Celta Vigo stunned the Vicente Calderón on Wednesday night, knocking Atlético Madrid out of the Copa del Rey at the quarter-final stage with a deserved 3-2 win.
Goals from Antoine Griezmann and substitute Ángel Correa were not enough for Diego Simeone’s side, as a stunner from John Guidetti and two goals from Pablo Hernández capped a memorable night for the visitors.
Read on to see how we rated the players:
Miguel Ángel Moyà – 4
Although not solely to blame for any of the goals, the lack of security with him in goal is clear for all to see. Looked very rusty, and doesn’t command his box or dominate in the air like Oblak does.
Juanfran – 5
Made the rare forray forward, but for his standards he was almost absent tonight. Lack of energy tonight was noticeable, not just from him but the whole team.
Diego Godín – 5
The whole defence were poor tonight, and he was no different. Somebody needed to take control of the situation for both Celta’s first and third goals, but nobody did and we were punished.
José María Giménez – 4
We disagree with those who have said that his form has dropped this year (just look at the numbers), but he was very poor tonight. Caught sleeping on a few occasions, particularly the third goal which he takes blame for.
Filipe Luís – 4
He’s had a good run of form lately, but just didn’t look switched on tonight. Made a fairly bright start but tired quickly and struggled against Orellana. Probably needs a rest.
Gabi – 5
Not his best game. Reckless and times, poor with set-piece delivery, and struggled against the impressive midfield of Pablo and Radoja. He also could do with a rest ahead of big games to come.
Saúl Ñíguez – 6
Excellent first half, but made a mistake for the second goal that proved to be costly. Still, he was everywhere for much of the opening period, and nearly scored a memorable individual goal. Will learn from this match, great to see the progress he is making.
Koke – 4
Too many times this season, we’ve been criticial of Koke for not having enough impact. Tonight was another of those games, his impact minimal after the first 20 minutes or so. Would love to see him in Gabi’s position.
Yannick Carrasco – 5
Had a big hand in the equalising goal with his shot that was parried to Griezmann, but he was frustrating on the whole. Often guilty of making the wrong decision or holding onto the ball for too long. Not at the level he was earlier in the season.
Antoine Griezmann – 5
Scored the equaliser, but was very under-par in general play. Lots of misplaced passes, losses of possession and poor touches. Need him back at his brilliant best, as he is our only real goal threat most of the time.
Luciano Vietto – 4
Going through a real difficult spell at the moment. Had two good chances in the second half, but both times side-footed them straight at Sergio. Confidence is low, but he looks a shadow of the player that tore us apart at the Calderón last season.
Ángel Correa – 7 (Man of the match)
The only player who really looked like he wanted to win tonight. Very unlucky to hit the crossbar just after Guidetti’s goal, but he continued fighting and scored a stunning consolation goal late on. Two steps ahead of the rest of his teammates during his time on the pitch.
Óliver Torres – 6
Made some nice touches, and gave us a small reminder of the talent he has in abundance. Would be a shame to see him leave, although you can’t really blame him given the position he’s in…
