Luis Suarez scored a second half brace as Atletico Madrid came from two goals down to draw 2-2 at home against Spanish League leaders Real Sociedad on Sunday.

Imanol Alguacil’s Sociedad took an early lead when Swedish striker Alexander Isak set up Alexander Sorloth in the seventh minute. Isak got on the scoresheet himself three minutes after half-time with a clinical finish from a set piece.

However, Suarez rose to meet a pinpoint cross from Joao Felix around the hour mark to inspire the home fans inside the packed Wanda Metropolitano.

The Uruguayan completed the comeback for the champions when he was fouled in the area 13 minutes from time and once the penalty was ratified by VAR, converted it with ease.

“The feeling is that we left two points on the pitch. It’s one point that doesn’t taste good,” Suarez told reporters. “We played at home and we have to be stronger. La Liga is very strong and we need to go out there with more attention to detail.”

In Milan, Juventus snatched a last-gasp 1-1 draw at champions Inter in Serie A after Argentine forward Paulo Dybala scored a penalty following a VAR intervention.

Massimiliano Allegri’s side travelled to Milan in fine form having won their previous six games in all competitions, but soon fell behind as Inter striker Edin Dzeko fired home after Hakan Calhanoglu’s shot had hit the post in the 17th minute.

In Marseille, Ligue 1 leaders Paris St Germain dropped two points as they were held to a 0-0 stalemate at bitter rivals Olympique de Marseille after playing more than half an hour with 10 men amid minor crowd trouble.
