Atletico Madrid 2-2 Real Sociedad: Luis Suarez brace spares the blushes for the defending Champions

Luis Suarez-Atletico Madrid

Atletico Madrid did well to come back from two goals down to secure a 2-2 draw in the end against Real Sociedad in the Spanish La Liga league earlier tonight.

A second-half brace from Luis Suarez ensured that the home side came away with a point from the match after Alexander Sorloth and Alexander Isak had put the visitors 2-0 ahead.

Here at Anytime football, we look at the three major talking points from tonight’s contest.

Atletico continue to falter defensively

Diego Simeone’s teams are known for their well-disciplined approach and defensive solidarity.

However, Atletico Madrid are anything but that this season.

The Spanish giants came into this game on the back of a defeat against Liverpool in the Champions League and they conceded three goals in that game.

The capital club have now conceded twice against Real Sociedad and they will have to improve immensely at the back if they want to win trophies this season.

Luis Suarez has been a transfer masterstroke

The Uruguayan international signed for Atletico Madrid at the start of last season and he helped them win the Spanish league title last year.

The experienced forward chipped in with vital contributions during crucial stages of the season and he continues to deliver when his team needs him.

With the likes of Antoine Griezmann and Joao Felix struggling to make their mark, the former Barcelona striker once again stepped up to the plate and delivered when it mattered most.

Extraordinary start from Real Sociedad

The visitors were at the top of the table before today’s round of matches and they have shown that their position at the summit was not a fluke.

Real Sociedad produced an outstanding performance against Atletico Madrid and they could have easily come away with all three points on another day.

It is hard to see them winning the title eventually but La Real are in for a special season and it will be interesting to see if they can finish in the Champions League places in the end.
