Luis Suarez Equals Falcao’s Record At Atletico Madrid

Luis Suarez Equals Falcao's Record At Atletico Madrid 5

Atletico Madrid player, Luis Suarez has matched Radamel Falcao’s scoring record for the club.

Suarez scored in the 20th minute against Getafe on Wednesday, glancing in Yannick Carrasco’s delivery for a strike that would prove to be the game’s only goal in a 1-0 victory for Atletico.

The Uruguayan’s goal ensured Diego Simeone’s 500th game in charge of Atletico would be victorious, with the capital club extending their lead on top of La Liga over city rivals Real Madrid.

For Suarez, it was his eighth league goal in 11 matches since joining Atletico from Barcelona this summer, equalling the mark set by Falcao in 2011 after the Colombia striker joined the club from Porto.

He could have easily had a ninth in the first half against Getafe, guiding the ball over the bar from 15 yards soon after scoring the opener.
