Atlético de Madrid beat Granada by six goals to one in the Wanda Metropolitano. A spectacular start to the season for Simeone’s team. Luis Suárez makes a double in his debut with Atlético. In twenty minutes, the Uruguayan scored two goals, assisted Marcos Llorente to score the fourth goal and a penalty canceled by VAR.
After a few convulsive weeks for the Uruguayan, Luis Suárez is an Atlético de Madrid player and it seems that the former Blaugrana’s decision to remain in LaLiga is the right one. He could not have had a better debut against the rojiblancos fans by scoring two goals and demonstrating his skill and control of the ball. Without an audience in the stands, as a preventive measure to avoid the spread of the coronavirus, the mattress fans cheered the Uruguayan and praised him as the new star of the team.
Luis Suárez makes a double in his debut with Atlético
With the match already resolved, Simeone decided to make changes in the 70th minute of the match. The most anticipated change was that of Suárez who entered through another of the team’s stars, Diego Costa. The striker scored his first goal with a header and shortly after he scored his second goal against a disoriented and dejected Granada, which leaves the top of the competition.
In addition, together with Suárez, Thomas Partey and Marcos Llorente also took the field. Llorente scored the fourth goal for Atlético de Madrid thanks to the assistance of Suárez. Diego Costa, Correa and Joao Félix also scored against Granada.
The Barça thrashes to the Villarreal
For its part, Barcelona has also had a spectacular start to the season by beating Villarreal by four goals to zero at a misplaced, imprecise and practically no scoring opportunities. Suárez’s former team showed that the setbacks experienced with Setién are overcome. Koeman is going to give a lot to talk about and above all he is going to make Barça shine. The 2020/2021 season is more exciting than ever.
