Real Madrid might not be playing in the summer, but there is no time for a break as Los Blancos have eight players representing their national team in the UEFA EURO 2020. In this series, I will follow Real Madrid players playing for their respective national teams in the EUROs and rate their performances after each round.

All eight players representing Real Madrid qualified to the knockout stages, and they play a vital role in helping their team in the group stages.

Here is how the Real Madrid players performed in the EURO after the second round of games on the group stage.

Gareth Bale – 4.5/10

Gareth Bale was an isolated figure in Wales’ 1-0 defeat to Italy. Italy dominated the game and stifled Wales’ progression into the final third. Bale barely saw the ball as he only had 25 touches and skied a big chance on the 74th minute. While this was not Bale’s best performance, his man-of-the-match display against Turkey ultimately helped Wales through to the round of 16.

Thibaut Courtois – 6.5/10

Finland barely threatened Belgium’s goal and Courtois only had to make one save.

Eden Hazard – 7/10

The best news for Eden Hazard against Finland was that he completed the 90 minutes and looked fit. He did have a scare in the first half, but it was nothing serious. Hazard did not get as involved as he would when he is in form. However, he still completed two dribbles and almost opened the scoring for Belgium but was denied by Lukas Hradecky with a fantastic save.

More from The Real Champs

David Alaba – 7.5/10

Alaba played in his natural left-back position in the final group stage match against Ukraine, and he was instrumental in Austria making it to the round of 16. Playing as a fullback helped unleash the Austrian’s attacking prowess. He completed four key passes and assisted Cristoph Baumgartner for the winner. Real Madrid will be delighted to have this version of Alaba show up next season.
