Great performance from the keeper who made a terrific double save to deny Di Maria and then Ozil in the first half. His composure gave his defence confidence as he made several top saves in the game. Helpless for Di Maria's goal.
The Portuguese defender, commonly known as Tonel, gave 100 percent this evening, despite his positioning being a little off at times.
Solid from the former Leverkusen man. Made a few rash challenges but showed decent pace alongside the likes of Ronaldo and started several Dinamo attacks with his passing.
The Argentine left-back looked particularly lively going forward. His pace gave Sergio Ramos plenty to think about and he looked fairly decent defensively.
The captain made some solid tackles and his passing was consistently good throughout the game. As Madrid improved in the second half, his influence on the game waned.
The midfielder certainly stood his ground against the Spanish side's star-studded midfield. He won a few 50/50 balls and his passing was precise throughout.
Lively performance from the man who scored 19 goals last season. His pace and skill caused problems for the Madrid back line but the final ball was not always there.
Mature display from the 17-year-old who showed some silky footwork and a willingness to get forward to support his side's cause. Surely bound for bigger things.
Not a bad game from the experienced midfielder. He looked bright going forward but was lucky to stay on the pitch when he hacked down Coentrao in the first-half.
The young defender filling in at right-back was particularly impressive in the first half. His tackling was solid and he was always looking to get forward.
Not a brilliant game from the striker. Dinamo were never going to create chance after chance but when he was played through one-on-one in the first half, his poor shot was straight at Casillas.
The Spanish No.1 had little to do this evening but kept his composure and used his experience to make himself big to deny Rukavina in the first half.
Poor in the first-half but like most of his team-mates, upped his game as the match went on. Got forward when possible and nearly set Ronaldo up for a goal a minute after Di Maria opened the scoring.
Average performance from the Brazilian who was responsible for giving the ball away twice in the first half. His game improved in the second and he grabbed an assist. However, he then ruined this by getting himself sent off, receiving a second yellow for diving.
Sloppy at times in the first-half but stood solid in the second when Dinamo attacked on the counter. Made some decent interceptions but his lack of pace meant Pepe needed to rescue him on a few occasions.
Decent performance from the former Porto man who had to bail out his back line on a number of occasions. His pace was the key for Madrid in defence.
The former Benfica man played fairly well in the middle of the park. He looked bright going forward and helped out the Madrid defence when possible.
Struggled at times with the movement of the Croatian side's midfield and was not given the chance to dictate play as he does so often.
Quiet from the usually impressive German. He failed to influence the game as much as he usually does and was replaced by Higuain late on.
Á. di María
The Argentine was arguably his side's most impressive performer. He grabbed the only goal of the game with an impressive strike and worked hard for his team.
Bright at times but did not receive the support he was used to. Unlucky not to open the scoring early on when his shot cannoned off the top of the crossbar.
Quiet performance from the Portuguese forward who was nowhere near his best. Had a few decent half chances but struggled to get possession of the ball.
- 12 F. Lončarić
- 28 A. Puljić
Played the final half hour and was a composing figure in the heart of the midfield.
- 77 P. Morales
- 99 I. Krstanović
The striker entered the game late on but was unable to provide the necessary firepower in front of goal.
The Montenegrin forward held the ball up well when on the pitch but was unable to get a shot away on goal.
- 13 Adán
Came on as a late sub but did not have enough time to have an influence on the game.
- 19 R. Varane
- 6 S. Khedira
Entered the game not long after Marcelo was dismissed and helped shore up Madrid's defensive play.
Showed some nice touches in a brief cameo appearance as Madrid spent the final 20 minutes on the back foot.
