Quite a goal, Mr. Suarez, quite a goal.
Barcelona’s Luis Suarez took less than seven minutes to make normally stingy Atletico Madrid look pretty open, but there is good news for the hosts at the Vicente Calderon: manager Diego Simeone couldn’t really get in their faces until halftime.

Suarez gained possession near the halfway line and then dribbled through the Atleti backs before using the outside of his boot to push the ball under a diving Jan Oblak, as Barca took a 1-0 lead in the first leg of their Copa del Rey semifinal.
It’s his 22nd goal of the season for Barcelona, and his 106th overall goal for the Blaugranas. He’s good at soccer.
