Atletico Madrid beat struggling Celta Vigo 2-0
Luis Suarez and Yannick Carrasco scored to seal a second league win of the season for Atletico Madrid on Saturday.
Celta Vigo 2-0 win in La Liga on Saturday.
Atletico Madrid returned to winning ways as Luis Suarez’s 150th LaLiga goal and Yannick Carrasco’s stoppage-
time header handed them a 2-0 win over Celta Vigo.
Atletico Madrid beat Celta Vigo and climb to fourth position, two points behind early leaders Real Madrid and
one ahead of Barcelona,
after the win. Celta, meanwhile, has managed only one win from their first six games and sit 13th.
This was a much-needed victory for Atletico after back-to-back goalless draws had dampened enthusiasm
following their 6-1 opening win against Granada.
Suarez made his debut that day, coming off the bench to score twice when Granada was already down and out,
but his early strike shaped this game against Celta until Yannick Carrasco headed in a second in injury-time.
Diego Simeone had kept Suarez and Costa apart by using one to substitute the other in each of Atletico’s first
three matches but he paired them together from the start at Balaidos, with Joao Felix on the bench.
