AC Milan, Atletico Madrid play an entertaining 3-goal thriller

Suarez chipped in from the spot to complete a late comeback after Milan substitute Pierre Kalulu handled. The hosts played with 10 men for 68 minutes as Franck Kessie was sent off following a second yellow card.

Atletico Madrid striker Luis Suarez scored a winning penalty in the seventh minute of stoppage time against 10-man AC Milan in the Champions League. Rafael Leao had given Milan the lead, but Atletico striker Antoine Griezmann equalised in the 84th minute.

It is the second time in three games Suarez has scored a late winner, after the Uruguayan netted twice – including one in the 91st-minute – in a 2-1 comeback win over 10-man Getafe on 21 September.

Atletico’s victory ensured they moved up to second in their group, two points behind unbeaten Liverpool. AC Milan are now winless in six successive European matches for the first time, while four of Atletico’s past five matches in all competitions have seen a red card.
