Player Ratings: Real Madrid 4-1 Getafe

Goal rates every player as Carlo Ancelotti's side continue their unbeaten start to the season thanks to goals from Pepe and Isco along with a Ronaldo double

By Max Bentley

  • Diego López Rodríguez
    52

    3.00

    Diego López Rodríguez

    Another assured display from Lopez who commanded his area brilliantly from crosses and set-piece situations. Could do nothing about Lafita's deflected opener although he did produce some fine saves when called upon.

  • Pepe
    52
    2
    3.00

    Pepe

    Was a constant threat from attacking set-pieces and scored the equaliser when he responded quickest to poke home the rebound. Was unfortunate to see Lafita's shot deflect off him for the game's opening goal.

  • Daniel Carvajal
    63
    1
    3.50

    Daniel Carvajal

    Looked impressive whenever coming forward from right-back. His pace and accurate crossing caused problems to the Getafe back line all game.

  • Arbeloa
    50
    3
    3.50

    Arbeloa

    Did not look out of place in an unfamiliar left-back role and stifled the threat of Diego Castro effectively. He acted as a good attacking outlet on the overlap.

  • Nacho Fernández
    54
    2
    3.50

    Nacho Fernández

    A promising performance from the Spanish youngster who showed good reading of the play to sweep up whenever Real Madrid's defence was exposed.

  • Sami Khedira
    57
    2
    3.50

    Sami Khedira

    The German international produced a solid tackling display to break up the Getafe attack and even got down the other end to assist Ronaldo's second goal.

  • Ángel Di María
    75
    1
    4.00

    Ángel Di María

    He may not have got on the scoresheet but he caused the Getafe defence all sorts of problems with his incisive passing and dangerous crosses.

  • Asier Illarramendi
    50
    5
    3.00

    Asier Illarramendi

    A quiet performance from the summer signing who helped keep things simple in the centre of midfield.

  • Isco
    99
    5
    4.00

    Isco Top of the Match

    Was called into the starting lineup after Bale's late withdrawal and did not fail to disappoint, showcasing some splendid footwork and scoring with a fine, curling effort.

  • Cristiano Ronaldo
    127
    11
    4.00

    Cristiano Ronaldo

    Scored a first-half penalty and an improvised backheel flick to surpass Hugo Sanchez's record of 207 goals. Looks set for another splendid goalscoring season as he was a constant threat to Moya's goal.

  • Karim Benzema
    28
    40
    3.00

    Karim Benzema

    A disappointing performance from the Frenchman who missed a hatful of chances to get his name on the scoresheet. Was finally substituted after sections of the crowd demanded for the introduction of Morata.

Substitutions

  • Luka Modric
    58
    0

    Luka Modric

    Came on as a late substitute but looked an immediate danger with his clever vision.

  • Gareth Bale
    34
    7

    Gareth Bale

    Injured in the warm-up.

  • Jesé Rodríguez
    48
    2

    Jesé Rodríguez

    Came on as an 84th minute substitute and showed brilliant pace to tempt Michel into a rash challenge which saw Getafe reduced to ten men.

  • Morata
    44
    5

    Morata

    Did not have too much time to make an impact but looked lively despite spurning one presentable opportunity late on.

  • Miguel Moyà
    2
    3
    3.00

    Miguel Moyà

    Produced some smart saves to deny Ronaldo but was fortunate not to be sent off when he appeared to trip the Portuguese attacker outside the box.

  • Arroyo
    0
    5
    2.50

    Arroyo

    Was caught sleeping from Ronaldo's quick free kick but did a good job on the whole in limiting the Madrid threat down the right-hand side.

  • Sergio Escudero
    0
    7
    1.50

    Sergio Escudero Flop of the Match

    Really struggled to cope with the movement of Di Maria and was unsurprisingly withdrawn by Garcia at half-time.

  • Alexis
    1
    3
    3.00

    Alexis

    Was Getafe's most impressive defender, producing a series of well-time blocks and tackles to keep the scoreline respectable.

  • Diego Castro
    0
    4
    2.50

    Diego Castro

    Found himself well marshalled by Arbeloa and had more joy when he drifted infield, threading through some neat passes for Miku.

  • Míchel
    0
    6
    2.00

    Míchel

    Not the best of days for the 27-year-old who failed to hold the line for Pepe's goal before handling in the box to gift Real Madrid a penalty. His day got even worse when he was sent off for bringing down Jese.

  • Pedro Mosquera
    0
    4
    2.50

    Pedro Mosquera

    Did a good job in marking Isco during the first half but seemed to tire and was outplayed by the Real Madrid midfielder as the game went on.

  • Pedro León
    1
    5
    3.00

    Pedro León

    The former Real Madrid man looked Getafe's most dangerous creative threat with his quick movement and intelligent reading of the game.

  • Lafita
    2
    4
    3.00

    Lafita

    Opened the scoring with a deflected strike and looked lively in the hole behind Miku. However, his game was brought to an early end after Carvajal's rash challenge.

  • Miku
    0
    4
    2.50

    Miku

    Provided the assist for Lafita's opener and often found himself embroiled in physical battles with Pepe and Carvajal. Was fortunate to escape punishment after appearing to elbow the right-back in the ribs.

Substitutions

  • Roberto Lago
    0
    4
    2.50

    Roberto Lago

    Came on to replace Escudero at half-time and gave Getafe some defensive stability, despite struggling to prevent Carvajal from causing problems down the right.

  • Rafa
    0
    3

    Rafa

    Was introduced as a substitute midway through the second half but struggled to contain the threat of Isco and Ronaldo.

  • Pablo Sarabia
    2
    4
    2.50

    Pablo Sarabia

    The young midfielder looked impressive when he was introduced and often got into some promising positions between the Real Madrid midfield and defence.
