Madrid (AFP) – Luis Suarez beat Atletico Madrid’s 90-minute winner as they defeated 10 Arabes 2-1 on Sunday and returned to the top of La Liga over Real Madrid.
Marcos Llorente gave Atletico a lead at Mendisorasa shortly before half-time, diverting a strike from just outside the area.
Diego Simeone’s team controls the match when Arabes DF Victor Laguardia is sent off the hour after VAR’s review that the French cut down Thomas Lemar as he ran towards the goal. It looked like it was.
Florian Lejeune headed to the Arabes post before the magnificent own goal 84 minutes from Felipe threatened Atletico to take two important points.
However, Suarez secured Atletico’s fourth straight win in the last minute as Uruguay tapped in from close range after substitute João Felix scored the ball.
Atlético are two points behind Real Madrid and have two games against the defending champions.
Barcelona has prolonged a 13-point drift ahead of a trip to the underside of Huesca on late Sunday. Lionel Messi will return after missing a one-on-one home draw with Eibar in the middle of the week.
