DANI ALVES (JUVENTUS) 8.3

A stunning performance from the Brazilian against Monaco prompted some experts to label him as the best attacking right-back of all time.

He first fed Mario Mandzukic with a spectacular ball into the box for the opening goal, before registering a goal of his own with a thunderous volley to make it 2-0.

KARIM BENZEMA (REAL MADRID) 7.7

While Benzema didn’t offer much brilliance against Atletico Madrid, there was one moment of excellence that will be remembered by all Real Madrid fans.

Just when his team needed some inspiration, Benzema produced an extraordinary piece of skill. Realising Atletico’s defenders did not want to concede a corner, Benzema almost Iniesta-like dribbled past three of them.

He then got some space and passed it to Toni Kroos whose shot rebounded off Jan Oblak and was subsequently converted by Isco.

GABI (ATLETICO MADRID) 7.5

While his side may not have progressed to the Champions League final, Gabi was excellent throughout the second leg.

The captain was instrumental around the middle of the field and came to the aid of his ailing defence on several occasions.

GIORGIO CHIELLINI (JUVENTUS) 7.5

Juventus’ rock-solid defender Giorgio Chiellini was instrumental throughout the second leg.

A fabulous interception denied Radamel Falcao the opportunity to pounce for a certain Monaco goal.

He also helped his team create a series of attacks, which even if not converted, still put pressure on a gallant Monaco defence.

SAUL (ATLETICO MADRID) 7.4

Over the course of the season, Saul has shown his knack of scoring the opening goal in games.

Against Real, it was Saul’s header from a corner that initiated the home side’s flying start.

Despite not qualifying for the final, he once again showed he relishes the big stage.
