A capable set of hands all evening, collecting every cross with confidence. Made a crucial save from Delgado with the score at 0-0. A few decent parries in the second half helped to see out the win.
A rock in the centre of the Madrid back line, he used all of his Champions League experience to help keep Lyon and bay and guide los Blancos to victory, in an inspiring display.
What a night from the full-back, he turned on the style in the final third, linking brilliantly with Ronaldo and showing fabulous skill to open the scoring. His perseverance allowed him to play a pivotal role in Benzema's second goal, in what was a superb night for the Brazilian.
Allowed Cissokho to reach the byline beyond him on more than one occasion in the first half, but improved as the match progressed and Madrid gained control of the contest.
Shackled Lisandro well for much of the match, but two petulant acts in the closing minutes could have, on another night, earned him a red card. The match was already won, and his behaviour was ludicrous.
Grew into the contest and as Madrid looked stronger, so did his grasp on the match. His cool head meant that the tie never looked in doubt, and his sublime passing range remains in evidence.
Á. di María
Worked extremely hard throughout to close down Lyon in their own half and force them into mistakes, and his lovely lob over Lloris was just reward for another fine display.
Never, ever gives the ball away. Even when surrounded by opposing players, he always selected the correct pass, and controlled Madrid's attacking play with aplomb. Interference played a part in the second goal, and neat header laid on Di Maria for the third.
Slightly nervous in the opening exchanges, perhaps aware of the occasion, but after a few misplaced passes, and Madrid's opening goal, he relaxed and helped play an important role in the win.
The Portuguese didn’t appear completely fit, but offered glimpses of his quality, forcing Lloris into a stunning first half block, and exchanging passes neatly with Marcelo to create the opening goal.
Put his former team to the sword in the first leg, and did so once again, showing composure to slot home the second goal that put paid to Lyon's chances. Had it not been for the work of Hugo Lloris, he could have had a hat-trick.
The French international enjoyed a stunning evening, producing a string of sensational stops to keep los Blancos at bay. His saves in the first half from Ronaldo and Benzema highlighted his quality, and the match would have been long over had it not been for his reflexes.
Distribution from the back was questionable all evening, and his dallying in possession allowed Marcelo to steal the ball from him and set up the second goal. Indeed, the Brazilian tormented him all evening.
Looked dangerous in Madrid's half early on, giving Ramos some difficulty, but looked susceptible in his own territory, and the shifting Madrid attackers gave him a difficult evening.
Back in the side after injury, but after a sturdy opening half hour, began to give the ball away, and in the end could not cope with the pace and precision of Real Madrid's attacks.
Made some fantastically-timed challenges in the opening stages to thwart Madrid’s attackers, but was undone by Marcelo’s skill at the opening goal. A mix-up with Cris allowed Benzema to sneak in for the killer second.
Started the match well and steadied the ship after Madrid's early chances, but was dominated by the home side's superior strength in the centre as the match progressed.
Once again, flattered to deceive. A player with so much potential, but struggled to exert any influence on the contest, and his set-piece deliveries were desperately poor, robbing his team of opportunities to test the Madrid defence.
Employed in a midfield three but had little or no involvement in the contest, being unable to support the attackers but also could not track the runs of the likes of Oezil, who worked well behind him.
Had Lyon's best effort of the first half, forcing Casillas to dive low to his left an parry his shot around the post, but like his colleagues soon drifted out of the match, as Madrid took control.
Employed in an attacking formation with Lyon's intent to attack, but after suffering a heavy challenge from Marcelo early in the match, disappeared without trace and was replaced at half-time.

Given the last fifteen minutes of the contest as Madrid saw out the victory.
- 16 Canales
Thrown on for the last five minutes to add some steel to the midfield.
Enjoyed a brief cameo towards the end of the match, but couldn't create a scoring chance.

Last year's hero came on near the end but couldn't create a similarly seismic impact.
- 21 M. Gonalons
Arrived as Lyon desperately chased a route back into the match, but couldn't get involved.
Introduced at half-time and look most likely to find the net, with two efforts stinging the hands of Casillas.
