The defending champions secured a comfortable win over the Catalan giants to join Real Madrid at the top of the table.

The Wanda Metropolitano was fully packed for the first time in a while on Saturday evening, and the majority of the fans got what they came for as Atletico Madrid eased past FC Barcelona.

Luis Suarez came back to haunt Barcelona as he had a hand in both of Atletico’s goals. The striker set up Thomas Lemar for the opener halfway through the first half before getting on the scoresheet himself moments before the break, finishing off a fantastic counter-attack.

Ronald Koeman had been under intense pressure following a string of subpar performances from his side, and it goes without saying that the latest defeat makes things worse for the Dutchman, whose days at Camp Nou are reportedly numbered.

Barcelona remain down at ninth place in the La Liga table while Atletico go level on points with league leaders Real Madrid.
