Match Coverage

Real Madrid 1-0 City (agg 1-0): player ratings

JOE HART – 8 (Man of the Match)

Given no chance with the goal, but kept us in the tie with some stunning saves, notably from Ronaldo.

BACARY SAGNA – 7

Did very well to thwart the threat of Ronaldo, even though he lacks a threat going forward himself. He’s had an excellent season.

NICOLAS OTAMENDI – 7

At fault for the Madrid goal, but redeemed himself with some important and strong tackles in the second half.

VINCENT KOMPANY – N/A

Went off injured once again early in the first half. A huge shame for the City captain.

GAEL CLICHY – 7

Did well against Bale, and tried to get forward to support De Bruyne and later Sterling.

JESUS NAVAS – 6

He was on the pitch for 70 minutes but he didn’t really contribute all that much. Wasteful in possession at times too.

FERNANDO – 6

Unlucky with the goal, as it could have ricocheted anywhere. Carried on shielding the back four, but lacked purpose in possession.

FERNANDINHO – 6

An average performance from the combative Brazilian, who did nothing when on the ball and spent more time bundling people over.

YAYA TOURE – 6

Considering this was his last hurrah, this was a fairly disappointing showing. Couldn’t get his passing game going, lacked mobility, and was subbed after 60 minutes.

KEVIN DE BRUYNE – 5

After his heroics against PSG, this was hugely disappointing from Kevin. Created no chances and wasted a glorious free kick opportunity towards the end.

SERGIO AGUERO – 5

Spent all game dropping deep into midfield, and as a result we lacked an attacking threat. Had one good chance but was completely ineffective.

SUBS:

ELIAQUIM MANGALA – 6

His positioning wasn’t great at times, and there was far too much space between him and Clichy, which Real Madrid sought to exploit.

RAHEEM STERLING – 6

Gave us a bit of impetus and looked like he wanted to make an impact. Should have been brought on sooner.

KELECHI IHEANACHO – N/A

No real time to mark.
