Uruguay striker Luis Suarez has scored a lot of important goals for Atletico Madrid in the Spanish top flight since his transfer to the capital last summer and he scored two more during the re-arranged league match at Eibar on Thursday night.

Luis Suarez scored the first of his two goals on 40 minutes. Atletico Madrid left it late to take all three points after Luis Suarez won and scored the penalty that gave the leaders all the three points. Luis Suarez was fouled by AnaitzArbilla with one minute left on the clock before he produced a cheeky finish from the resulting penalty to give Atletico Madrid all three points.
