Real Madrid vs. Real Betis player ratings: Los Blancos stumble to draw as La Liga title hopes take a hit

Real Madrid failed to move into first place in the La Liga after drawing at home to Real Betis on Saturday, 0-0. Los Blancos had their chances to win and dominated the ball as expected, but they lacked sharpness in the final third. The club still remains in second place in the league with five games to go.

But how did each Real Madrid player perform in this one? Here are our player ratings for the match for every starter, substitute and manager.

All ratings are out of 10, and the higher the number the better. A zero would be a first-minute red card. A 10 would be like a dominant hat trick.

Real Madrid ratings

(GK) Thibaut Courtois

90

Only had to make two saves, one which came from close and a narrow angle that he handled well. Had to worry about crosses more than anything. Denied Borja Iglesias with a fortunate save in the second half.

6

(DEF) Nacho

90

The defender was a bit overpowered at time by Betis’ strength but held his own and didn’t make any mistakes. Continues to be a reliable piece in this defense.

6

(DEF) Eder Militao

90

Struggled in the air and didn’t close down well enough, nearly costing his team. Not the worst performance, but he will have to be better in Champions League this week if he plays.

5

(DEF) Raphael  Varane

90

Dominated his duels, was a sure thing in the air and timed his challenges well. If anything his accuracy heading the ball out was a tad off.

6

(DEF)  Dani Carvajal

68

Had three clearances but didn’t have to worry about a whole lot. Got forward well but lacked sharpness. Was taken off for the final 22 minutes. 

5

(MID) Casemiro

90

The strongest player defensively. Was physical, led his team with three tackles and recovered the ball with ease at times. Also created a couple of chances. 

7

(MID) Isco

68

He moved the ball around with incredible precision but did not get the looks he wanted as both of his shots were blocked. Needed to be quicker to get off his shots. Came off in the second half.

6

(MID) Luka Modric

77

Got over an hour of action before being saved for midweek. He created a couple chances but none of them were really any good. Should have taken more shots from range as Betis worried about runners.

5

(FWD) Marco Asensio

77

Had more shots than any other Real Madrid player, and a couple of them were decent. He got into space, settled the ball well and had a crack, but at times he was trying to be too cute.

6

(FWD) Rodrygo

59

Not much from the young Brazilian. He looked lively in the opening minutes but quickly faded, not even lasting an hour.

4

(FWD) Karim Benzema

90

Only touched the ball 38 times, which is saying something considering how often he drops back a bit or wide to get the ball. Still looked like a threat before the ball got to him but just wasn’t sharp.

5

Vinicius Jr.

Rodrygo (59′)

Made an impact in his 31 minutes by looking more dangerous than any other player all game. Just couldn’t find the back of the net.

7

Alvaro Odriozola

Dani Carvajal (68′)

Sensational down the wing by creating two chances, one of which should have been scored. Really a bright spot that nearly helped take home three points.

7

Marcelo

Isco (68′)

Saw a lot of the ball and had a good look inside the box that he missed terrible. Really looked like he could be the difference at times.

5

Antonio Blanco Luka Modric (77′) Late sub who was sharp with his distributing but didn’t change anything. 6
Eden Hazard Marco Asensio (77′) In his 13 minutes of play, he created two chances.  He held on to the ball a bit too much near the sideline and should have been quicker to exploit spaces down the left. 5

Zinedine Zidane

5

Will feel like a missed chance in the title race. Time to quickly turn the page to Chelsea, but it would have been nice to see Hazard get more minutes than he did. The defense remains encouraging for the most part.
