Here are how the Galacticos matched up…
GK) Iker Casillas, 7
The keeper managed a couple of impressive saves, and couldn’t be blamed for either goal.
LB) Marcelo, 5
Charged forward too much, leaving the defence wide open on the counter attack.
RB) Daniel Carvajal, 5
He was lucky that Neymar was unable to finish most of chances throughout the match.
CB) Sergio Ramos, 4
Went to sleep on the goal, and again was lucky that the Barca forwards were missed a lot of shots.
CB) Pepe, 6
His usual aggressive self, and the best defender before presumably being taken off because of an injury.
