The hosts took the lead against Barcelona at the Wanda Metropolitano after just 23 minutes, with Thomas Lemar completing a neat move. Suarez then doubled Atletico’s lead just before halftime, scoring with his trademark finish against his former club.
The ex-Barcelona legend kept his celebrations low-key in honor of the club’s current struggles.
The Catalan giants are reportedly in debt to the tune of more than £1BILLION and have had to say goodbye to a number of other stars since Suarez’s departure, including Lionel Messi. As a result, the team is struggling on the pitch, with only 12 points from their first seven LaLiga games.
