Suarez extends impressive La Liga feat as Atletico scoring run continues

Luis Suarez, Atletico Madrid, Champions League 2020-21

Luis Suarez claimed his 29th La Liga scalp on Saturday as the veteran Atletico Madrid forward showed once more that his instincts around the net remain as sharp as ever.

And it proved a routine evening for Diego Simeone's men, as Felix hit two goals to take his league tally to five, whileSuarez and Marco Llorente also netted to down the visitors 4-0.

Suarez's strike was Atletico's third, coming just after half time as the striker converted in typical fashion from close range.

He has long been the scourge of La Liga defences since joining Barcelona from Liverpool in 2014, and now boasts another victim in the Spanish top flight.

Cadiz became the 29th team to concede from Suarez in his six years in Spain, out of a possible total of 29, although despite defeat the newcomers remain in sixth place thanks to their positive start to the season.

The forward's strike-rate also stands out as he continues to show his ruthless side in front of goal.Saturday's goal took him to five for the season in La Liga, tying with Felix as the division's top scorer so far.

Those strikes have come from just eight shots on target, moreover; in comparison, former team-mate Lionel Messi has needed no less than 16 to reach his current league tally of three, with two of those coming from the penalty spot.

Suarez's attentions now turn to international duty, with Uruguay taking on Colombia and Brazil in their upcoming World Cup qualifiers.

When he returns to club duty, however, a rather special reunion is on the cards.Atletico host none other than Barcelona in their first game back from the break, in a LaLiga clash scheduled for November 21.
