Luis Suárez helped Atlético Madrid on Saturday in La Liga with a goal to a 0-2 victory on a visit to Celta de Vigo. Earlier in the day, Granada booked a nice victory over Seville five days before the Europa League match with PSV: 1-0.
Granada records a handsome victory over Seville
Suárez already scored after six minutes in the Estadio de Balaídos. The Uruguayan found the goal on a pass from Manuel Sánchez with a shot to the right corner.
For Suárez, who came over from FC Barcelona this summer, it meant his third goal in the service of Atlético. The attacker made a dream debut at the beginning of this month with two goals in the home game against Granada (6-1).
Yannick Carrasco secured the three points for Atlético deep in injury time, which climbs to fourth place with eight points from four games.

In Estadio Nuevo Los Cármenes, the Venezuelan Yangel Herrera made the only goal for Granada against Seville eight minutes before the end. At that time, the visitors played with a man less after two yellow cards just before half-time for Jordan.
Luuk de Jong started on the bench at Sevilla and came in halfway, while Karim Rekik and former Ajax player Nemanja Gudelj got no playing time. Granada has an excellent start to the season and is currently in second place with ten points from five games.
Last season, Granada finished seventh, making its debut in Europe this season. The club has already survived two preliminary rounds and a play-off in the Europa League. PSV against Granada starts on Thursday at 6.55 pm in the Philips Stadium. The other match in group E is between PAOK and Omonia.
FC Barcelona will play in La Liga later this Saturday. The team of trainer Ronald Koeman will visit Getafe at 9 p.m. and Real Madrid will take on Cádiz at home at 6.30 p.m.
