Real Madrid vs Man City player ratings as Phil Foden and Vinícius Júnior impress

It’s a Champions League classic. On Tuesday night, Santiago Bernabeu hosted one of the best games in European competition, as Real Madrid drew 3-3 with Manchester City

The Premier League side opened the scoring in the second minute after a smart free-kick from Bernardo Silva caught Andriy Lunin at his near post. The 25-yard-free kick started what turned out to be a game filled with sensational goals. 

Real Madrid were unwilling to sit back and see the opening part of the match and were immediately looking for an equalizer. Edouardo Camavinga took a shot from 25 yards out, and a massive deflection off Ruben Dias saw them pull level in the 12th minute.

Manchester City were caught out seconds after kickoff, and it was 2-1 to Real Madrid in the 14th minute. Rodrygo slotted in to turn the tie around completely and set up an exciting 75+ minutes.

It was end to end until halftime but both teams failed to score. After the break, it was the same story, but the two sides were unable to get the most of their chances. 

Phil Foden pulled out his magic wand and curled in a beauty from outside the box to level things up in the 66th minute. Josko Gvardiol did one better and scored a similar goal with his weak foot, this time for 20 yards out to make it 3-1 in the 71st minute. 

Federico Valverde ensured that Real Madrid got at least a draw from the game and scored a stunning volley in the 79th minute to make it 3-3. without further ado, here are the Real Madrid vs Man City Player Ratings from the game: 

Real Madrid vs Man City Player Ratings

Real Madrid player ratings:

Andriy Lunin – 6.5 – Should have done a lot better for the first goal, but the two goals in the second half were unstoppable. 

Daniel Carvajal – 6 – Was having a tough time dealing with Jack Grealish and did not do much in attack.

Aurélien Tchouaméni – 6 – Did well after picking up a booking in the 1st minute, but will now miss the second leg. 

Antonio Rüdiger – 7 – Handled Erlign Haaland well but was not able to concentrate on others. 

Ferland Mendy – 6.5 – Decent outing, but Foden and Silva were able to get past with ease. 

Eduardo Camavinga – 7 – Real Madrid’s main player at the heart of the midfield today as he was linking the defense and attack. 

Toni Kroos – 7 – Many were surprised to see him start but he put in another impressive shift. 

Federico Valverde – 7.5 – Even without the goal, it was a stellar display from the Uruguayan star. 

Jude Bellingham – 6 – Nothing special today as he was hitting the floor more often than not, but the referee was not interested in getting him the free-kicks and penalty he was looking for. 

Rodrygo – 7.5 – Was giving Akanji a tough time and ensuring that John Stones did not get a lot of chances to drift into the final third. 

Vinícius Júnior – 8 – A brilliant display from the Brazilian even though he failed to get on the scoresheet. 

Luka Modric – 7 – Was a threat to the Manchester City defence since coming on for Toni Kroos in the 71st minute.

Joselu – 6 – Did not make any significant impact after coming on in the 86th minute. 

Manchester City player ratings

Stefan Ortega – 6 – Couldn’t do much for any of the three goals as two were deflected off his teammates, while the third was a stunner. 

Manuel Akanji – 6 – Picked up a booing early in the game but remained composed to handle Vinicius and Rodrygo. 

John Stones – 7 – Pick of the Manchester City defenders for their defensive actions as he managed to do well every time he come up against Vinicius Jr. 

Rúben Dias – 6.5 – Unlucky to have an own goal to his name, but was brilliant and won every single duel today.

Joško Gvardiol – 8 – Was highly impressive today, and the goal made things way better for the Croatian.

Rodri – 7.5 – Tried to get Manchester City back in the game, but could not get a shot away. 

Mateo Kovačić – 6 – Thrown into the mix at the final minute because of De Bruyne’s illness. He could not do anything special against his former side and was unfortunately the second worst player in the Manchester City side.

Bernardo Silva – 8 – A brilliant display from start to finish from the Portuguese star.

Phil Foden – 8.5 – The Englishman’s goal changed the game in the second half, but he seems to have picked up an injury.

Jack Grealish – 6.5 – Was a thorn in the Real Madrid defense and was giving Dani Carvajal a run for his money. 

Erling Haaland – 6 – Hardly got to make an impact today because of Antonio Rudiger.

Julian Alvarez – 6 – Did not make any significant impact after coming on in the 87th minute.
