Player rating: Real Betis 1 – Real Madrid 2; 2018 La Liga


Benito Villamarin played an important La Liga game between Betis and Real Madrid. The mountain of injuries and stoppages left Santiago Solari with a rare team, but despite that, Isco Alarcon still couldn't find a place in the team. Solari replaced the form on 3-5-2 instead. Vinicius got a soup despite not being trained all week and Fede Valverde got his first League over Ceball and, as mentioned, Isco. Betis dominated (70% vs. 30%), but Madrid was a fatal counter-attack through Vinicius JR, especially in the first half. The second half was a slightly different story, Madrid was even deeper after Karim Benzem had to get into the trauma and Betis equalized. Dani Ceballos could have put his team up another goal 88 minutes into the game, after a rush down the left, but his closing shot hit the post. It wasn't Madrid's best score, but they got all three points Benito Villamarin with Sergio Reguilón, Fede Valverde, Vinicius Jr, Brahim Diaz and Cristo Gonzalez.

Keylor Navas—6.5: Costa Rica has not shown much rust since returning to the injured Courtois line. Was quick from his line and decent with his distribution. But there was a lot of Bethys but he could not put any of his options, which meant that Navas had no busy days.

Dani Carvajal—7.5: Carvajal, who was positioned in the right-wing rear position, was tired of winning the game. He drove up and down all night. Despite having limited opportunities, he was ruled and took a delicate touch that allowed him to fake his defender and move forward. Completed the game with 2 handles, 2 clears and 3 attacks.

Nacho – 6: Overall, Nacho was a very good game. One bad sign in his copy book will be on the Betis equalizer. He and Varane would have been trying to get to the center to cover Canales when Ramos pushed forward to put pressure on Lo Celso. Otherwise it was very stable and had four solutions, 1 interception and 7 permissions.

Raphael Varane – 6: Quieter game from Varane, positioned as a central three-five-person line back. It would have had to be with Nacho on the Betis equalizer.

Sergio Ramos – 7: Madrid defended itself very deeply, so Ramos and the other did a nice job of blocking the passageways and reducing the space to 25 meters. The Ramos team has a high 10 distance.

Sergio Reguilon – 5.5: From Reguilon up and down the game – definitely tired when the game continued in the last stages and was replaced in 73 minutes. It was placed as a left wing back and in the first half it was very high. Has recorded 2 main passes and 2 frames.

Casemiro – 6: Still recovering for gaming fitness and performing much better performance than vs Sociedad. Won the free kick sent by Ceballos at the end of the game.

Fede Valverde – 6.5 The first start of the 20-year-old Uruguayan La Liga. It was made in possession and tactically disciplined. In the first half it was clear that he had achieved his goal and had to get the result.

Lucca Modric – 7.5: One of the best Modric games this season. Struggled all night with Guardado and was between defense and rare attacks. The left foot was evaluated for the purpose of opening. 2 keys were also managed during the game.

Vinicius JR – 8: Continue to be one of Madrid's best players Solari. His pace, energy, ingenuity and the general ability to disrupt his defense make him an important cogu of the Madrid attack.

Karim Benzema – 7: After half-time getting off with a deflected finger, she was desperately missed. Managed 3 keys go within 45 minutes. There was an important Madrid counterattack.


Cristo Gonzalez – 5.5: Properly showing the Castilla attacker, he was put on a half-time basis. There were a couple of nice hikes and their convictions, but they were a little disconnected from their teammates. Madrid was sitting deeper in the second half and saw less ball, so Cristo's influence was affected. Only 19 touches, but one shot, 1 key pass and 100% pass through his 10 passes.

Dani Ceballos – 8: Came with a point to prove. Obviously, he would have liked to start off against his former club in Seville, but this dissatisfaction was directed by a positive cameo. There was a 100% pass accuracy from his 9th pass and got the match winner free kick in 88 minutes. Clean ice in veins.

Brahim Diaz – 5.5: Just 9 minutes of action to showcase your things, but looked good in your limited minutes. His low center of gravity allows him to keep the ball so close and his speed makes the ball very difficult.
