LaLiga: Luis Suarez asks for forgiveness after scoring against Barcelona

Atletico Madrid striker, Luis Suarez, pressed his hands together in a gesture asking for forgiveness after scoring against Barcelona in a LaLiga fixture on Saturday.

It was Suarez’s first goal against his former employers since he left in the summer of 2020.

The Uruguayan found the back of the net in the first half to put Atletico 2-0 up.

But Suarez remained respectful, refusing to celebrate even as his new teammates mobbed him in jubilation.

Saturday’s match was the second time Suarez played against Barcelona since he was forced out by manager Ronald Koeman.

A positive Covid-19 test robbed him of the chance to play against the Catalans in the first league fixture of last season, while he drew a blank in May’s 0-0 draw.

This time, though, he was on target, picking up on a sumptuous pass from Thomas Lemar – who had opened the scoring at the Wanda Metropolitano – and firing home to double Atleti’s lead.
