LaLiga giants Real Madrid secured a 2-0 Champions League group win after beating Inter Milan at Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday.

Inter applied all the pressure from kick-off, keeping most of the possession but things changed thanks to a wonderful strike outside the box from Toni Kroos while Marco Asensio scored the other goal.

  • Casemiro Alaba Real Madrid

    Carlos Casemiro - 7.44

    He started off a bit reserved due to the fact that if he did pick up a yellow card he would be suspended in the first leg of the round of 16.

    However, that did not stop Casemiro doing his job providing extra cover to the Real Madrid backline, doubling up on players and making crucial tackles to break down the play.

  • Rodrygo Real Madrid 2021-22

    Rodrygo Silva - 7.61

    The young Brazilian winger had a solid performance, pressing Inter Milan from kickoff. 

    He had his opportunities to get on the scoresheet but decision making let him down. He hit the post in the second half after Kroos played a great ball to find him in the opposition box.

  • Dani Carvajal of Real Madrid.

    Dani Carvajal - 7.70

    This was Carvajal's best performance for Los Blancos since coming back from injury. The Spanish fullback made the right side of defence difficult for Inter Milan to attack.

    He made three clearances, two blocks, four key passes and also got an assist.

  • Toni Kroos Real Madrid

    Toni Kroos - 7.75

    Kroos opened up the scoring with a wonderful goal from outside the box with his weaker foot.

    The German was one of the standout players on the night, controlling the match tempo with the most touches on the ball and a passing accuracy of 95%. He also created a big chance for Rodyrgo who should have done better than hitting the post.

  • Lautaro Martínez y Militao, Inter de Milán vs. Real Madrid

    Eder Militao - 8.04

    Militao was the best player on the pitch, putting in a massive defensive display and breaking down any Inter Milan threat. 

    He commanded the backline with such confidence, winning all his aerial duels, making four clearances and five interceptions. 

    He is becoming such an important figure in the Madrid core and he is only 23.
