The Belgian couldn’t do much about the goals conceded but made some brilliant saves in the game. Courtois whipped accurate long balls on various instances for Vini to attack, which troubled the visitor’s defence to some extent.

Miguel Gutierrez- 6

The La Fabrica product started the game strongly and was actively involved in the game till the time he was taken off. Gutierrez was caught defensively numerous times and made some questionable decisions. The youngster registered an assist to his name that helped Madrid to equalize for the second time in the game.

Nacho Fernandez – 5

The Spaniard came in from an injury and was looking rusty. Nacho was at fault for the first goal and the second goal as well, going in with a sloppy tackle on Aspas that opened Madrid’s defence wide open for Celta to attack.

Eder Militao – 5.5

The Brazilian was the leader of the defence tonight but failed to deliver his best performance. Militao was uncomfortable defending Aspan and Mina. The defender also came close to scoring the sixth goal for the night in the final minute.

Dani Carvajal-5.5

The Spaniard didn’t provide much threat while attacking and made some sloppy passes, one of them nearly led to Celta’s goal.

Luka Modric – 6.5

Casemiro – 6
