This Saturday, Atlético de Madrid gave a major moral blow to FC Barcelona with a victory (1-0) in the Wanda Metropolitano that brings the ‘colchoneros’ closer to the fight for LaLiga Santander while it moves the azulgranas away from the positions that give access to the next edition of the Champions League. A match that was decided by a goal from Yannick Carrasco in the final stretch of the first half.
The duel between Atlético de Madrid and FC Barcelona had several casualties on the part of both teams and, specifically for the rojiblancos, the most notable was that of Luis Suárez. The Uruguayan forward returned from the international team break testing positive for Covid-19, which is why he could not meet again with the one who was his team during the previous six seasons.
Despite this notable absence, Atlético de Madrid managed to overcome and obtain the three points, something that caused the joy of the ‘gunman’. After the game, Luis Suárez did not hesitate to celebrate on his social networks the victory of the rojiblanco team or, what is the same, the defeat of FC Barcelona at a frankly delicate moment for the entity both at a sporting and institutional level.
Precisely because of these difficulties that the Barça team is going through, it was surprising that Luis Suárez, after the game, published a post in ‘Instagram Stories’ celebrating the victory as if it were one more. “Big team +3“, he published, along with several applause emoticons, as many strength emoticons and others showing the red and white colors with a team photograph in the background.
A post that could have been saved. It is clear that everyone is free to celebrate the victories in the way they want and Luis Suárez did not disrespect in his publication. But, taking into account the delicate moment that FC Barcelona is living and that the Uruguayan was who he was at the Camp Nou, perhaps it was inappropriate for him to rub off the victory with a publication that was possibly full of resentment.
FC Barcelona lost, in a match in which Gerard Piqué and Sergi Roberto were injured, in the case of the center possibly seriously. Luis Suárez did not care. For him, the important thing was that everyone saw how ‘mattress’ he feels two months after signing his new contract. A gesture that is not at the height of a historical player for Barcelona, who was also who he was thanks to the culé club.
