Starting XI Oblak — (5) It's hard to fault Oblak for all of Bayern Munich's goals. His defense left him in some compromising positions, which obviously frustrated him greatly on the way to a whopping four goals conceded. Trippier — (3) Looked dazed on the pitch. Kingsley Coman had a field day against Trippier, darting past him on more than one occasion and ultimately slotting in two for the German giants. Overall, a really poor match from the England captain.
Savić — (3) The defender got lucky when Niklas Süle hit the post early in the first half. With the ball at his feet, Savić often dribbled right into Bayern's pressure, which forced passes to float out of play and a loss of possession. Felipe — (5.5) Similar to Savić, the Brazilian was pressured when he had the ball, which didn't help his passing. However, his seven clearances alleviated some of the opposition onslaught. Lodi — (6.5) Made a strong effort to defend the left side with his tackling. Pushed forward and got involved with what little offense Atlético Madrid, as he sliced in a total of six crosses. Llorente — (4) Had a good dribble or two in the opening minutes of the match, but former rojiblanco Lucas Hernández quickly subdued him. Whenever Llorente looked to receive the ball and turn, Hernández left him no space and smothered him out of the game. Koke — (6.5) Tasked with facilitating the match and made the best with what he had. The captain made sure to keep possession and aid the buildup with his passing. Herrera — (4) Although he helped supply the flanks with accurate passes out wide, the Mexico midfielder lost the ball too easily, and one such instance created Bayern's second goal. Carrasco — (3.5) As usual, the Belgian wasn't fazed by the opponent's backline and took players on whenever he got the opportunity. But Süle stopped him more than once even as his efforts spurred some half-chances. The best chance Carrasco had came in the 64th minute when he received a João Félix pass and skied a shot. Suárez — (3) Ended the match with more calls offside than shots on target. João Félix — (5.5) The 20-year-old showed creative shimmers and linked the offense well with his quick passing. His ability to draw in defenders opened up some space that the team could not capitalize on. The Portuguese had the ball in the net via a volley minutes into the second half, but it was called back due to offside. Subs Correa — (4) Put on in a last-ditch effort to get some offense going. The Argentine hustled in his limited minutes, but didn't do anything notable. Vitolo — (4) Came on for Carrasco late with fifteen minutes left in the second half. Had a few touches on the ball, but did not get involved in the low-power attack. Lemar — (4) Replaced Llorente and made little impact in his 12 minutes. Torreira — (3) Picked up a yellow card over his 12 minutes on the field.
