Diego Simeone was nervous throughout the game last night (Tuesday) between Atletico Madrid and Getafe, but towards the end the nerves were especially evident on the champion coach. The Colchoneros came into the game against the city rival after finishing their last two games 0-0, with a team that has lost all its games so far. In the first half it looked very bad when Stefan Mitrovic put the hosts in the lead, as it was Hattafa's first goal against Atletico Madrid since November 2011. Almost a decade.



Luckily for the champion she has Luis Suarez. The Uruguayan was there to equalize (78) and also to score the winning goal a minute into extra time. Atletico Madrid are temporarily returning to the top, and Hattafa - they must find a solution after six rounds at the end they are still without points in La Liga.



This is not the first time Suarez has taken care to keep the points at Atletico.

In fact, according to a survey by the Catalan "Sport", the mighty striker is responsible for 26 points for his team since arriving - an astonishing figure by all accounts - 23 of which (out of 86) were last season and ensured the Colchoneros' sensational victory in the championship.

"He is no longer as fast as he used to be, he is not participating in Atletico Madrid's high pressure game as usual, but Luis Suarez is still deadly," the Marca game summary read. "The Uruguayan did not start the season well, but his extension is still an unusual thing."



Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone commented on his players' ability: "We are still at the beginning of the season, there are more situations the team has to deal with and difficulties we have to overcome. We did not look the way we wanted to look. The opponent made it very difficult for us "In a vulnerable situation. At the start of the game, what we were looking for was control, but we did not show sufficient intensity and speed. In the second half we played offensively. We are still waiting for our main players to reach their best ability."



"I'm happy with the result, of course," Suarez said at the conclusion.

"We fell behind but we knew how to come back with a lot of character, and more in the final minutes. I am convinced that the turnaround we achieved will also contribute to us in the future and shoot us with the energies."
