Classification: Atlético beats again in Sevilla
Nothing could be done for the seventh-minute screamer Ivan Rakitić. He wasn’t asked to do too much until the final few minutes, when Lucas Ocampos pierced the 88th-minute winner at the near post. – 6.
Flipped to the side and inserted to the back of the right wing, but not at its strongest. Not helped with the change from Llorente to De Paul and he didn’t move forward like he so often has. Had left Papu Goméz to the left of Seville. Another good return to action for the Englishman – 6.
Put on the center back as an interim measure and impressed in position. Another solid performance, and it’s a good way for Diego Simeone to integrate another passer in the team without damaging his midfield too much. – 6.
Much of Felipe’s value comes from his danger on set pieces. Brought hope to Atlético Madrid by equalizing in the 33rd minute. Solid Brazilian display – seven.
He has been asked to play more as a central midfielder than a central defender which is good news as he continues to look suspicious as he steps back – 6.
Looked like Atlético’s most dangerous player again. His ability to beat a man sets him apart, and when he can send the ball into space he causes problems. Needs more end product, but it could be a structural issue as opposed to Carrasco’s issue – seven.
Returned to midfield after passing to the right-back. He looked energetic and had some nice flashes in attack, but had to be substituted after 40 minutes due to an injury – 6.
Could have done better to close Rakitić for the first goal. Thomas Delaney jumped on him during the streak that produced the winner of Ocampos. He needed to be more physical – 5.
Another excellent delivery from a corner kick for Felipe’s goal. A laborious performance, but the difficulties of the Atlético team make everything more difficult and Lemar is a victim – 6.
Poor first half for the Argentine, whose unpredictability can harm Atlético as much as it can help. This was the case with the first with a chaotic and sloppy first half. Withdrawn at the break for Félix – 5.
He still has skills that few have when he can put the ball, but he continues to struggle to fit into the game. Another anonymous first half and only had a few touches in his 15 minutes on the field in the second half. Its shape is a huge question mark – 4.
Rodrigo De Paul
The Argentine replaced Llorente after 40 minutes. His runs down the middle of the pitch helped Atlético. However, team-wide uncertainty affects a very talented player. – 6.
Replaced Correa at half-time. He has a hard time playing with his back to goal and the constant search for free goals that he doesn’t get diminishes his influence. He has the kind of talent that no one at the club has, but his attention is sometimes elsewhere – Ocampos beat him to score the winner. Hit the crossbar with a cheeky effort at the end – 6.
Replaced Suárez after 56 minutes. Looked dangerous and lively when given the chance. His accumulation game and his pace of work are the most impressive characteristics of his production. – 6.
