Atletico took the lead straight after halftime when substitute Llorente's cross was blocked but he capitalised on Sergio Ramos's rebound to fire home from close range.

Llorente came close to adding a second with a header that hit the top of the net and a shot saved by Sevilla keeper Marko Dmitrovic.

As in their last match, Atletico were reduced to 10 men in the 70th minute when defender Caglar Soyuncu, who had only been on the pitch for four minutes, was shown a red card for a tackle on Lucas Ocampos.
