Luis Suarez is on his way home Yannick Carrascoto give the exact free kick Atletico Madrid a narrow 1-0 victory over Getafe.
Meanwhile in Catalonia, his former club Barcelona struggling in LaLiga Santander in this first piece of the season.
In 11 matches, Suarez has scored as many goals as in the 2019/20 campaign for the Blaugrana.
Diego Simeone last summer needed a goal scorer with clinical touch and he found one in the Uruguay International.
If there is a Atletico player who has stood out this season, then it is Yannick Carrasco and he registers another aid against Getafe.
It took Carrasco some time to adjust to this new Atletico Madrid after being loaned back from China and this season his job paid dividends.
Marcos Llorente is another player who stood out in 2020 and appeared in most positions on the field throughout the calendar year.
With Kieran Trippier banned due to a commitment issue, Sime Vrsaljko started there and then it was Llorente which took the Croatian referee’s place on the field, and again delivered a solid performance for Los Rojiblancos.

It remains to be seen whether the new calendar year will be the springboard Felix rediscovered its form.
Atletico finished the game with all four of their centers on the field in their effort to keep another clean sheet.
Jose Maria Gimenez played at fullback, with Mario Hermoso left back and Stefan Savic and Felipe in their natural position.
