Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona 1-0 Saul Niguez
Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona 1-1 Luis Suarez
Barcelona’s unbeaten run against Atletico Madrid and Diego Simeone in LaLiga continued with Luis Suarez’s late equaliser on Saturday.
Diego Simeone’s winless run against Barcelona in LaLiga continued as Luis Suarez’s late equaliser held Atletico Madrid to a 1-1 draw at the Wanda Metropolitano.
Atletico have now not won in their last 15 league meetings with Barca – a run that stretches back to February 2010, almost two years prior to Simeone’s appointment.
It appeared as though that miserable streak would finally end on Saturday, as Saul Niguez’s stylish first-half strike looked to have set up a victory for the hosts over a Barca team that had won its first seven matches this term.
But leaders Barca built momentum in the second half, with Lionel Messi striking the post and spurning further chances before the leveller deservedly arrived.
Suarez, marginalised in the first half but much improved after the break, stooped to meet Sergi Roberto’s cross from the right and headed down past Jan Oblak with eight minutes remaining.
The visitors pushed for a winner, but Atleti held firm to ensure Ernesto Valverde’s men failed to win in LaLiga for the first time this season. Their advantage over Real Madrid stands at five points.
