Luiz Suarez makes history on Atletico Madrid debut with brace and assist off the bench

The 33-year-old did not need much time to show he can play a key role for the Rojiblancos after coming off the bench against Granada
Luis Suarez made an immediate impact at Atletico Madrid by scoring two and setting up another as they trounced Granada 6-1 on Sunday.

The striker joined Diego Simeone’s side from Barcelona in a €6 million (£5.5m/$7m) deal on Thursday after a move to Juventus fell through..


The 33-year-old came off the bench to make his debut for Atleti when he replaced Diego Costa in the 70th minute with his side 3-0 up.

The Uruguay international needed less than two minutes to contribute to the scoring as he set up Marcos Llorente to make it 4-0, knocking it on for the midfielder to slot home.

Suarez then seemed to have won a penalty for the Rojiblancos, but a VAR check saw the decision overturned. But he would follow that up by netting his first goal for his new club when he rose to meet a cross from Llorente and nodded past Rui Silva.

He then scored a second deep in injury time, finishing after playing a one-two with fellow substitute Vitolo.

Suarez is now the first Atletico player to score and assist on his debut in the 21st century, and the first debutant to net a double for the club this century as well.
