Real Madrid Player Ratings Ahead of UEFA Champions League Final

  • Keylor Navas: 7/10
    1/11 Keylor Navas (7/10): Since the departure of Iker Casillas, Navas has established himself as a regular, playing a key role in last season's European title. Rumours of a move for David de Gea persist, though.
  • Danilo (6/10)
    2/11 Danilo (6/10): The obvious weak link in this defence, Danilo has struggled at times for Madrid. An injury to Dani Carvajal gives him a chance in the final.
  • Sergio Ramos (9/10)
    3/11 Sergio Ramos (9/10): Madrid's leader and very much a man for the big occasion. A colourful character and a fine defender, Ramos has scored in his side's last two finals.
  • Raphael Varane (8/10)
    4/11 Raphael Varane (8/10): Varane will profit from Pepe's continued injury problems, but he is far from a back-up. Quick, strong and classy on the ball, the France international deserves his place.
  • Marcelo (8/10)
    5/11 Marcelo (8/10): As Madrid have reasserted their European dominance, Marcelo has established himself as one of the world's finest full-backs. He loves to get forward on the left.
  • Casemiro (7/10)
    6/11 Casemiro (7/10): His role is not the prettiest, but Casemiro is a vital cog as he runs the hard yards and gives the ball to his more creative team-mates.
  • Toni Kroos (8/10)
    7/11 Toni Kroos (8/10): The 27-year-old is a central figure for both club and country, with a medal haul almost as impressive as his passing range.
  • Luka Modric (9/10)
    8/11 Luka Modric (9/10): There are not many better midfielders than Modric on the planet right now. He can pass, dribble and shoot, conducting play behind Madrid's BBC front-line.
  • Gareth Bale (8/10)
    9/11 Gareth Bale (8/10): Once the world's most expensive player, Bale has endured a frustrating season since starring at Euro 2016. However, he retains the ability and the confidence to turn this final.
  • Cristiano Ronaldo (10/10)
    10/11 Cristiano Ronaldo (10/10): But for Lionel Messi, Ronaldo would have long been established as the world's best. Regardless, he will go down as one of the finest goalscorers in history.
  • Karim Benzema (8/10)
    11/11 Karim Benzema (8/10): Relatively unheralded next to his fellow forwards, Benzema continues to score goal after goal. Juve cannot afford to give him time and space within 20 yards of goal.
