Atleti came back from a two-goal deficit on Sunday to draw 2-2 against Real Sociedad. Suárez netted both our goals at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Simeone played an attacking-minded 4-3-3 with Griezmann, Suárez and Joao Félix up front. And although we started the game very well, dominating possession and attacking the visitors. However, the Basque side took the lead on the break in their first chance. Sorloth was the goalscorer. We tried to find the equaliser, but Real Sociedad were well organised and comfortable in possession. Our best chances were two headers from Suárez and Felipe. The first was saved by Remiro and the second was just wide. Unfortunately, we trailed 1-0 at the break.

Simeone was forced to make a change at half time as Lemar was taken off due to muscle pain. The Frenchman was substituted by Carrasco. The second half started off very badly as Isak scored an early free-kick to double the visitors. Our team answered by putting even more pressure on the Basque side. Carrasco almost scored after a great solo effort. Simeone added even more attackers with a double substitution in the 58th minute. Kondogbia and Correa came on for Lodi and De Paul. After many attempts, we finally found the back of the net one hour into the game as Suárez headed home. We kept going and Felipe was once again close to scoring, but his header flew just over the crossbar. Simeone made another double substitution in the 73rd minute, when Herrera and Cunha came on for Hermoso and Griezmann. We found the equaliser shortly thereafter. Suárez was fouled inside the box and converted the penalty to make it 2-2. We pushed for the winner until the very end as we attacked and attacked, but constant interruptions prevented further chances and the game ultimately ended 2-2.
