barely reacted to Vinicius’ 0-1 but saved his teammates in several internships at Real Madrid.
Dani Alves – SUSPENDED
Being the shadow of Vinicius is a complex task. Following the best footballer currently in LaLiga at 38 years old was an odyssey for Dani Alves. The Brazilian overflowed him on numerous occasions and forced a yellow card on one of those. He was substituted at 78 ‘with 1-2 on the scoreboard.
Araujo – GOOD
He forced himself to the maximum to be in this match and it was noticed that he was not in his best physical moment. Vinicius demanded several counterattacks and could not be as forceful as he is used to. Still it was a bone for the Madrid attackers.
Piqué – SUSPENSO
He was absent in the dangerous actions of Madrid, he left the job to Araujo.
Jordi Alba – APPROVED
Offensively he had the entire left wing but was not deep despite this. Dembélé left him the lane but did not manage to generate danger until the final section, with a center from which Ansu Fati’s header emerged for 2-2.
Busquets – SUSPENSION
He had a complicated match, where he had to dance with the ugliest. Modric and Kroos beat him to the dance in the center of the field. He came out in the photo of Vinicius’s goal: he is confident with possession and Benzema more rogue than anyone else swipes the ball from him to start the counterattack that would lead to 0-1.
De Jong – SUSPENSO
He is still trying to recover his best version but he is still below what is expected of him. It was important in the 1-1, since he is the one who combs the ball that Dembélé would take advantage of to cross. He was replaced at halftime by Pedri.
Gavi – APPROVED
He was constant and took advantage of his intensity to recover several balls in the center of the Madrid field. Offensively, he did not provide great solutions. He was eventually replaced by Nico.
Dembélé – GOOD
This time it was the extreme left of the team, where he loses that facility for overflowing on his side but gains the possibility of hitting with his right hand. His was the center that Luuk de Jong took advantage of to make it 1-1, after a rejection by Militao. Also several dangerous actions carried his stamp, as well as a couple of shots that proved the white behind. He was unable to surprise Courtois.
Ferran Torres – SUSPENDED
It was his debut as a culé and it showed. Ferran started as a right winger and had a hard time appearing from his side, turning over and going inside constantly. He saw the yellow very soon after a cheeky grab at Mendy, who overflowed with ease. He has yet to adapt to his teammates, he was imprecise and was replaced at half-time by Abde.
Luuk de Jong – BIEN
It has gone from being disowned to being one of the team’s most important resources for generating danger. Barça has gone from wanting only the ball on the ground to seeing it constantly overlooked. There the Dutchman is benefited, who had a couple of occasions in the area and managed to head them, prevailing behind the white behind before achieving 1-1 with great luck. He senses the clearance of Militao and the rebound sneaks into Courtois’s goal.
Abde – PASSED
He jumped very dynamic after the break, trying to overflow whenever he could.
Pedri – APPROVED
His entry into the field had an immediate impact and made Barça better. He tried the shot in one of his first appearances and almost managed to surprise Courtois. Its impact faded.
Ansu Fati – GOOD
He went unnoticed for much of the game but appeared when his team needed him most. He took advantage of Jordi Alba’s center to head for the 2-2 goal.
Memphis – SUSPENSO
Nico – APPROVED
He jumped intensely and gave Barça dynamism.
Ferrán Jutglà – NO TIME
No time to assess.
Xavi – APPROVED
Although his initial approach was surpassed by Carlo Ancelotti’s, the changes did give his team an extra life with the entries of Pedri and Ansu Fati, although he had no room for maneuver for extra time.
