Made a couple of decent saves to deny Messi and Pique as he fought hard for his clean sheet.
Always aware of the potential threat of runners in behind, and displayed exemplary anticipation and tackling to snuff out a few dangerous moments.
Defended aggressively but smartly, doing a lot of dirty work at the back that did not go unnoticed by his coach.
Picked his moments to overlap well, and was a strong outlet for his side, in addition to his solid defensive work.
A rock at the back for the hosts, as he won everything in the air, and was quick to kill a number of attempted one-twos from the opposition.
Put in a solid and tireless shift in the middle but tired as the match wore on.
With all the defensive attention focused on Costa on the opposite side, the Turk was often allowed to drift forward unnoticed, and cause real problems for the fullbacks. However, he was lucky to escape a booking for a nasty stamp on Alves.
Put in a few good balls from corners and set pieces but from open play it did not quite happen for him.
One or two nice touches signalled a promising game early on, but it never took off from there, as he was on the periphery more often than not.
Not afraid to muscle with the centre-backs and fought to get himself to the end of many chances, but he never quite had that killer touch to send his side into the lead.
Like his opposite number Courtois, was good value for the clean sheet, pulling off some fine saves.
Added a few quality moments in the attacking third and, had his team-mates been on the same wavelength, he may well have registered an assist.
Pulled off some skullduggery with a few questionable plays, but he did not shy from confrontation and defended well when called upon.
Locked in on Diego Costa on several plays, and more than once, he prevented the dangerous striker from setting himself up for a shot. Also tested Courtois from distance.
Quick off the blocks to close down the red and white shirts in his vicinity, and prevented a few dangerous attacks from gaining momentum.
Took a rough tumble and tweaked his knee early in the first half and never recovered. Substituted at the interval for Messi.
Put under the cosh on a few occasions when Atletico ramped up the pressure, but was vital in his side asserting their style on the game in certain stretches. Positioned himself well and put in some good tackles.
Some quick passing set up a few Barca attacks down the flanks, though he hashed two decent shooting opportunities that fell his way.
Linked well with his team-mates, but his off-the-ball movement was not what it should have been at the apex of the Blaugrana attack.
Very smart in possession and whipped in a number of fine crosses that deserved to be attacked with more intent that his team-mates offered.
Though he moved threateningly off the ball, he never found the killer touch to fashion that one golden chance.
