Atlético see off Oviedo thanks to goals from Marcos Llorente and Pablo Barrios.

Jan Oblak

Oviedo only had one shot on target after 72 minutes and two in the whole game, with most of Oblak’s work being done under corners. He looked solid in that area. Busier nights lay ahead — 6.

Nahuel Molina

The recent World Cup winner played as a right-back with the license to push forward. That also allowed Llorente and Griezmann find spaces inside and further forward when Molina got the ball and Oviedo closed him down. A good return to action by the Argentine — 7.

Jose Giménez

A little loose with his passing and a little rash in his tackle in the first half, which saw him booked. A typical no-nonsense defensive display from him and he led Atlético Madrid in tackles attempted and tackles won — 7.

Axel Witsel

Played in the centre of a three-man defense. A tidy performance from the Belgian, but nothing spectacular. It’s what we have come to expect from the midfielder. Booked late for a tactical foul as Oviedo countered with menace — 6.

Mario Hermoso

Most passes attempted and most passes inside the final third for Atlético in the the first half. The confident, aggressive passer of the ball from yesteryear is back, and that might be a boon for Simeone. Forced off after 66 minutes through injury, we’ll see if it’s a serious one — 8.

Yannick Carrasco

Another sub-par performance from the Belgian. His dribbling is one of the only positives he brings to the table but he has struggled with that aspect of his game for some time now. Looks like a player low on confidence, and it’s unclear how he gets his groove back. Came off late on for Reguilón, who shored up the left side — 5.

Marcos Llorente

Pushed further forward than we have seen in some time. It resulted in one of his better open halves of football in some time. He lacked influence as Atlético didn’t commit as many bodies forward in the second half. Promising signs, though — 7.


Won the ball back six times in the first half, more than any other Atlético player. Replaced after an hour’s worth of football. Oviedo had a purple patch in the second half just before Koke was taken off and he was a little lost as the single defensive midfielder during that time. Otherwise, a good, steady performance from the captain — 7.

Thomas Lemar

Coughed the ball up early in the second half, which gifted Borja Bastón a chance to score, but he curled it wide. Got around the field well and linked play between attack and midfield well at times too but a so-so game from the Frenchman — 6.

Álvaro Morata

Even on Morata’s average days, he still gets through plenty of work. Same again against Oviedo, as he gave the home side’s defenders plenty to consider. Didn’t work out for him on the night. Replaced by Correa after 76 minutes — 6.

Antoine Griezmann

Griezmann is a class above many of his teammates so even on his off-nights, he can still be influential. Played a creative role again on Wednesday, popping the ball up to Marcos Llorente for the opener and covering loads of ground — 7.


Geoffrey Kondogbia

Replaced Koke after an hour. Defensive substitute from Diego Simeone and it did result in a drop in possession. Decision making questionable at times — 5.

Pablo Barrios

Came on for Lemar after an hour. Sat in beside Kondogbia at the base of midfield, pressing when necessary too. Energetic half an hour from the youngster and got himself his second goal in the Copa too after a lovely move. He looks like the real deal — 8.


Replaced Hermoso after 66 minutes. Ridiculous pass into a dangerous area saw Griezmann get himself booked late on in the game. A needless risk. Looks rusty having lost his place in the pecking order in recent weeks — 6.

Ángel Correa

Replaced Morata late on. His usual slippery self in the box, he made a good chance for Reguilón, who poked wide with his effort. Went one better later on as he put Barrios through on goal for the second of the game — 7.

Sergio Reguilón

Third appearance for Atlético having missed a long spell on the sidelines. Full of beans whenever he plays. Whether that translates into a long-term contribution remains to be seen, but he looks to have the kind of attacking flair Atlético have been missing from their wing-backs recently — 7.
