Atletico Madrid

came from behind to beat 10-man

Getafe

2-1 at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez and move to the top of La Liga on Tuesday.

Stefan Mitrovic

gave Getafe the lead just before the half-time break, a horrible challenge by former

Barcelona

player

Carles

Alena

on

Matheus Cunha

saw Los Azulones reduced to 10 men in the 74th minute. Then, a few minutes later,

Luis Suarez

scored the equalizer. Just as it seemed that the game was going to finish as a draw, Suarez appeared once again to secure all three points for Los Colchoneros.

The result puts Atletico top of the table, albeit with a game in hand on second-placed city rivals

Real Madrid

, of whom they’re a point clear.

“We’re at the start of the season,”

Diego Simeone

said in comments carried by

Marca

after the game.

“There are many situations that the team needs to overcome, the team hasn’t been as we would like them to be. The game was against a difficult opponent, who aren’t going to lose all season and are dangerous.

“At the beginning, what we were looking for was control, then there was a lack of intensity, speed and circulation that could hurt the rival and it led to a flat match. Then the goal arrived; we chatted at half-time and then, even aside from the goals, we saw another team that played with more offensive forcefulness. We have to continue managing that and wait for our most important players to hit their best form.”
