Luis Suarez breaks Ronaldo’s record as Atlético Madrid go eight points clear

Luis Suarez continued his brilliant start at Atletico Madrid, with a record-breaking brace in their 2-2 draw with Celta Vigo on Monday night.

The Uruguay striker struck just before half-time at the Wanda Metropolitano to make it 1-1, after the visitors had taken the lead through Santi Mina.

Suarez struck again early in the second half to give Diego Simeone’s men the lead.

The goals took Suarez’s goal tally for Atletico up to 16 in just 17 LaLiga appearances, since arriving from Barcelona last summer.

The 34-year-old is the first player to score 16 goals in his first 17 games for a team in the Spanish top-flight in the 21st century.

The previous best of 15 goals in the same number of matches was set by Cristiano Ronaldo during his stunning start to his successful spell at Real Madrid from Manchester United in 2009.

Atletico are now eight points clear of Barcelona and Real Madrid, with one outstanding game.
