Atletico Madrid 2-0 Barcelona: Player ratings

- Advertisement -

First half goals from Thomas Lemar and Luis Suarez gave Atletico Madrid a 2-0 win over Barcelona on Saturday night, as Los Rojiblancos move up to second in La Liga.

The visitors settled into the game quickly, boasting the lion’s share of possession in the early stages. It was Diego Simeone’s side, however, that broke the deadlock with a razor sharp move in the 24th minute. Joao Felix opened up the pitch with a stunning touch before finding Luis Suarez, who in turn played through Thomas Lemar to fire past Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

The lead was doubled on the brink of half-time by Suarez himself, bagging his first goal against his former employers. Following a breakaway move, Lemar played a measured ball into the path of the Uruguayan, who showed superb composure to take his time before clinically finding the bottom corner.

A change of system helped La Blaugrana look brighter and more creative after the interval, although a composed and mature Atleti side were more than comfortable to remain firm and see out a well-earned 2-0 victory. The win moves the hosts up to second in the La Liga table, while Barcelona sit ninth having suffered their first league defeat of the season.
