Was caught cold a little by Ronaldo's goal, failing to react to the cross. Made up for it with a stunning save from Di Maria, and always quick off his line.
Lost Cristiano early on and was punished as the Portuguese opened the scoring, but recovered to put in a solid performance.
The gaps left behind the right-back resembled more accurately a gaping chasm at times, and his work up the field also left a lot to be desired. Scored a great goal, however, which gave his side hope.
A few wobbles early on, failing to pick up Di Maria in a move that almost led to Madrid's second, but defended well and supported further upfield.
A rock in the middle of the pitch, controlling the game's flow and ensuring that Galatasaray was on top across the 90 minutes.
Failed to provide the decent service from out wide that Drogba so desperately needed, a disappointing show against his former employers.
Combative and strong in the middle, earning a yellow card in the first half. Threatened at times from deep and notched a wonderful strike.
Failed to impose himself on the Madrid back line in a tepid display, but helped to keep the Merengues quiet on the few occasions they broke forward.
Combined excellently with Sneijder throughout the match, pressuring Madrid down the flanks and forcing errors across the pitch.
Ineffective up front, it was little surprise when the striker was pulled off for the more dynamic Sarioglu.
Meandered through much of the game, struggling from poor service and a lack of initiative, but showed his striking instincts are still well intact.
Had little to do throughout a straight-forward first half, but must have feared being tagged as the villain as the goals starting raining in.
Looked comfortable early on, but in the second period succumbed to the malaise suffered by the entire defense and was missing for the cross that let in Drogba.
Went absent without leave in the second half as, from a position of complete superiority, Madrid capitulated. Could not handle Drogba.
Unaccustomed to such frantic attacking play and it showed, struggled at the back and was beaten all too easily for the second goal.
Á. Di María
As ever, was in the thick of the action as his surges from midfield caused Galatasaray grief. Will wonder how he did not net after an astonishing Muslera save.
It wasn't the game for the Germany international, as Madrid retreated into their shell and failed to close out the game with attacking football.
Overwhelmed in the middle, needed to pressure Galatasaray's midfield but was content to sit back and invite pressure onto the back line.
Made a decisive impact early on, overlapping on the right and teeing Ronaldo up to perfection for the opener. Maintained a decent level throughout.
A muted performance from start to finish from Argentina's No. 9. Looked unsure of his place in the team, and failed to make any impact in the penalty area.
Was fairly quiet in a defensive-minded Madrid, but came up with a typical poacher's finish to net the important opener. A lovely flick almost provided the second, before he killed off the encounter at the end.
