Starting XI

Oblak (7.5): Solid. Although he did not have a whole lot to do, Oblak made sure he was ready when his name was called especially when Levante fired in crosses from the wings. He ended the match with three saves and another clean sheet.

Vrsaljko (8): Vrsaljko sent in some deadly crosses and finally had someone reward him when Antoine Griezmann took up an off-balance ball and roofed it.

Godín (8): The Uruguay international was a rock at the back. He made some crucial interventions to help contain a somewhat toothless (see what I did there?) attack and continue his good recent form.

Savić (7): Savić has been inconsistent this season but there were no obvious faults to pick out of his game today. Made some powerful clearances and only caught out once in the second half.

Lucas (7): Lucas has shown again and again that he is a great athlete and an extremely versatile defender. Other than his yellow card, Lucas stayed composed in the back and was excellent in the tackle.

Correa (9): Correa has these games where he really is on point and Sunday was one of them. In the 33rd minute, he reaped the rewards from his early aggression. Correa cut the ball to his right foot leaving multiple defenders in the dust and slotted the ball into the back of the net. After that, he assisted Fernando Torres’ goal.

Koke (7): Koke set the tempo and made the simple but effective passes at a 95 percent clip. He even got a rare rest.

Saúl (7.5): The Atlético Madrid canterano constantly took on Levante players and won 10 of his 18 duels. Also, he dropped back and made sure his presence was known. Saúl blocked two shots and made five tackles.

Vitolo (7.5): Great all-around game. Vitolo picked up an assist and hustled to track back on defense. He had three tackles which really helped to take the load off the back line.

Griezmann (7.5): Griezmann had a quiet first half and he picked up a yellow card while trying to appeal for a penalty in the 41st minute. In the second half, Griezmann came out firing and scored in his fourth straight league game before coming off on 58 minutes.

Gamiero (6): Gameiro played the whole match but did not have a shot on target. A good opportunity gone to waste.

Subs

Torres (7): El Niño’s farewell tour began in earnest with a volleyed finish from a Correa cross in the 77th minute. You could tell it meant a lot to him.

Gabi (7): Gabi came on in the 62nd minute and filled in really well for Koke. He kept up the tempo and intensity

Juanfran (N/A): Juanfran replaced Vitolo and played 12 minutes. Really could not do much.
