Following are player ratings and analysis for all the Madrid players.
Half-Time analysis for Real Madrid
Casillas: Had absolutely no chance on the Hoogland goal.
Nacho: Made an impressive recovery to poke the ball off Draxler’s toes in first-half stoppage time.
Varane: Has so far completed each and every one of his passes.
Ramos: Winning everything in the air, but will want to forget the deflection that allowed Schalke an equaliser.
Coentrao: Has offered a useful attacking outlet from the left.
Illarramendi: Completed 94% of his first-half passes, executed three tackles and stripped the ball off Obasi late on.
Alonso: Has already touched the ball 60 times.
Isco: Pushing forward as often as possible.
Jese: Carried off on a stretcher after sustaining an early knee injury.
Morata: The awkward member of Madrid’s attacking trio. He missed a pair of sitters in the opening period.
Ronaldo: He has now scored 40 goals in all competitions this season.
Bale: Picked up an assist on the Ronaldo opener.
Full-Time analysis for Real Madrid
Casillas: Had only two saves to make over the 90 minutes.
Nacho: Impressed at right-back and then moved into the centre of defense when Ramos was withdrawn.
Varane: Completed an incredible 100% of his passes on Tuesday.
Ramos: Was taken off with 20 minutes to play—no doubt with Sunday`s Clasico in mind.
Coentrao: Touched the ball 70 times and linked up nicely with Portugal teammate Ronaldo.
Illarramendi: Touched the ball 80 times, completed 94% of his passes and executed four tackles in an excellent, all-around performance.
Alonso: Didn`t start the second half—again, with an eye to Sunday`s clash with Barcelona.
Isco: Touched the ball 107 times and added energy from midfield in the Di Maria role.
Jese: May well miss the rest of the season.
Morata: Finally found the back of the net after being set up by Bale following a crossbar hit from Ronaldo.
Ronaldo: With 13 Champions League goals this term he is just one shy of Messi`s record.
Bale: Played a part in all three Madrid goals.
Casemiro: Has good lung power and a burst of speed, but his distribution was quite poor.
Carvajal: Played the final 20 minutes after replacing Ramos.
