Suárez knocked one home from a counterattack down the right wing, making the score 3 – 0 after 70 minutes. Two minutes later, he scored for Marsi Llorente’s goal, in the 85th minute he jumped to the overstretched center and sent the ball to the far post with a difficult position. At the set time, the Uruguayan gunner shot the stick and the ball managed to reach the goal by itself.
Suárez became the first Atlética player to score twice on his debut. He waited exactly a quarter of an hour for the premiere hit, thus imitating his first start for Liverpool, in which he needed only a minute more to score.

He changed the luck with Messi, the goalkeeper Sergio Asenjo caught the direction of the shot and reached the ball, but could not push it out. The Argentine star became the fourth player in history to score in 17 seasons in the La Liga.
