Player Ratings: Real Madrid 3-1 Chelsea

Goal.com took in the action at Sun Life Stadium in Miami, where Cristiano Ronaldo was in fine goalscoring form to lead los Blancos to glory in the International Champions Cup

By Keeghann Sinanan

  • Iker Casillas
    459
    65
    3.50

    Iker Casillas

    The Madrid captain certainly had a spring in his step with former antagonist Jose Mourinho in the house, pulling off a few fine reflex saves to keep the opposition at bay.

  • Sergio Ramos
    303
    64
    3.00

    Sergio Ramos

    Apart from a few brief positional wobbles at the start of the second half, Sergio Ramos never looked troubled, and was brave in the challenge.

  • Marcelo
    412
    46
    3.50

    Marcelo

    Spent large spells of the game camped in the opposition half, effectively playing as a left winger. That approach paid dividends early on as he slipped into the box to drive home the opening goal with a placed shot.

  • Pepe
    288
    77
    3.50

    Pepe

    Romelu Lukaku was no mach for his brand of physicality and tenacity at the back, as he was first to virtually every ball in the box. A fearless display.

  • Arbeloa
    156
    190
    2.50

    Arbeloa

    The full back did his job effectively enough against Eden Hazard, but was little help in the offensive third with some wayward passing.

  • Isco
    492
    59
    3.50

    Isco

    Another fine showing from the Malaga capture, who is quickly turning out to be an indispensable piece of Carlo Ancelotti's midfield. Set up Ronaldo's second with a pinpoint cross, and was a menace throughout with his Iniesta-like ability to weave his way out of trouble.

  • Mesut Özil
    422
    67
    3.00

    Mesut Özil

    The German midfielder stuck to his task well, ensuring that the ball was kept moving at a high temp to supplement Madrid's cutthroat approach during their good spells.

  • Luka Modric
    521
    51
    3.50

    Luka Modric

    Positioned himself well defensively to help contain the Chelsea threat, and was impressive as a fulcrum going forward, setting many attacks in motion with his long passing from deep.

  • Sami Khedira
    306
    67
    3.00

    Sami Khedira

    Often the lone defensive presence in the middle for the hosts, and was his typical industrious self, closing down the man on the ball tirelessly.

  • C. Ronaldo
    756
    59
    4.00

    C. Ronaldo Top of the Match

    The irrepressible forward capped off another sterling pre-season night with a pair of goals to clinch the trophy for Madrid. Gave his side a 2-1 lead with an absolutely stunning free-kick, before sealing matters with his head from close range.

  • Karim Benzema
    280
    96
    3.00

    Karim Benzema

    Linked well enough in the first half with the rest of the attack, and even managed to test Cech early on with a low drive. His threat could have been more consistent though.

Substitutions

  • Ángel Di María
    315
    50
    3.00

    Ángel Di María

    Came close to adding a fourth off the bench with two volleys that whizzed just off target. A lively cameo.

  • Morata
    269
    55
    2.50

    Morata

    Denied glory late on by a correct offside call on his finish from Ronaldo's feed.

  • Daniel Carvajal
    288
    43
    3.00

    Daniel Carvajal

    Not much to do defensively, as the game was pretty much wrapped up shortly after his arrival for the second half.

  • Petr Cech
    133
    96
    3.00

    Petr Cech

    No chance for either of Ronaldo's goals, but it was certainly not impossible to expect him to get a hand to Marcelo's opener. Good low save on Benzema early on.

  • Branislav Ivanovic
    121
    114
    3.00

    Branislav Ivanovic

    The Serbian was brave in defence, but eventually began to falter against the relentless pace of Madrid on the flanks.

  • Gary Cahill
    52
    187
    2.00

    Gary Cahill

    Could have done a lot better than letting Marcelo's shot slip between his legs, and was part of a mix-up at the back when Ronaldo stole in to score the third.

  • John Terry
    94
    158
    2.50

    John Terry

    Safety-first defending from the Chelsea skipper, but he was badly exposed by the movement of the quicker legs around him.

  • Ashley Cole
    119
    105
    3.00

    Ashley Cole

    Solid defending as ever from the experienced full back, and his forward play was decent, though a little unambitious.

  • Oscar
    100
    154
    2.50

    Oscar

    The Brazilian began the game with a lot of energy and assistance on the defensive end, bu rather drifted to the periphery as time wore on, and his Madrid counterparts took control.

  • Marco van Ginkel
    175
    122
    3.00

    Marco van Ginkel

    A quietly impressive outing from the young signing from VItesse, who read the game exceptionally well in his own half, though was admittedly overrun on one or two plays.

  • Ramires
    240
    61
    3.50

    Ramires

    The Brazilian was his typically tireless self throughout his time on the field, and his hard work came to bear fruit when be burst forward to clip home in the first half to put the scores at 1-1. Unfortunate to be on the losing side.

  • Frank Lampard
    141
    185
    3.00

    Frank Lampard

    Chelsea's Mr. Dependable put in a decent shift, providing good defensive cover as well as a goalscoring threat at the other end, coming within a Casillas palm of rasping home from 20 yards.

  • Eden Hazard
    171
    169
    3.00

    Eden Hazard

    Played in fits and starts, but when he was involved, he was a real threat. One move in particular caught the eye - a barnstorming run past two players that ended with a stinging piledriver that Casillas had to stretch to reach.

  • Romelu Lukaku
    69
    267
    2.00

    Romelu Lukaku Flop of the Match

    Hassled and harried off the ball by Pepe, and the forward's youth betrayed him on crucial occasions, as a lack of composure on two half-chances saw him hack the ball well into orbit.

Substitutions

  • Kevin De Bruyne
    153
    126
    3.00

    Kevin De Bruyne

    Gave his side some real goal threat in midfield, testing Casillas with a header and looking to attack the ball at every opportunity.

  • Victor Moses
    78
    163
    2.50

    Victor Moses

    Provided little in the way of penetration on the flanks, as the Madrid defense were able to contain his rather one-dimensional forays forward.

  • Michael Essien
    92
    162
    2.50

    Michael Essien

    Never caught onto the pace of the game in his brief spell on the pitch.

  • Andre Schürrle
    83
    153
    2.50

    Andre Schürrle

    Threatened to break away once or twice with his pace, but it turned out to be nothing more than blind alley chases.

  • Fernando Torres
    226
    115
    2.50

    Fernando Torres

    Not much of a focal point up front for the Blues in another forgettable cameo.
