Luis Suárez pulverizes the comparison with Morata and Costa

The Uruguayan has scored the same league goals with Atlético as the Spanish, but has only needed 23 games. He also has more than Morata and Costa together in 19-20.


Luis Suárez settled his scoring drought in the derby and has already linked two games scoring. The gunman shows his reliability with numbers that allow Atleti to fight for the League and him, for the top scorer. Against Athletic he scored his 18th goal and has already equaled those scored by Morata in the competition as a rojiblanco. The Uruguayan can boast, yes, of having done it in less than half the games, 23 times 49. Costa, in this last stage of two full seasons and another two half, stayed at 12 in 61 league games.

More than Morata and Costa together

The other comparison that the former Barça player has blown up also has to do with the past year. The 19-20 strikers, Morata and Diego Costa, scored 17 goals in the League, twelve and five respectively. Suárez, with twelve days ahead, has already exceeded the sum of both. The team has 50 goals today and last year, at this point, it barely counted 29.

A '9' of decisive goals

The goals of the Uruguayan are also usually synonymous with points for Atlético, usually of triumph. It could be said that Suárez is a talisman, because when he scores, the team does not lose and almost always wins (in 13 games with a goal, 11 wins and two draws), but in reality he is a decisive player. On the 9th he added his fourth winner of this League against Athletic, as were those who broke ties against Eibar, Alavés and Getafe. As @atletico_stats remembers, no one has delivered as many winning shots as him. The goals of the striker can be directly translated into 15 points for Atleti (three against Eibar; two with Athletic, Alavés, Getafe, Elche and Cádiz; and one with Celta and Real Madrid). In this sense, he is the most decisive footballer in the League.

The owner of the penalties

On the other hand, Atlético has found in Suárez the solution to an old problem: penalties. Simeone had been without a reliable pitcher for years and the Uruguayan has taken the step forward. He has scored the three that he has launched, in Ipurua, in Carranza and this Wednesday in the Metropolitan. In fact, he has also been encouraged by fouls. In Cádiz he scored one and against Levante another crashed in the squad. Suarez has proven to be a resourceful forward.
