Atlético Madrid player ratings at Getafe

Luis Suárez scored two late goals to win it for Atlético against struggling Getafe.

Jan Oblak

A series of mistakes led to Getafe’s first goal. Oblak came for a cross and fumbled it, and then failed to gather it at the second time of asking. When the ball was crossed back in and headed off the post, Oblak looked stunned as it bounced off him and over the line — 6.

Stefan Savić

Savić’s importance in Diego Simeone’s plans is not in question, but his increasing role on the ball is not ideal. Took too much time in possession and often tasked with starting attacks — 6.

Jose Giménez

Defended well and kept Jaime Mata and José Juan Macías quiet, but he talked himself into the book after a challenge by Mata on Oblak — 6.

Kieran Trippier

Put under pressure a number of times on the ball and did not look comfortable. Failed to make any progress going forward, and most of the passes he played to Llorente were not into space and not dangerous — 5.

Renan Lodi

Lasted an hour, but could have been hooked at half-time. Struggled going forward with a number of failed crosses and just out of step with his teammates coming out of defense — 4.

Yannick Carrasco

Played on the left, but Lodi was a wing-back when Atlético Madrid were attacking, leaving the Belgian a little lost — 5.

Héctor Herrera

Played as the deepest midfielder with Simeone’s other options in that position unavailable. Dropped into a back three during the build up and had a number of good passes deep in Getafe territory, but he struggled to really influence the game — 6.

Marcos Llorente

Getafe dealt well with Llorente. Just once did he break through on the right. He received the ball in dangerous areas, but had a blue jersey between him and the goal at all times. Tried to get involved more centrally but just suffocated and never got a chance to break through the heart of Getafe’s defence — 6.

Antoine Griezmann

Frustration has marked Griezmann’s return to Atlético. He played off Suárez, but had another anonymous performance save one good effort that sailed just over the crossbar — 4.

Luis Suárez

Struggles continue, despite the goals. His first touch has deserted him and he was booked in the first half for elbow to Djené’s face. Despite his poor half, he still had the best chance of the half when his volley from a back header was well-saved. Got more involved in the second half and hit the bar with an effort as a warning shot. After, he took down a Hermoso cross and buried it to level matters after 77 minutes— his second goal of the season. He scored the winner late on with a fine header. He is a pure killer, regardless of form or fitness

— 8.

Ángel Correa

Individually very good and always likely to break a tackle, but lack of association with teammates hurts. No end product either, which is part of wider Atlético issue. Had a really good chance that David Soria saved well. Continues to play well, but luck has deserted him for now — 8.

Substitutions

Mario Hermoso

A more solid option for Atlético at left-back as he tried to spring Carrasco a number of times on the left. He also delivered several crosses into the area of varying quality.

Rodrigo De Paul

Added another dimension to Atlético’s midfield and some much-needed energy. Always in a hurry, and technical enough to never look rushed.

Matheus Cunha

Added extra movement and danger in the penalty area and might have been part of the reason why Suárez found extra space in the penalty area for his equalizer and winner.

Šime Vrsaljko

Delivered an assist that was more hit-and-hope than anything clinical. A morale-boosting effort for a player who has fallen badly out of favour.
