Well, it’s another clean sheet.

Jan Oblak (7.5): Probably the only positive from this poor match. The captain kept another clean sheet, and none of his four saves were too difficult.

Šime Vrsaljko (5): The Croatian’s first game back for Atlético Madrid after a long absence due to injury. He definitely had some rust to shake off. Although Vrsaljko attempted to send in a few crosses, there were points in the match where he looked lost defensively. It was nice to see him back in the lineup, though, and perhaps he can build off this performance.

Felipe (6): The center was a solid presence in the air — as he has been all season — and also came up with multiple clearances. The Brazilian attempted to get involved in the struggling attack, whiffed his one shot late in the match.

Stefan Savić (4.5): Didn’t have his best game and was not nearly as involved as his partner. His anger got the better of him during the climax of the match when he was given a yellow card for arguing.

Renan Lodi (6): His 86 touches were second on the team, his crossing was dangerous and his finished with three key passes. The 21-year-old also continues to improve defensively.

Ángel Correa (6): Correa attempted to take players on from his wide position and wasn’t afraid to shoot. The Argentine could have taken another second with a volley that skied over the net, but for a chunk of this match he was the team’s creative spark.

Marcos Llorente (4.5): His passing was simple and accurate, and his tactical understanding has improved. But he just didn’t do a whole lot else and left little impact in his limited time. Vitolo replaced him at halftime.

Thomas Partey (5): Ran from box-to-box and had some nice moments. He made big interceptions on defense and wasn’t afraid to shoot (four attempts), but Leganés found ways around him in midfield.

Saúl (5.5): His defensive performance on the left side was a positive, but it was a pretty quiet day for him on the offensive end despite taking nearly 100 touches. His long ball delivery was pretty accurate though and he won several headers.

João Félix (4.5): Was active on the ball and tried to be the attacking engine in the second half, but the Portuguese couldn’t register a single shot as Leganés keyed in on him with fouls. He still hasn’t scored a league goal since September, and he hasn’t met the high expectations

Álvaro Morata (5): A very quiet performance for the streaky forward. He took three shots, one a volley from inside the box, but all easily saved by the keeper.

Subs:

Vitolo (4.5): The ex-Sevilla winger pushed the ball forward like he usually does and was downed in the box twice — though neither fall resulted in a penalty (probably fairly).

Héctor Herrera (5.5): He only played 28 minutes, but produced four key passes and was solid on his set piece deliveries

Šaponjić (3.5): The Serbian received his first league minutes and missed a big chance in stoppage time.
