Luis Suarez led Atletico Madrid to another stunning turnaround on the road in LaLiga as they defeated Getafe by 2-1 on Tuesday.
Champions Atletico Madrid had scored a 99th-minute winner in their previous away match at Espanyol having trailed at half-time and required a repeat against their latest hosts.
It was the first time Getafe had scored against Atletico in 1,583 minutes of LaLiga football, ending Diego Simeone’s remarkable run of never conceding against his side’s neighbours in the league since taking charge of the club in December 2011.
Getafe played the final phase of the match with 10 men after Carles Alena was shown a straight red card in the 74th minute for raking his studs down the back of the leg of Atletico substitute Matheus Cunha.
The sending off galvanised the visitors and it took a superb double save from David Soria to prevent Angel Correa and then Suarez from equalising in 78th minute.
Suarez soon rifled past Soria and, after Oblak had to be alert to a close-range Enes Unal attempt, the Atletico Madrid number seven was there again with a header as the clock turned 90.
The victory took Atletico Madrid top of the standings on 14 points from six games, a point ahead of Real Madrid who have a game in hand, while Getafe are bottom with no points.
