Uruguayan Luis Suarez, Atletico Madrid striker, scored a deadly goal that led the Rojiblancos to beat Deportivo Alaves 2-1, on Sunday, in the 17th round of La Liga.

Luis Suarez’s ninth goal in La Liga this season is topping the list of scorers, equal to Gerard Moreno (Villarreal) and Iago Aspas (Celta Vigo).

According to the “Opta” statistics network, Suarez contributed 11 goals after his first 12 matches in the 2020-2021 La Liga, where he scored 9 goals and scored 2.

The network stated that “this start is the best for any player in the Atletico shirt during the 21st century.”

And it indicated that the former Barcelona star surpassed Colombian Radamel Falcao, who contributed 10 goals only during the same period, scoring 9 goals and making one goal.

It is worth noting that Luis Suarez joined Atlético Madrid last summer after Barcelona decided to lay off his services.
