Can Luis Suárez light up Copa America?

10 June 2019

Luis Suárez has become an FC Barcelona legend since joining the Catalan giant in 2014.

The Uruguayan has been prolific over the last five seasons, putting himself in the top five all-time leading scorers for the club.

Suárez made his first Barça start in October 2014, setting up Neymar in the El Clásico at the Bernabéu.

The forward scored his first goal in the UEFA Champions League a month later, netting in a 4-0 victory over APOEL.

In his first season, Suárez helped the Catalan club to the treble, winning LaLiga, Copa del Rey and the Champions League, scoring 25 goals in all competitions.

The 2015-16 season was his most prolific in a Barça jersey to date, netting an incredible 40 goals in 35 LaLiga matches.

The forward scored his first hat-trick for the club in 2015 in an 8-0 thrashing of Cordoba at the Nuevo Arcángel.

Suárez has formed a devastating partnership with Lionel Messi during his time at the club.

The striker rounded off a hat-trick against Celta Vigo in 2016 after Messi caught the defenders off guard by flicking his penalty into the path of Suárez to hammer home.

An adept finisher with both feet, Suárez has found the net frequently against arch-rivals Real Madrid.

He was on target in a 4-0 drubbing, opening the scoring in the first half before completing the victory with his second strike in the 74th minute.

Suárez has picked up 13 major honours in his time at Barcelona and with 167 goals, he’s now the fifth highest scorer in the club’s history.
