Atlético Madrid player ratings at Sevilla

Atlético trailed twice and lost again in what is becoming a disastrous league campaign.

Jan Oblak

Could do nothing for Ivan Rakitić’s seventh-minute screamer. Was not asked to do too much until the last few minutes when Lucas Ocampos drilled home the 88th-minute winner at the near post — 6.

Kieran Trippier

Returned to the side and slotted in at right wing-back, but not at his fittest. Not helped with the change of Llorente for De Paul and he didn’t get forward as he has so often done. Had issued with Papu Goméz on Sevilla’s left. Still a decent return to action for the Englishman — 6.

Geoffrey Kondogbia

Put at centre-back as a stop-gap measure and has impressed in the position. Another solid performance, and it’s a nice way for Diego Simeone to get another passer into the team without altering his midfield too much — 6.

Felipe

Much of Felipe’s value comes from his danger at set-pieces. Gave Atlético Madrid hope with a 33rd-minute equalizer. Solid display from the Brazilian — 7.

Mario Hermoso

Asked to play as more of a central midfielder than a central defender, which is good news because he continues to look suspect going backward — 6.

Yannick Carrasco

Looked like Atlético’s most dangerous player again. His ability to beat a man sets him apart, and when he can get the ball in space, he causes problems. Needs more end product, but that might be a structural issue opposed Carrasco’s problem — 7.

Marcos Llorente

Returned to midfield again after a stint at right-back. Looked energetic and had a couple of nice flashes in attack, but he had to be replaced after 40 minutes due to injury — 6.

Koke

Could have done better to close down Rakitić for the opening goal. Thomas Delaney leaped over him during the sequence that produced Ocampos’s winner. He needed to be more physical — 5.

Thomas Lemar

Another excellent delivery from a corner for Felipe’s goal. A hard-working performance, but Atlético’s team-wide struggles make everything more difficult and Lemar is a victim of that — 6.

Ángel Correa

Poor first half from the Argentine, whose unpredictability can hurt Atlético as much as it can help. This was a case of the former with a chaotic, sloppy first half performance. Removed at the break for Félix — 5.

Luis Suárez

He still has a skillset that few have when he can get on the ball, but he continues to struggle to work himself into the game. Another anonymous first half and had just a few touches in his 15 minutes on the field in the second half. His form is a massive question mark — 4.

Substitutions

Rodrigo De Paul

The Argentine came on for Llorente after 40 minutes. His driving runs from the middle helped Atlético. However, the team-wide uncertainty is affecting a very talented player — 6.

João Félix

Replaced Correa at half-time. Struggles to play with his back to goal, and constantly looking for frees that he doesn’t get lessens his influence. He has the kind of talent that nobody 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.

Matheus Cunha

Replaced Suárez after 56 minutes. Looked dangerous and lively when given a chance. His build-up play and work-rate are the most impressive features of his output — 6.
