Suarez on target twice for Barça

first_img Early header In yesterday’s other quarter-final match, Arturo Vidal’s early header was enough for Bayern Munich to beat Benfica 1-0 at home for a slender advantage. The Chilean midfielder struck in the second minute, heading home from five metres after being picked out by Juan Bernat. Vidal had most of the chances for the rest of the game, with Benfica’s defenders doing well to stifle Robert Lewandowski and Thomas M¸ller, the home side’s top-scoring forwards. Lewandowski missed the best opportunity to wrap it up in the final minutes, when he sent a wayward pass for Philipp Lahm with an open goal beckoning. Bayern are bidding to reach their fifth consecutive semi-final, while the Portuguese league leaders are hoping to reach their first since 1990. BARCELONA, Spain (AP): Luis Suarez scored two second-half goals to lead Barcelona to a 2-1 comeback victory over 10-man Atletico Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final yesterday. Fernando Torres opened the scoring in the 25th minute, but quickly went from hero to villain for Atletico when two reckless tackles saw him sent off in the 35th. Atletico resisted the defending champions’ push for an equaliser until Suarez finally levelled with an opportunistic goal in the 63rd. Suarez then put Barcelona ahead in the 74th when he played Dani Alves wide before sending the Brazil defender’s cross past goalkeeper Jan Oblak with an unstoppable header.last_img read more
