Suárez, the same as at 27

“Luis Suárez, with 50 years, will score two goals and his team will win,” Simeone confessed to AS last July. And as if agreeing with him, Luis Suárez blows the powder from his boots like someone who breathes. Seven times in 12 games, El Pistolero has already pulled his trigger. Seven times in 12 games this 21-22. Against Real, on Sunday, he fulfilled his 50th game with Atleti and blew out those candles with another double, the second of the season. 28 goals have been since the rojiblanca was donned for the first time, that Atlético-Granada of the 20-21 with which it was released. By the way, also with a doublet. The 28-goal score in his first 50 games equals his best club start ever. Like when the years I was not 34 but 27.

Because if he scored 25 goals in his first 50 games with Ajax (2007) and 20 were at Liverpool (2010), he did 28 when donning the Barcelona shirt (2014) and 28 are with Atleti, seven years later. When he arrived at Atleti it was said that he was older, with knee problems, that he would never be Barça’s Suárez. And he may not have that speed, that physical, but Simeone embraced his signing with that in his head. The number of Suárez that counts is not in his ID but in his account of his goals. He is already second in the top scorer’s table, tied to Oyarzabal, three behind Benzema.

Only behind Falcao and Salva Ballesta

Milan in Champions; Villarreal, Getafe (2), Barça and Real (2) have succumbed to their shots in the League. Competition in which last season was key to achieving the title and in which, this season, adds six goals (and an assist) in 571 ‘, six in 16 shots. Only Falcao and Salva Ballesta, in the 21st century, achieved more goals than the Uruguayan in their first 50 games at Atlético, according @atletico_stats. The first achieved 36, the second, 30. Legends such as Griezmann (24), Forlán (21), Torres, Agüero and Costa (12) did not reach the figure that the Uruguayan already has. A Suarez that warns. “Every time I understand myself better with Griezmann and João”he said after the match against Real. Still wrapped in gunpowder.
