Luis Suárez is still goal

Luis Suárez is still goal

Beyond the gall and resentment that the draw in Valencia left in Cholo, a certainty: that Luis Suárez is still the goal. Before the cold night fell on the rojiblancos, the Uruguayan opened the scoring for the rojiblancos in Mestalla. Because there are things, or rather players, on which the age of the DNI does not weigh. They only know about goals. They shake them and they fall off their boots, alone. Footballers of those differentials. Like Suarez. Simeone knows it well. That is why in his eleven the charrúa does not usually miss the beginning. Because it is the certainty facing the opposite goal. The goal.
Suárez scored his goal number seven in the league against Valencia. Only Benzema (10) takes more, after thirteen days. The Uruguayan ties with Vinicius and Raúl de Tomás in a ranking, that of the top scorer, who always carries his name above, since he signed for Barcelona in 2014. Suárez dominates the goal at Atlético by a distance. Griezmann, with 5, is second in the table. In third place is Correa, with three, while Carrasco and Lemar add two.
After a third of the season, what Simeone said last summer in an interview with AS is still valid, that “Suárez, at fifty years old, will score goals and his team will win.” Last season was decisive, with 21, for the rojiblancos to win the league title. There were those who said that he was older (35 years ago in January), than to see his knees, but Suárez arrived at Atleti and continued doing what he did not stop doing at Barça (where he is the third highest scorer in the history of the club) , in Liverpool and Uruguay, score goals. At the moment, his numbers are in line with those of his first year with the rojiblanca. If he continues at this rate, he will match 21 from last season. His average is 0.5 per game. He will lack the speed of before, the spark of youth, but there is something undoubted: he always lurks in the area. And his gunpowder is never wet.
