Back after back spasms had sidelined him for a couple of games but he was broke in gently as he had very little to do. Came off his line quickly to narrow the angle for Guerra as Valladolid went close in the second period.
Looked as if he was a regular at the heart of the defence as he made umpteen clearances and played some excellent passes forward. Miranda may struggle to get back into the side.
Made a number of key tackles in defence and marked his performance with a well timed jump and header in the second half. Two lung-busting runs forward were almost rewarded too.
The weakest member of the Atletico backline, and it was no surprise that much of Valladolid's best moments came down the hosts' left. Rarely contributed going forward.
Involved plenty early on as he unsurprisingly got forward with some regularity. Continued to take up attacking positions throughout but was not always found.
Showed good pace to trouble the visitors' back line but final ball was disappointingly lacking. Substituted late on with Milan still to come this week.
Swept home from the edge of the area in the opening minutes before his well weighted pass forward sent Costa free for the second. Deservedly given a rest in the second half.
Not always involved but did show plenty of quality when he did get on the ball. Combined well with Costa in the first half but should have done better with Arda's cross in the second period.
A rock in front of his defence as he made some key tackles and kept the ball impressively with his passing game. A real threat from set-pieces, he headed against the crossbar in the second half.
Clever free kick routine saw him claim an assist for Garcia's goal and played some excellent passes from midfield. Dead ball delivery was typically threatening.
Expert finish made Marino look silly for the second goal, and though he was isolated for long periods, his strength and pace made him a real handful whenever he found himself in possession.
Could do little about Garcia or Godin's strikes, but rush of blood to the head saw him gift Costa yet another goal. Saved well from Godin in the second period.
Got forward well but failed to get the ball into the box enough. Defended well as he kept Turan and Insua fairly quiet.
Poor cross in the first half saw a rare opportunity for Valladolid wasted, and he was rarely seen in an attacking sense thereafter. Spent much of his afternoon chasing Juanfran.
Didn't have the pace to get across to Costa for the striker's early goal. Didn't do enough at the back to keep the hosts quiet for long.
Superb challenge denied Costa in the first half as the striker looked to go clear on goal. Held his own against the big forward.
The game almost passed him by as he failed to help Guerra make any impact on the home defence. Booked late on after a frustrating afternoon.
The best of Valladolid's players, especially in the second half. A number of through balls caused Atletico trouble, including a chipped ball that Guerra volleyed wide.
Miscontrolled on more than one occasion as he had a couple of chances that went begging. Substituted as the visitors chased the game.
The odd pass looked to trouble the hosts but he couldn't really have much of an impact on the match. Did well to see out the 90 minutes.
Never really got into the game as he was outmuscled regularly as he looked to create something from midfield. Replaced at the break.
Isolated in the first half but came into the match after the break, volleying his best chance wide after Rossi's ball over the top. Replaced once the match had gone.
