Still living with the memories of his sudden removal from Barcelona's 2020/2021 squad list by Dutch manager Ronald Koeman, the 2021/2022 La Liga first game against Barcelona was indeed a payback time for the manager as Atletico Madrid striker Luis Suarez mimicked the manager after he netted his first goal for Atletico Madrid in the Wanda Metropolitan Stadium, to remind everyone of his forgotten past.
Stepping into the game, Diego Simeone's boys were intent on taking the lead in their home, as they made no mistake in confronting their opponent strength to strength, with physicality being the decider of the game and a well-planned combination of Luis Suarez and Thomas Lemar, the architect of the ruins caused to Barcelona in the Wanda Metropolitan Stadium.
A well-created pass by Thomas Lemar to Luis Suarez who could do nothing but put the ball past Ter Stergen in the 43rd minute, to give Atletico Madrid the second goal and of course mimicking Ronald Koeman's call in the early 2020/2021 season which sent him packing in the team.
