Had one nervy moment when he made a poor clearance, which allowed Real Madrid back in but it did not prove costly. Showed good judgment to collect Ronaldo's low ball into the corridor of uncertainty with Di Maria lurking.
Tried every trick in the book to halt Ronaldo, legal or otherwise and did a fair job of limiting the danger of the Portuguese though he was skinned before the disallowed goal. As Barca turned the screw, he played more of an attacking role and formed a good combination with Pedro.
Comfortable at left-back, he had few troubles with Di Maria, who predictably always came inside on his left. Was eager coming forward as well and his anticipation of danger was spot-on, as one would expect from a player with 100 games to his name in this competition.
Was calm under pressure in the opening stages, particularly in possession as Real Madrid pressed with greater urgency. Made one outstanding tackle on Di Maria, which rightly gained a round of applause.
Like Puyol, once more not a fish out of water despite being deployed outside his normal position - he was even competent in the air belying his height. Made one terrific tackle on Ronaldo, which epitomised his battling qualities.
In the first half, he was the epitomy of calmness in the intense midfield area, timing his interceptions to perfection. Got forward too, heading straight at Casillas for one of the better early opportunities. Sold Xavi short before Madrid's equaliser, which was out of character with the rest of his play but it proved costly.
Started brightly, closing down well and linking with Xavi. His close control in tight spaces was superb as was his running from midfield into attack. The pass through to Pedro was majestic, ruthlessly slicing open Real Madrid's defence.
Xavi was the facilitator to Iniesta's buzzing movement, knowing exactly where to be to lay the ball off to his fellow midfielder. Benefited from a lot of space in midfield, which was surprising.
Began on the left-hand side and would come inside. Forced a fine stop from Iker Casillas on 35 minutes when he had not been hugely involved hitherto. Still a long way short of his best form.
Finally ended his team's quest for a goal with a finish every bit as emphatic as Barca's superiority. Gave Barcelona a different dimension with his genuine width on the right-hand side, which stretched the visiting defence. Thankfully, his shameful antics of the first leg were absent.
He came close to a first-half goal on many occasions as he peppered Casillas and was denied each time. His persistence even after the losing ball meant Madrid's defenders had little respite.
Had little to do in the first half-hour save making a straightforward stop from Busquets' header He then proved himself equal to whatever Villa, and particularly Messi threw at him.
Returning from suspension, he had one life before being booked for a trip on Messi. Walked a disciplinary tightrope thereafter and was very fortunate to still be on the pitch at half-time.
Very much a steady performance, allowed Villa to elude him on one occasion but did not put a foot wrong otherwise. Managed to get forward when he could without leaving himself exposed defensively.
The Brazilian popped up with his team's equaliser after not having the best of games going forward. He had trouble dealing with the twin threat of Pedro and Dani Alves, particularly the former's darting runs inside the full-back. It was no surprise then when he failed to pick Pedro up for the opening goal.
Certainly was not as reckless as Carvalho however at times he was static instead of taking charge of the situation - Busquets' header being a case in point. Should have been more assertive with his fellow centre-half on a booking.
Very much designated as the hard man of the midfield, he dealt well with Messi and Iniesta on several occasions when danger was looming. However, even he was outbattled by the Argentine genius at times and he became ever more careless in the tackle.
Kept it very simple with his passing and his set-piece delivery was not up to his usual stand. Less aggressive than Lass, his game was more about closing down than the strong challenge, which as he showed with a failed lunge on Messi, is not his strongest suit. Booked as he struggled to keep up with the Argentine.
Á. di María
Could have landed his side in big trouble when he was caught in possession early on. Pressed the opposition very high up the pitch. Sought out Ronaldo on several occasions with mixed results. Perhaps should have scored when he hit the post but to his credit kept his head to find Marcelo and notch up an assist.
Kaka received the nod over Ozil marking a shift in Mourinho's thinking but did not get as much service as he would have liked. When he got the ball, looked to get rid quickly and we did not see his trademark mazy dribbling. Worked hard but surely one must expect a great deal more of a player of this calibre?
Struggled to impose himeslf on the game at all until he tucked the ball into the net only to then realise that the play had already been called back. It was a surprise he lasted as long as he did before being replaced by Adebayor.
Set the tone for a more positive Madrid approach with a couple of early runs at Barca's defence. Sometimes his decision making was questionable, as seen with the handball on 30 minutes. Began the second-half well after a quiet spell.

Can on in injury time for Puyol to an electrifying reception from the Camp Nou faithful following his return from his liver tumour operation.
- 26 Fontàs
- 20 I. Afellay
- 30 Thiago Alcântara
Replaced Villa with just over 15 minutes left in order to stiffen up the midfield.
- 11 Jeffren
- 25 J. Dudek
- 19 E. Garay
- 35 Nacho
- 11 Granero
His introduction was almost an hour overdue but he took time to adjust to the pace of the game as evidenced with an errant first touch out of play.
It didn't take long after he came on for his clumsiness to cause a minor flashpoint as he earned a caution. Helped out in defence, but had no impact in attack.
