Vinicius Junior dances above the hate! Real Madrid winners, losers and ratings from emotional derby clash with Atletico

Winner: Vinicius Junior

While he struggled to channel his emotions into on-field production at times, this was undoubtably still a show of mental fortitude to go a full 90 minutes in hostile conditions as his team continued to roll even in the absence of injured striker Karim Benzema. He now gets to link up with supportive Brazil team-mates on international duty.

Winner: Rodrygo

The Brazilian forward combined well with Aurelien Tchouameni before running onto the latter’s magnificent pass and applying a wonderful finish. He was a key figure in the win due to his movement and ability to link up with those around him.

Winner: Federico Valverde

His drive into the Atletico Madrid half played an important part in the build up to the first goal. He came rushing in at the back post to meet the ball after Vinicius Junior hit the post and fired in the second goal of the game.

Winner: Aurelien Tchouameni

A lovely performance from the Frenchman. His pass for the first goal was astounding and he looked solid in the centre of the midfield. Truly a standout performer for Real Madrid this season.
