Atletico Madrid 1-2 Real Madrid: Rodrygo wins man of the match award



Rodrygo continues to impress since his return from injury with another five-star performance to hand Real Madrid a nine successive win at the Wanda Metropolitano.


The Brazilian, who is expected to represent his country in the international break, broke free from Atletico Madrid’s defense following a chip from Aurelien Tchouameni.


In the absence of Benzema, Ancelotti opted for a three-man attack with Vinicius Junior, Rodrygo and Fede Valverde, who has scored in his last three games for the Los Blancos.


Rodrygo’s choice as the centre-forward appears to be the best option for the Italian at the expense of Hazard, who came on for the injured Benzema at Celtic Park.


How did Rodrygo perform vs Atletico Madrid?

Aurelien Tchouameni plays a through ball that breaks Atletico Madrid’s defense to locate Rodrygo, who was in the proper position unmarked inside the box by defenders and scores the first goal as helpless Jan Oblak stood and watched.


He also made some impressive runs that made Atletico’s defense look weaker throughout the first. Although a return from the break saw a decline, Rodrygo continued to be a thorn in the flesh for Atletico Madrid’s defense.


The victory means Real Madrid are back at the top of the La Liga table with two points above Barcelona and eight points better than their city rivals Atletico Madrid.
