Barcelona, 9 February 2021 (dpa/MIA) – Luis Suarez was back in the goals but Atletico Madrid dropped two points at home drawing 2-2 with Celta Vigo in La Liga on Monday.
The visitors took the lead on 13 minutes when Santi Mina converted Hugo Mallo’s cross from the right.
The lead lasted until just before half time when Luis Suarez slid in Marcos Llorente’s cross to equalize.
Suarez put Atletico ahead five minutes into the second half. It was another first time finish from close range this time from a Renan Lodi’s volleyed cross from Geoffrey Kondogbia’s diagonal pass.
But Celta salvaged a point when on 90 minutes Augusto Solari crossed and Facundo Ferreyra scored from close range.
Suarez now has 16 goals this season in La Liga. But the draw means they go eight points clear at the top instead of 10.
