Player Ratings: Real Sociedad 2-0 Atlético Madrid

A terrible team performance rife with terrible individual performances.

Jan Oblak (5) Not at fault for either goal really, the first taking a deflection and the second being deflected off his own face. Was removed as a precaution. Get well, Jan.

Kieran Trippier (4) Wasn’t great, exposed frequently defensively, particularly by Martin Ødegaard. He’s had a decent start to the year but this was one to forget.

Stefan Savić (6) Faded as the match went along. Was in the wrong place at the wrong time as Ødegaard’s opening goal sliced off his leg and in behind Oblak.

José Giménez (6) Had to be active to cover up mistakes made by his fullbacks, and had a header well-saved by Moyà with the game just about out of reach.

Renán Lodi (4) Was quite poor defensively and could not create enough chances going forward to offset that. Conceded the soft foul which led to Real Sociedad’s second goal.

Thomas Lemar (4) Only lasted the first half and did not do much while on the pitch. It’s becoming a serious worry now whether he’ll ever be worth that price tag.

Saúl (5) Could not get any kind of control of the game from midfield. Still not clear what his best role is in the center of midfield.

Koke (5.5) Ran around a lot and had some nice moments but struggled to dictate the tempo first from central than wide midfield.

Vitolo (6) Got better as the match went along but it is worth wondering whether he’s better as a super sub. Had the best chance of the match saved by Moyá.

Diego Costa (5.5) In fairness, he didn’t get much service. But when he had the ball not much came of it.

João Félix (5) Again looked smooth on the ball but could not translate that into any end product. Could not glide around markers with any ease. Removed, inexplicably, for Correa.

Subs

Marcos Llorente (5) Not impressive and has not yet had a signature performance for Atlético Madrid. This might have been a game for Héctor Herrera instead.

Ángel Correa (3) Came on ten minutes earlier than Antonio Adán (who is a goalkeeper) and completed the same number of passes. No shots, no dribbles, dispossessed twice. Anonymous. Team was outscored with him on the pitch.

Antonio Adán (5) Did well enough when he came on, only had to make one save.
