Getafe 0-3 Real Madrid: 3 players who impressed for Los Blancos | La Liga 2019-20
#2 Toni Kroos
While he might not get as much accolades as Casemiro or Luka Modric, a case can be made to consider Toni Kroos as the best midfielder in the world over the last seven years.
The German international is as calm on the ball as he is off it, while his pristine distribution and pin-point delivery played no small role in the recent successes enjoyed by Real Madrid.
Against Getafe, the 30-year-old was deployed in a midfield three alongside long-time partners Casemiro and Luka Modric and Kroos was at his majestic best, dictating the tempo of the game from the middle.
The former Bayern Munich man completed 86.7% of his passes, while he also supplied the telling cross for Raphael Varane to head Real Madrid 2-0 up.
He was substituted for Federico Valverde in the 70th minute after what was a commanding performance.Published 05 Jan 2020, 00:48 IST
