Dani Carvajal – 7/10
Dani Carvajal looked good on the right-hand side. He defended well and kept things in check. The former Castilla player won five tackles and four aerial duels.
The Spanish right-back made himself an outlet in attack as well. Carvajal sent a lovely ball in towards the six-yard box for Rodrygo, and a powerful strike from outside the box, forcing Alex Remiro into a save.
Sergio Ramos – 7.5/10
Sergio Ramos is 34 years old and still putting out performances like he is in his prime. A solid display at the back from the Merengues captain.
Ramos also showed how beneficial he is in Madrid’s build-up play. He completed 87 passes at an astounding 97 percent accuracy, including 12 out of 12 longballs.
Raphael Varane – 8/10
Raphael Varane had a horrendous performance against Manchester City in the Champions League last season. A lessor player would have found it hard to come back from such a situation. However, it looks like the French World Cup Winner has returned stronger than before with a brilliant performance against Real Sociedad.
Varane won three aerial duels, completed three interceptions, two clearances, and made a vital block to deny David Silva from scoring the game-winner.
Ferland Mendy – 7/10
Ferland Mendy has established himself as the starting left-back in this Real Madrid team. He continues to be a bright spot in the backline for Los Blancos.
The former Lyon player contributed with three interceptions and two clearances. Mendy also completed three dribbles and had two keys passes.
