Atletico Madrid started their new footballing season against Granada but all the eyes were on Luis Suarez, who surprisingly picked the Spanish side as his new destination despite him being linked with a move to Juventus. However, the Uruguayan impressed on his debut for the Los Rojiblancos, scoring and providing goals in just over twenty minutes of play.

Starting the match on the bench, Luis Suarez came on in the 70th minute of the game for Diego Costa, who opened the scoring in the game. And just a couple of minutes into his debut for the Spaniards, Luis Suarez provided an assist for Marcos Llorente, who slotted the ball past the Granada keeper to make it 4-0.

After setting up a goal, it was time for Luis Saurez to get one for himself and the 33-year-old did just that as Marcos Llorente returned the favour as the Uruguayan scored from his cross. Then in the added time, the former Barcelona man got his second on the night, as he slotted the rebound past the keeper after his initial shot came off the goal post.
