Player ratings: Villarreal 4 – 4 Real Madrid; League 2024

Full player ratings below:

Andrei Lunin—6: No real fault in the goals, but will be disappointed to have conceded four, especially with a Champions League starting place at stake.

Lucas Vázquez—9: A fantastic performance and a fantastic season overall. Scored with his left foot, curled in a perfect cross to assist Joselu's goal and found the run of Arda Guler to grab another assist – all within the first 45 minutes.

Military—3: Nightmare match against in-form Sorloth. I should have done better on Sorloth's second, third and fourth goals.

Rudiger—6: He cleared and cleaned up any loose balls that found their way into the backline, but there were communication issues with Militao.

Fran Garcia—6: Ran tirelessly up and down the left flank, defended well 1v1 but was tired in the second half.

Fede Valverde—7: Played as the only defensive pivot in a midfield with Modric and Ceballos. I covered a ton of ground and played like the season was on the line.

Dani Ceballos—5: Controlling the ball and good in tight situations, but a glaring error in their own box, losing possession, led to Sorloth's first goal.

Luka Modric—8: Play with bounce in your step, chain passes together and always be one step ahead of the opposing defender.

Arda Guler—9: There is no doubt that this child is special. Two goals to his credit (six goals in four starts), his two goals set an example of his technical quality and his composure in front of goal.

Brahim Diaz—7: He floated all over the front line and produced subtle touches and touches that fooled the Villareal defense, including on Madrid's third goal where he recorded an assist.

Joselu—7: Superb run to the post and header to score the second goal of the match.

Eduardo Camavinga—7: Replaced Valverde in midfield as Ancelotti tried to stop the bleeding after the team conceded three goals in quick succession to start the second half. Some nice exchanges with Modric and Arda Guler to break through the Villarreal press. Committed a number of important fouls in Madrid's defensive area to help relieve the pressure.

Nacho—5.5: Replaced Militao who had a tough match trying to deal with Sorloth. The defensive line was continually stretched due to the lack of coverage in midfield and Villarreal's quick transitions. Had some heavy passes to his teammates that put them in a tough situation.

Rodrygo-5: Couldn't bring the spark provided to make the game run.

Mario Martin—6: I arrived and immediately found myself faced with daunting challenges.
