Last update on.From European Football
Michel, Getafe coach, said that when the ball fell towards Suarez, everyone knew what was happening.

Luis Suarez scored 2 goals late on as Atletico Madrid, La Liga champions, came back from behind to defeat Getafe.

Stefan Mitrovic's header landed on the post, and it was Getafe’s first goal against Atleti since 2011.

This was the first time that they had managed to get in 20 meetings with Atletico since Diego Simeone took over.

Carles Alena was sent to Getafe, and Suarez scored two more goals as the visitors remained unbeaten.

He first controlled Mario Hermoso’s pass, before grabbing the ball with his left foot and scoring the equaliser. He crossed Sime Vrsaljko in the final minute.

Suarez, who scored only once in six previous games, stated: "Every top-level player must learn to accept criticism. But what I do is not give up. I won't be discouraged by criticism.

"Above all, I'm happy for the circumstances of this game and that we were able to turn the scoreline around after.

"We need to improve and fix a few things that aren't working well, but things will get better as the season has just begun."

Atletico is one point ahead Real Madrid, who are a game behind, at the top La Liga.
