Luis Suarez helps Atletico Madrid thrash Cadiz 4-2
Luis Suarez fired in two goals as a clinical Atletico Madrid thrashed Cadiz 4-2 away in an action-packed game on Sunday to march 10 points clear at the top of La Liga.
Suarez gave Atletico the lead in the 28th minute with a curling free-kick which was cancelled out by Cadiz forward Alvaro Negredo seven minutes later before Saul Niguez restored the visitors’ advantage moments before the break.
Cadiz had a strong penalty claim turned down on the stroke of halftime when Atletico’s Koke blocked the ball with his hand while on the ground but Atleti got a spot kick just after the break which Suarez converted for his 14th goal of the season.
Atletico have amassed an impressive 50 points at the halfway stage of the season.
