Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone has backed star striker Luis Suarez to end his barren run in Europe after failing to score in any of Atletico’s Champions League games so far this season.

Simeone believes Wednesday’s clash is the best time For Suarez to score in the Champions League.

The Uruguayan international was anonymous in the first leg, as the Chelsea defence shut him up.

Simeone is now backing his star striker to break a Chelsea defence that has only been bridged twice under Thomas Tuchel.

“I believe Suarez is very important for us,” Simeone said ahead of the game.

“Probably tomorrow is the right day for Luis Suarez to end the (goalless) streak. Why not? Tomorrow could be a beautiful day.”o
