Our match recap will be up soon, but you have the chance to rate Real Madrid's players below.
The first half wasn't good, and Ramos' red card certainly didn't help the team. Bale's goal was brilliant though. The curve was so hard to predict that Galatasaray's keeper thought the ball was going over the post. It was disappointing to see Jesé leaving the pitch because of Ramos' red card, but that's just the way it goes.
In the second half, Arbeloa put Madrid ahead with a good finish in the box. He could have scored his second goal minutes later, but his shot went wide. Alonso joined the match replacing Casemiro, whose minutes weren't as good as expected. Arbeloa assisted Di María on Real's third goal, completing a much-deserved offensive night. Isco scored his seventh goal of the season in the 80th minute.
Overall a good result after a game that should've been tougher after Ramos' red card. Arbeloa was arguably Real Madrid's Man of the Match.
