Real Madrid put on one of the best first-half display of football we have seen in La Liga this season to win 1-3 away at Eibar.

Real Madrid traveled to Ipura and put on a brilliant performance away from home to win 1-3 against Eibar. Goals from Karim Benzema, Luka Modric, and Lucas Vazquez sealed the deal for Zinedine Zidane’s men. Los Blancos started bright and intense, creating chance after chance in the first 30 minutes, and went two goals up. Kike halved the difference for the home team with a stunning curler past Thibaut Courtois before the break.

In the second half, Real Madrid continued to create chances as Eibar came out strongly as they looked for an equalizer. Lucas Vazquez put the game to bed with a fine finish in the 90th minute.

Here is how the Real Madrid players performed.


Zinedine Zidane – 8/10

Zidane’s men could have been three or four goals up by the time Kike scored an absolute stunner. Zidane has steered the ship out of the storm and heading in the right direction.


Thibaut Courtois – 7.5/10

Courtois, as usual, looked comfortable commanding his area and made a couple of good saves. There was nothing he could have done to prevent the brilliant curler from Kike.

Dani Carvajal – 7.5/10

Dani Carvajal had an astute defensive shift, but his final ball in the attacking third lacked precision against Eibar. According to, he won three tackles, three interceptions, and two aerial duels.

Sergio Ramos – 7.5/10

Raphael Varane – 7/10

Varane had a couple of missteps in the match similar to Ramos but did mostly well against Eibar’s pressure. He had a game-high six clearances and won three aerial duels.

Ferland Mendy – 7.5/10

Casemiro – 7.5/10

Casemiro looks to be slowly getting back into form. His positioning was impeccable, often slotting himself into the right positions to shield his defense. He won two aerial duels, completed two interceptions and one clearance.

Luka Modric – 8.5/10

It was another man of the match performance from the Croatian captain. Luka Modric put a clinic on running circles around his markers, completing four dribbles along with some lovely passing. He also scored Real Madrid’s second goal with a fantastic strike from the top of the box.

Toni Kroos – 8/10

Toni Kroos is the best at what he does. He once again made passing look easy with pinpoint passing to create goal-scoring opportunities for Benzema and Rodrygo. He completed 90 percent of his 86 passes.

Lucas Vazquez – 8/10

Karim Benzema – 9/10
