Had no chance with Santa Cruz's goal or Antunes' wonder strike. Could have been a little more commanding from set-pieces.
Fell asleep at the back post which allowed Santa Cruz to run in behind and score. Didn't give out much change to the Paraguayan thereafter.
Shook off the attention of the Malaga defender to bullet home a header. As Malaga went a man down he had a relatively easy game at the back.
Only mistake was allowing Antunes to come inside too easily for the Malaga left-back's goal.
Had an entertaining duel with Iturra at right-back for Malaga but didn't get the better of him too often. Defended well.
Topped off a superb performance by rifling a lovely strike in off the post from the edge of the area to make it 5-2.
Displayed his massive range of passing. Was unlucky not to get on the scoresheet with a great effort from the edge of the box.
Looked like the Ozil of old. Showed an electric turn of pace and his passes were pin-point. Grabbed a goal in the first half.
Missed the chance to score with a poor penalty but eventually earned his 200th La Liga goal with a piledriver from a few yards out.
Bagged a close range goal but his performance lacked some urgency.
Denied Ronaldo with a superb penalty save in the first half. However, was injured by the unorthodox nature of the stop and had to be substituted.
A bit of a horror show tonight. Conceded the corner kick which lead to Madrid's opener. Was sent off and gave away a penalty kick after just 21 minutes.
Anonymous. Showed glimpses of his pace down the left but each attack fizzled out. Was eventually withdrawn for Onyewu.
Gave Malaga a ray of hope going into the break with a stunning strike into the top corner with his weaker foot. However, was duped far too easily for Ozil's goal earlier.
Was dominant aerially but was caught out of position far too often and was guilty of diving in at times.
Struggled without the organisation of Weligton next to him. Allowed the Madrid players far too much room in the box. Was sent off with 17 minutes remaining.
Overrun in midfield and struggled to face up to to Essien and Alonso. Tried his best to get in their faces but couldn't give his team a foot-hold.
Delivery into the box was top drawer, which further exposed Madrid's susceptibility from set-pieces. Completely ineffective after the break. Cut a frustrated figure.
Was unlucky to give away the indirect free kick which lead to Ronaldo's opener. Put in a couple of decent tackles, particularly on Ozil. But sat back too deep.
R. Santa Cruz
Showed good striker's instinct to grab his early equaliser for Malaga as he drifted in at the back post. However, as Malaga went down to 10 men he barely got a sniff.
Withdrawn due to a tactical shake-up from Pellegrini, following the dismissal of Sergio Sanchez.
