Luis Suarez made an immediate impact at Atletico Madrid by scoring two and setting up another as they trounced Granada 6-1 on Sunday. The striker joined Diego Simeone’s side from Barcelona in a €6 million (£5.5m/$7m) deal on Thursday after a move to Juventus fell through.

The 33-year-old came off the bench to make his debut for Atleti when he replaced Diego Costa in the 70th minute with his side 3-0 up. The Uruguay international needed less than two minutes to contribute to the scoring as he set up Marcos Llorente to make it 4-0, knocking it on for the midfielder to slot home.

Luis Suárez has become the first player to score and assist on his LaLiga debut for Atlético de Madrid in the 21st century and also the first debutant to score a brace for the Red-And-Whites. Spectacular.
