Player Ratings: Hermoso winner nudges Atlético to win over Getafe

Advertisements

Oblak

Another match where the keeper was put in some tough positions, including facing two penalties in five minutes. There were no glaring errors from Oblak goals conceded, but he was still beaten three times – Borja Mayoral’s one-time shot in the 30th minute, and the two Enes Ünal penalties in the 37th and 42nd minutes. —3.5

Reinildo

Made his first start for Atlético Madrid. Timid in the first half, opting for short passes instead and failing to work the ball up the pitch. His limited crosses were off the mark. Defensively, he lost Mayoral for the opening goal. -4

Felipe

Quiet throughout the game up until the 58th minute, where he saw a red card for a dangerous high kick on Mauro Arambarri. He faces a multi-game suspension. -2

Savic

Played most of the match on a yellow after a mistimed tackle in the third minute. He cleared the ball well in the first half, which helped relieve pressure, but the Montenegrin was out of position on the Mayoral goal. —4.5

Llorente

Returned from injury. Llorente’s runs up the flank were vital early on for Atlético’s offense. His best moment came in the 27th minute where his darting run and cross resulted in Matheus Cunha’s goal. He also won the free kick that ultimately ended up on Mario Hermoso’s foot and won the match. —6

Lemar

Gave away the second Getafe penalty with an unlucky handball just inside the penalty area. Offensively, Lemar passed well and assisted Correa’s equalizer in the fourth minute of first half stoppage time. —6.5

Kondogbia

Was not able to use his physicality to dominate the midfield like he usually does. At times, he pressed higher than usual and Getafe’s quick passing took him out of the play. -4

headaches

Similar to Kondogbia, Koke failed to win his duels in the midfield and was frequently bypassed, unable to control the game for Atlético in any way. -4

Correa

Once again the Argentine showed his importance to the team, scoring a brace in the first half. His first goal on 20 minutes was a poke-in after a well-timed run into the area. The second came just before the half, where he floated into open space and headed the ball home at close range. He now has 10 league goals this season. —8

Cunha

Active offensively via his runs and his impressive dribbling. Scored after Llorente sent a low cross into the box and Lemar missed the initial shot. Called for a handball in the 37th minute, giving away Getafe’s first penalty. —6.5

Suárez

Drew and missed a penalty in the opening minutes, the spot kick well-saved by David Soria. Looked frustrated with his miss and the way the game was going. Was subbed off for Hermoso after Felipe’s red card. —4.5

Hermoso

Subbed on for Felipe to fill his hole in the defensive line and took advantage of his chance. He found himself unmarked on an 89th free kick and acrobatically struck the ball into the back of the net and win the match, his second game-winner in three weeks. —7

Vrsaljko

Came on for Correa in the 74th minute. Moved up the field well and added some offensive intent the team needed. -5

João Félix

Replaced Cunha and led the line on his own. His touch was just too heavy to have a shot on net minutes after coming on, but the Portuguese’s diving header at the back post set up Hermoso’s winner. —7

De Paul

Was just what the team needed in midfield. He took the free kick that Hermoso sent in behind Soria. —6.5

Herrera

Came on for Lemar in the 92nd minute. Couldn’t have much of an impact with such limited time. —N / A
