Luis Suarez was expected to be the star man for Atletico Madrid in the second leg tie against Chelsea.

The Uruguayan star has failed to score away from home in the Champions League since 2015, and Atletico boss Diego Simeone had backed him to break his scoring duck against Chelsea.

Just like in the first leg, Suarez was heavily silenced by the Chelsea defence, with Antonio Rudiger making sure he had no sniff on the Chelsea goal.

It didn’t work for Suarez at the Bridge, and Simeone had seen enough after the hour mark, as he decided to sub him off.

Suarez looked very disappointed to leave the pitch, and Simeone admitted after the game that he needed to make changes.

“It’s normal that he got angry when he was taken off, players want to stay on,” Simeone said of Suarez.

“We wanted a new way to attack them so we made changes.”
