Luis Suarez has needed a little more than 10 minutes to make up for his slow start to the La Liga season for champions Atletico Madrid.
Suarez scored two late goals to give Atleti a 2-1 win at Getafe, ending a two-match winless streak and extending a decade-long unbeaten run against their Madrid rivals.
After scoring only once in his first six matches this season, Suarez got the equaliser in the 78th minute and the winner in the 90th.
"A comeback win like this, with the team trailing late, will help boost the team's morale," Suarez said.
"We know we have to fix a few things. We have to keep improving."
It was the 20th straight match without a loss against Getafe, who hadn't scored in the fixture since their last victory against Atletico in 2011.
Getafe played with 10 men from the 74th because of a red card shown to midfielder Carles Alena.
They had opened the scoring with a header by Stefan Mitrovic late in the first half for his first goal since joining the club this season.
The victory moved Atletico back to the top of the league with 14 points, one more than Real Madrid who host promoted Mallorca on Wednesday.
Second-to-last Getafe remained one of the two teams yet to earn a point, along with Alaves.
Newly-signed forward Radamel Falcao scored his second goal of the season with a header in the sixth minute of stoppage time to give Rayo Vallecano a 2-1 win at Athletic Bilbao.
Falcao had scored his first goal after coming off the bench in his debut with Rayo last Saturday.
The 35-year-old Colombia veteran signed with Rayo as a free agent.
Celta Vigo won 2-0 at Levante for their first victory of the campaign with goals from Iago Aspas in the 66th and Brais Mendez in the 85th.
Roger Marti missed a 71st-minute penalty kick for Levante.
