Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez was largely anonymous as his Atletico Madrid side lost 2-0 to Liverpool in their latest meeting in the Champions League. The two teams met in a Group B clash at Anfield on Wednesday night and it was Liverpool who ran out 2-0 winners to complete the double over the Spanish champions.
By the time of his sending off, Griezmann had scored two goals to cancel out the Liverpool strikes from in-form Mohamed Salah and Naby Keita for a 2-2 scoreline. Salah then scored his second goal of the game from the penalty spot for a 3-2 win for Liverpool as the Premier League title contenders made the most of their numerical advantage. Salah had the opportunity to score from the penalty spot after Atletico Madrid defender Mario Hermoso fouled Diogo Jota in the box. Luis Suarez started the game on the bench and he was introduced into the game in the second half.
Luis Suarez started the second Champions League meeting between Atletico Madrid and Liverpool this season as he returned to his former hunting ground, Anfield. He was largely ineffective as Liverpool beat Atletico Madrid 2-0 at home to book their place in the knockout stage as Group B winners. Atletico Madrid ended the game with ten men after Felipe was sent off on 36 minutes.
Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez has now returned to Anfield twice since he left in 2014 and he has seen his teams concede a total of six goals without scoring any. He lost 4-0 with Barcelona two years ago. Suarez spent 59 minutes on the pitch before being replaced by Mexican star Hector Herrera.
