    3.00

    Beto

    Could not be made responsible for either of Atleti's goals, as the shot-stopper was defeated by two world-class finishes.

  • Alberto
    10
    2
    3.50

    Alberto

    An impressive performance from the young full-back, who got forward well and set up Navas' strike with a great low cross.

  • Botía
    4
    14
    1.50

    Botía Flop of the Match

    Failed to keep hold of Costa as he was turned for the first goal, and was equally poorly placed for the second. A night to forget.

  • Coke

    8
    2.50

    Coke

    A quiet game for the wide man, who broke forward on occasion but struggled to drag his side out of an impossible situation.

  • Federico Julián Fazio
    7
    8
    1.50

    Federico Julián Fazio

    Was rather lucky not to cost his side a third goal when his tackle put Costa clean through. Struggled with the mobility of Atleti's attacking duo.

  • Geoffrey Kondogbia
    2
    15
    1.50

    Geoffrey Kondogbia

    Did not make enough impact in midfield, sitting back as Sevilla's attack was too often messy and direct. Earned Sevilla's second red late on.

  • Gary Medel
    5
    19
    1.50

    Gary Medel

    As busy and brutal in the middle of the park as ever, his tackling ensuring that Tiago's match would end early. Squandered a great chance to keep Sevilla in the match at 1-0.

  • Ivan Rakitic
    33
    5
    3.00

    Ivan Rakitic

    Always busy and a presence on the ball for Sevilla, arrived well late into the area, but wasted more than a few set-pieces too.

  • Jesús Navas González
    39
    4
    4.00

    Jesús Navas González

    One of the best in the home line-up, tirelessly worked to break down Atletico's defence and was rewarded with a great effort.

  • Reyes
    9
    8
    3.00

    Reyes

    Needed to show more from set-pieces, as Atletico were let off the hook at corners and free kicks. Will be disappointed with a subdued display.

  • Negredo
    10
    9
    2.50

    Negredo

    Far too anonymous throughout the game, needed to impose himself up front but ended fading into the shadows. More involved after half time, but did not take chances.

Substitutions

  • Cicinho
    7
    7

    Cicinho

    Given 20 minutes at the end, his most notable contribution almost ripping the shirt off Costa's back by the corner flag.

  • Manu Del Moral
    8
    6
    3.00

    Manu Del Moral

    Entered for Reyes at half time, and had one excellent chance that went straight at the keeper.

  • Thibaut Courtois
    32
    4
    3.00

    Thibaut Courtois

    Came up with a couple of excellent saves to ensure that his team would hold on to make the final.

  • Filipe Luis
    22
    3
    3.00

    Filipe Luis

    Struggled to track Navas as the forward stole the show for the hosts, but did his best to keep the left-hand side quiet.

  • Juanfran
    11
    9
    2.50

    Juanfran

    Surprisingly given an uncomfortable time by the rookie Moreno, stretched out wide and out of position for Sevilla's solitary goal.

  • Miranda
    18
    4
    3.00

    Miranda

    Looked comfortable at the back for the vast majority of the match, although as Sevilla pressed harder towards the end a few cracks began to appear.

  • Cata Díaz
    12
    7
    3.00

    Cata Díaz

    A typically rustic, no-nonsense display from 'Cata'. Almost conceded a penalty with a brutal hit early in the second half, but never shied away from confrontation.

  • Arda Turan
    30
    5
    3.00

    Arda Turan

    A solid stint from the midfielder, who ran tirelessly harassing Sevilla before being sacrificed in the second half.

  • Gabi
    16
    3
    3.00

    Gabi

    Was somewhat overwhelmed by the biting presence of 'Pitbull' Medel opposite, taking his fair share of hits before breathing easier when the Chilean left early.

  • Raúl García
    14
    4
    3.00

    Raúl García

    Started brightly, combining well with Falcao and Costa up front, but was guilty of losing possession on occasion and was eventually subbed.

  • Tiago
    10
    7

    Tiago

    Saw his game ended in the first half, failing to recover from a strong tackle by Medel.

  • Diego Costa
    68
    13
    4.00

    Diego Costa Top of the Match

    The Brazilian simply cannot do anything wrong in the Copa del Rey. Went top scorer with his seventh of the competition, and also set up Falcao expertly.

  • Radamel Falcao
    71
    5
    3.50

    Radamel Falcao

    It was not the Santa Marta native's most explosive game, but he came up when needed to start and finish a fantastic move, putting the game out of reach.

Substitutions

  • Cristian Rodríguez
    16
    6

    Cristian Rodríguez

    Had few chances to show his talent off the bench as Atletico retreated into their own half at the end.

  • Koke
    12
    3

    Koke

    A late change for the Colchoneros as they sought to see the game off.

  • Mario Suárez

    3.00

    Mario Suárez

    Thrown into the action early thanks to Tiago's injury, and held his own.
