Jan Oblak, GK: 7
Made an absolutely scandalous save on Zouhair Feddal in the third minute, when he clawed away the defender’s goal-bound header. He even got a hand to Sergio Canales’ 65th minute penalty.
Santiago Arias, RB: 5
Atlético Madrid’s right back really only got involved in the first 45 when he went through the back of Francis’ knee, which earned him a yellow card. He was substituted at halftime.
Jose Giménez, CB: 6
Tremendous in the air with six headers won, but failed to make a clearance and contributed just one interception.
Lucas Hernández, CB: 5
If Giménez was quiet, Lucas was silent — zero tackles, zero clearances and just two interceptions.
Juanfran, LB: 6.5
Probably Atlético’s best defender on Sunday, which doesn’t speak well of his teammates. Working as hard as ever across both flanks.
Rodri, CM: 6.5
Made several recoveries and passed at a high clip (94 percent), but a bit sloppy going into the tackle and struggled to keep play ticking as he normally does. This was Rodri’s first league loss as a starter for Atlético.
Thomas Partey, CM: 7
Once more, Atleti’s best midfielder. Authoritative performance with seven tackles, three interceptions and a 90 percent pass success rate.
Ángel Correa, RM: 4.5
Like the fullback on his side, not overly involved in the first half other than a 41st minute booking. He made it to 75 minutes without seeing much action other than a few wayward crosses.
Thomas Lemar, LM: 5.5
Decision-making remains suspect, and despite a good work rate and some nice on-ball tricks, his place in the team really should be up for grabs considering his lack of end product.
Antoine Griezmann, FW: 6
Tried his hardest with five shots (one off the post) and four key passes, but couldn’t will his way to a goal.
Álvaro Morata, FW: 6
Inconclusive. Very good aerially — a quality Atlético really need from their forwards — and his side’s only shot on target. But he was also called for five fouls and denied a pretty clear penalty early in the second half. Still, Morata played all 90 minutes and appears in good physical condition.
Filipe Luís, LB: 4
Only notable action was the blatant handball which led to Real Betis’ penalty.
Vitolo, LM: 6
Really needs to start and offers more than Correa at the moment. He is a very slippery players whose change of pace and on-ball skill generates set piece opportunities.
Nikola Kalinić, FW: N/A
Has been poor off the bench this season and did not have enough time to make an impact. Doesn’t appear all that compatible with Morata.
