A late attacking push wasn't enough to get an away win.

Starting XI:

Oblak

Wasn’t challenged extensively, but handled those situations well, including a save from an Enes Ünal just outside the six-yard box. On corners and distribution, the keeper was commanding and accurate with his passes. He’ll take the clean sheet. —7

Trippier

Always ready for a ball out wide, which opened up the field. Darted up the field multiple times and sent some dangerous yet unsuccessful crosses into the box when in possession. Defensively, Trippier matched up well against the dynamic Marc Cucurella and had a few solid tackles. —6

Savić

Took no chances, clearing the ball away on several occasions and keeping most of his passes simple. He won half a dozen headers and put in a foot to intercept the ball several times throughout the match. —7

Giménez

Complemented Savić’s short passing with precise long balls. His distribution found players like Kieran Trippier and Yannick Carrasco out wide, fast-tracking the attack. Defensively, the Uruguayan relieved pressure with his five clearances. —6

Hermoso

Connected with Carrasco on the left side, frequently exchanging give-and-go passes to set up a cross. His low, hard passes into the box set up some promising passages of play. Minutes before the defender was substituted, he stopped a Cucurella cross from reaching an open Carles Aleñá for what surely would’ve been a goal. —7

Llorente

Impressive hustle to track back on defense in the first half, stopping a Getafe counter attack. On the other end, Llorente desperately looked to score, forcing David Soria to come up with a key save, but the Spanish midfielder’s efforts couldn’t produce a goal. —7

Koke

Atlético Madrid’s captain applied pressure in midfield, with hard running and backtracking. Switched the play well, sending the ball out wide, but missed that final pass needed to break down the hosts’ compact defense. —5

Saúl

Struggled to get into the match. Couldn’t make much with the ball at his feet and made few efforts forward. Félix replaced him at the half. —4

Carrasco

Aggressively took on players throughout the game. Raced down the left side and caused problems with his crossing, though Allan Nyom’s strength eventually negated his efforts. Challenged Soria with two shots in the first half, one being a well-controlled volley. —7

Correa

Had trouble with ball control and lost possession too easily. When he was able to dribble, Getafe’s physical back line bodied him out of possession, and he didn’t operate as well in tight spaces as the game moved along. —5

Suárez

Quiet for most of the match, but came to life for the final push, connecting with his teammates and getting into open space. His best chance was a looping shot that beat Soria but bounced off the base of the post to deny Atlético the lead. —6

Subs:

Félix

Ignited the attack with quick movements and shooting. Looked to force the issue whenever he got the chance. His efforts almost resulted in a goal, but he had an open header called back because Llorente’s cross was out of bounds. Soria stopped him with a decent save later on. —7

Dembélé

Part of a 64th minute triple-change along with Thomas Lemar and Renan Lodi. He forced Soria to make an acrobatic save from a volley, and the Frenchman had an open header fly just wide. His ability to get in position to score was promising, but he lacked the end product. —7

Lemar

A pest on the left side, drifting back toward the middle. His fresh legs and decisive passing helped progress the ball, and he was dangerous. —6

Lodi

Pressed high, trying add into the attack. Took a hard tackle to the leg from Nyom that resulted in the Getafe defender’s 70th minute red card. —6
