Atletico Madrid

Ex-Liverpool Striker On Target In Atletico Win



Luis Suarez

Former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez played a big role for his club in their league clash with Atletico Madrid on Saturday night.

Luis Suarez plays his club football for Spanish La Liga giants Barcelona at the moment.

The Uruguayan international scored one of the goals as Barcelona moved a step closer to their quest of retaining the Spanish La Liga crown they won in the last campaign with a 2-0 victory over Atletico Madrid in their league meeting at the Nou Camp on Saturday night.

Atletico Madrid played the majority of the game with 10 men after star striker Diego Costa was given his matching orders in the 28th minute after his rant towards the match officials especially the centre referee.

In the absence of Diego Costa, Atletico Madrid battled well to keep the scoreline at goalless until Luis Suarez produced a fine finish from outside the box to give Barcelona the lead in the 85th minute.

Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi added a second goal for the Catalans one minute later to secure the win that could have sealed another league title for the Nou Camp outfit.

The 2-0 victory over 10-man Atletico lifted Barcelona eleven points clear of their opponents at the top of the Spanish La Liga table.
