Madrid approved and suspended at Anfield: San Courtois!

Courtois: Well, he saved Madrid. Starting with the one that kicked Salah out in minute 2. Otherwise, another game could have been played. But there was more from the Belgian: popcorn shot to Milner's squad, blocking a point-blank shot from Firmino, and a last to Salah … A crack.

Valverde: Really good considering that he played most of the game as a winger, a position that is not his. In the first part it cost him. In the second, it was even liked in some climb. Great pass to Vinicius, who failed the heads up. The game ended as a medium.

Militao: Great game, very fast the few times he had to defend space. He blocked several shots that could well have been a goal. He even allowed himself the luxury of some precise 40-meter pass.

Nacho: Very firm, like all the games he has had to play in the absence of Ramos. Super match yours with Militao.

Mendy: Sober, without being happy in the attack like other times. His game was not a good one and at the end he lost a ball that forced Courtois to make a fourth stop.

Casemiro: It had a lot of merit that he endured a game of such intensity with a yellow. The one that saw Milner for an excessive entrance (and avoidable) in the 24th minute of the game. Very good also with the ball, something he sometimes is not valued for.

Modric: Strange in him, in the first half he lost four or five balls. But at that moment the pressure from Liverpool was still suffocating. When it relaxed, the Croatian was seen more.

Kroos: It was not his best game. Neither could Madrid have the ball while he was on the field. The German is among cottons and he was substituted in 71 ’.

Asensio: Like Vinicius, he let his skin run backwards. Maybe that's why (also like Vinicius) he was not fine when Madrid had possession.

Benzema: Usually improves everything that goes through your boots. He left another gem, a play with several breaks in the first half that ended with a shot at the post.

Vinicius: Very hard on defense. What it touched. But, once again, he missed the definition. He was able to kill the game in a heads-up against Alisson in the 65 'and he didn't.


Odriozola: That Zidane preferred to give ownership to Valverde says it all. And even so he had minutes at the end of the game. He lost some dangerous ball, but he was also very active on his wing.

Rodrygo: Much desire, little success. Zidane gave him 20 minutes when Vinicius was out of air.

Isco: He entered very late with the idea of ​​being able to have the ball, but then Liverpool was in their last arreón and it could not be.
