The Spanish shot-stopper had little to do throughout, making routine saves to deny Coro and Aaron.
His energy down the right hand side allowing for Bale to cut inside regularly, and he used his pace to cover well.
A solid performance from the young Frenchman, who pressed excellently to force his man back towards Manu Herrera's goal on many occasions.
Didn't have a great deal to do, pushing into midfield at times to try and push his side forward. Picked up a yellow card for a late lunge on Javi Marquez.
A solid outing from the former Liverpool defender, who wasn't really tested throughout the match, and delivered a couple of useful crosses.
Scored a 30-yard screamer that rattled in off the underside of the crossbar
Á. di María
An all-action performance from the midfielder, who drove down the left hand side from the midfield three well. Delivered a number of quality crosses.
Composed and efficient, the former Sociedad midfielder didn't look out of place, with his neatness helping to fill the void replaced by Modric. Fortunate to score given the deflection, but deserved the goal for his efforts.
A scrappy game from the midfielder, who gave the ball away more regularly than we are accustomed to seeing.
Failed to score to equal Raul's record for consecutive goals, though his pace did cause Cisma a few problems at times.
Had a bright start to the game, but didn't quite have the rub of the green. Got into great positions, but was either given a bad ball or failed to get the required contact. Testing Manu Herrera on several occasions.
Made several smart stops and was quick off his line to command his area well in the first half.
Didn't allow for Jese to have a profound effect on proceedings, marshalling the 20-year-old well and using his experience.
Covered well on a couple of occasions to prevent the likes of Bale from haring directly through the heart of the defence.
Kept Bale in check, not allowing the Welshman to do anything but fire poor efforts towards goal from long range.
Made a couple of important last ditch challenges in the first half, but could do little as the visiting defence was torn apart in the dying stages.
Worked extremely hard to the point where he was dead on his feet in the later stages. Didn't allow the hosts' central midfield pairing to settle into the game too often, picking up a yellow card for some scrappy fouls.
An all-action performance from the 36-year-old, who looked to be physically far younger than his years. Broke up the play and made things difficult for the likes of Alonso.
Didn't have too much of an effect on proceedings, making a few cynical fouls, failing to have any kind of impact pushing forwards.
His speed permitted him to break and drive at Pepe, but he enjoyed little success, with Arbeloa having a solid game at right-back.
Manu del Moral
His pace allowed for Elche to break upfield at times, but he didn't trouble Dani Carvajal much throughout.
Had Elche's two close-range shots of the game, but was unable to muster up anything more than a tame effort straight at Diego Lopez.
