Real Madrid vs Alaves:
After a disappointing loss to PSG in the middle of the week, Real Madrid returned to domestic duties when welcoming Deportivo Alaves to the Santiago Bernabeu stadium.
The first half was an uncomfortable half for the home team, who could not make it difficult for the Alaves keeper. The second half was a much better performance from Madrid.
Marco Asensio nearly scored for Alaves but they missed, and were punished for the Spaniard’s header from close range to open the scoring.
Benzema and Vinicious scored one each to complete their usual 3-0 win.
Let’s have a look at Real Madrid vs Alaves player rating:-
Real Madrid vs Alaves
Thibaut Courtois (October 7): There wasn’t much to do for the whole game, but the big Belgian was quick to distribute his power. Good game overall.
Dani Carvajal (7.5/10): Carvajal had a pretty good first half. His cross was a bit silly, but he did a good job of stopping the threat from Luis Rioja.
Eder Militao (October 8): Militao clearly won the battle against Joselu tonight. He was the first to make every move in the air and dominate and he also showed a willingness to rush onto the pitch and try to score.
David Alaba (7.5/10): Great match from the former ace of Bayern Munich. Alaba defended his goal well and consistently managed throughout the evening.
Ferland Mendy (7/10): Not one of his best nights in a Madrid shirt, but Mendy got the job done he asked for. Need to work on his sea crossing.
Fede Valverde (7.5 / 10): Shown as much determination and effort as he always does, and certainly deserves praise for replacing Toni Kross in the evening, without sounding out of place.
Casemiro (8/10): The midfielder in control of midfield was at his best again, filling in gaps, winning first-half challenges and doing the dirty work ‘elegantly’.
Luka Modric (8.5/10): Riding the ropes in Madrid’s midfield in Toni Kross’ absence, Modric exuded authority as he ran the show in the center of the park. Totally deserved the warm applause he received from the Bernabeu when he was substituted.
Marco Asensio (8.5/10): After a disappointing performance in Paris, Asensio is combining well with his teammates. He made a fatal error but Pere Pons forgave him. Scored a superb goal shortly after and also helped seal the second for Madrid.
Vinicius Junior (7/10): The young Brazilian started the game brilliantly, but he was erratic at times. He eventually ended his goal drought but Vinicius needed to work on his final product.
Karim Benzema (October 8): By his lofty standards, Benzema had a relatively quiet first half. However, he produced a few magical moments. Played much better in the second half, got an assist and a goal to end a good day.
Dani Ceballos (7/10): Ceballos came on for Modric and he poked a good slot into the Croatian’s position. Played a few good passes and also had a few tackles.
Rodrygo (7/10): Rodrygo made a very good penalty that Benzema took. A promising cameo from the young player.
Eden Hazard (None)
Lucas Vazquez (None)
Fernando Pacheco (7.5/10): Not surprised Alaves The captain has been busy with his boyhood club but Pacheco has the answer to every question Madrid asks. Not much could be done for any of the three goals he conceded.
Ruben Duarte (7/10): Duarte had trouble with Asensio and Carvajal but he was a good fit Real Madrid duo of intensity and running style. Overall, he made a good change.
Florian Lejeune (6.5/10): The Frenchman did not need to concede a penalty to Madrid, and despite his best efforts could not help Pacheco keep a clean sheet.
Matt Miazga (October 7): Miazga played a lot better than his defensive counterpart. He played solidly, but couldn’t do anything about the goals that Alaves conceded.
Nahuel Tenaglia (October 8): The Argentinian sang to keep Vinicius Junior around for large parts of the game. Perhaps one of the most prominent players for Alaves of the evening.
Tomas Pina (October 7): Pina has done a great job in his central defensive midfield role. He passed the ball great and he even put up a few good challenges,
Luis Rioja (7.5/10): During the whole first half, every attack of Alaves had Rioja’s hand. He is a constant threat on the wing. However, he struggled a bit in the second half before being substituted.
Mamadou Loum (October 8): The Senegal midfielder is among Alaves’ options. He’s literally everywhere on the pitch. He is initiating attacks, he is defending. Great game for Loum.
Gonzalo Escalante (October 7): Escalante had an average game. He tried to link up with his attacking players but could not create clear opportunities for Alaves.
Jason (7.5 / 10): Perhaps the best chance of the first half fell to Jason, who missed after Casemiro took a nap near goal. Getting a good account of yourself is paving the way for Pere Pons.
Joselu (October 7): Not the easiest night for Joselu, who couldn’t combine much with his wingers, nor could he win air duels against Militao. He will be disappointed with his efforts.
Pere Pons (October 6): The Spaniard was gifted an open goal to exploit on his first touch of the ball after coming on as a sub, but after the round, Courtois Pere Pons shot wide.
Edgar Mendez (October 6): After coming on as an extra, Mendez was unable to influence the proceedings as Alaves succumbed to Madrid’s pressure.
Manu Vallejo (October 6): Vallejo was also unable to make much of an impact after coming on for Luis Rioja.
Ximo Navarro (October 6): Ximo Navarro didn’t see the ball too much after coming on, but with Alaves conceding two goals before he came on, the train was on its way.
Toni Moya (October 6): Toni Moya also didn’t have much of an impact on the game as Alaves struggled for possession in the late game.
