There was more than half an hour left in the game, when Daniel Orsato indicated that another change could take place at Atlético de Madrid. At that moment the fourth official raised the board and the player who was leaving was Luis Suárez. Total surprise. Atlético de Madrid’s top scorer this season was leaving the field in a veritable final… at Stamford Bridge.
In this way, the curse of Luis Suárez was going to continue in away games in the Champions League. Since 2015 when he scored in Rome against Barcelona that does not score a goal, and for now it seems that that bad streak is not going to break it in London.
A match in which the best version of the Uruguayan striker could not be seen. He was always very far from goal and was unable to hold the ball back to allow his team to advance lines in many sets of the match. He came out losing in most of the fights with the Chelsea defenders.
Despite everything, he starred in one of the controversial plays of the match. He fell after a fight with Zouma in the vicinity of the area, on television it was seen that the action was outside but neither the referee nor the VAR decided to point out anything about it.
