Atletico Madrid defeated Barcelona by 2-0

Barcelona fell to their first LaLiga loss of the campaign with a 2-0 reverse at Atletico Madrid in what could be Ronald Koeman’s final game.

Luis Suarez scored one and assisted another to earn Atletico Madrid a 2-0 win over Barcelona that heaps even more pressure on Blaugrana boss Ronald Koeman.

Barcelona had started well but Atletico were ahead on 23 minutes when Joao Felix spun away from Oscar Mingueza and played the ball to Suarez whose first time cushioned pass teed-up Lemar who scored high into the roof of Marc Andre ter-Stegen’s net.

It was Atletico’s all-time second most expensive signing scoring from a pass from the all-time highest – over 200m euros worth giving the home side the lead.

Gerard Pique and Sergio Busquets argued their way back towards the halfway line for the restart and it would not be the first time Barcelona looked helpless in the face of quick Atletico attack.

Coutinho flashed a shot just wide as Barcelona went for a rapid response but from another triangle – this time Yannick Carrasco to Felix to Suarez – the Uruguayan shooting just wide.

Joao Felix and Barca substitute Ansu Fati exchanged shots on target at either end in the latter stages but no further goals arrived in the Spanish capital, potentially bringing down the curtain on Koeman’s short-lived tenure.
