Víctor Machín Pérez, known as Vitolo, is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Atlético Madrid mainly as a left-winger but also as a forward.

He began his career with Las Palmas before joining Sevilla in 2013, where he won the Europa League three times. He signed with Atlético Madrid in 2017, conquering the same competition in his first season and adding the subsequent Super Cup.

Vitolo won his first cap for Spain in 2015.

Vitolo joined Sevilla FC on 28 June 2013, after agreeing to a four-year contract. He made his debut in La Liga on 18 August by featuring the full 90 minutes in a 1–3 home loss to Atlético Madrid, and scored his first goal in the competition on 10 November, contributing to a 3–1 success at RCD Espanyol.

In his first season in Andalusia, Vitolo played 45 games all competitions comprised and scored eight times – this included four in 16 matches in the club's victorious run in the UEFA Europa League. On 12 March 2015 he scored the fastest-ever goal in the continental competition, finding the net after just 13 seconds to help to a 3–1 away win against fellow Spaniards Villarreal CF; he was surpassed on 15 September 2016 by Jan Sýkora from FC Slovan Liberec, who netted against Qarabağ FK at 10,69.

With three league goals in March 2015 – half of his total for the season up to then – Vitolo was voted La Liga Player of the Month. On 27 May, he assisted Carlos Bacca's winning goal as Sevilla retained their Europa League crown with a 3–2 victory over FC Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk in Warsaw.
