Starting XI:

Oblak

Conceded a 20th minute goal after Cristian Tellos hit a sharp finish, but the keeper made crucial saves late in the second half to keep the game level, including a one-handed dive to prevent substitute Diego Lainez from scoring — 7.

Savić

Strong evening for him, and kept his passing simple. The center back’s tackles and clearances helped divert some dangerous Betis attacks — 7.

Giménez

Played aggressively, and used his physicality to keep players like Nabil Fekir in check. Hustled hard to get back on defense and made a sliding block when Betis launched forward on a late 3v2, though he whiffed on Álex Moreno’s assist to Tello — 8.

Hermoso

His passing from the left into space was a positive, but couldn't get many crosses into the box and was hooked after an hour — 6.

Trippier

Similar to Hermoso, the Englishman wasn't able to whip a cross into the box like he usually does and missed Marcos Llorente’s presence. But he was able to break lines with some of his passes upfield anyway before he exited the game with a back injury — 6.

Saúl

Was active on the right side early on in the match, making some promising runs and getting a shot on net after rising for a header. Made an occasional tackle or pass, but faded out of the game as time went on, even after Simeone changed formations — 5.

Herrera

Played over an hour and made some quality passes, completing them at a 90 percent success rate. Defensively, the Mexico international made three tackles to tie for the team lead. Vitolo replaced him in the 64th minute — 6.

Koke

Set the pace and direction of the attack with his passing, as per usual. His long balls found players like Trippier out wide, switching the point of attack and maintaining possession — 6.

Carrasco

Looked locked-in from start to finish, never shying away from taking players on or taking a crack at the net. His off-ball work put him in great positions against Betis’ defense. In the fifth minute, Carrasco showed his composure and put the team ahead with a calm finish into an empty net — 8.

Correa

Consistently quick on his feet, whether sticking a foot in to grab an interception or a soft touch to control his dribble. His running and creativity led to multiple chances, and Claudio Bravo stopped him twice in the final moments — 8.

Joāo Félix

Looked lively on the ball, especially with his pass to Correa to help set up the goal, but came down with an injury late in the first half. Limped into the locker room at half and was ultimately subbed off early in the second — 6.

Subs:

Torreira

Helped out defensively and floated around the middle to create some quick attacks, but couldn't a substantial second half impact after he replaced Félix — 5.

Lodi

Gave Atlético Madrid another outlet down the left and facilitated Carrasco’s move further forward. Helped to maintain possession with his passing after he entered for Hermoso — 5.

Vitolo

Played less than a half an hour in Herrera’s place but quickly found a rhythm, coming up with a shot and a key pass — 6.

Vrsaljko

Couldn't make much of an impact with his limited time on the field, though he could have nabbed a pre-assist in stoppage time — N/A.
