Real Madrid Player Ratings vs Barcelona - Bale anonymous, Ronaldo quiet

Luka Modric

How did Real Madrid's players fare in their 4-3 defeat against Barcelona? Here are the ratings for Carlo Ancelotti's side...

Diego Lopez 6 - Lopez looked slow to react on the first two Barcelona goals, but was given no chance with either Messi penalty.

Dani Carvajal 6 - Carvajal kept things simple, but didn't overlap or go forward enough to exploit spaces in behind left back Jordi Alba.

Pepe 7 - The Portuguese international was his usual physical self, going into tackles - and confrontations - like he always does, but it wasn't his most dominant display.

Sergio Ramos 5 - Ramos was having a decent game up until his sending off, as he clipped Neymar on his way through to goal, and once Madrid were down to 10 men, it was always an uphill task.

Marcelo 7 - Marcelo didn't get involved as much from an attacking perspective as he usually does, but dealt well with Barcelona attacks, putting in tackles and winning aerial duels.

Xabi Alonso 6 - Alonso was guilty of committing the foul for the second Barcelona penalty, and failed to impose himself on the Barcelona midfielders, who kept the ball at ease.

Luka Modric 8 - Croatian Modric was key to Madrid winning the ball back keeping the ball in midfield, and kept things simple in front of the back four.

Angel di Maria 9 - Despite appearing to be ill throughout the first half, di Maria was outstanding, showing energy and endless running as well as quality into the box.

Cristiano Ronaldo 7 - Whilst he won and converted the second half penalty, Ronaldo wasn't as influential as Madrid boss Ancelotti would've hoped tonight.

Karim Benzema 8 - Frenchman Benzema had more shots than the rest of the team combined and was guilty of missing some guilt-edged chances, but his two goals were well taken.

Gareth Bale 6 - Bale once again disappeared in El Clasico, having a couple of driving runs and just one shot as he failed to really trouble the Barcelona back line on a consistent basis.

Subs:

Raphael Varane 6 - Varane was introduced shortly after Ramos' red card, and gave a solid performance in the Madrid back line.

Isco 5 - With just three touches, it was tough for Isco to make much an impact with Madrid down to ten men. 

Alvaro Morata - wasn't on the field long enough to make an impact.
