Luis Suarez Has Now Scored 10 and Assisted 13 Goals In His Last 24 Matches For Barcelona

Luis Suarez Has Now Scored 10 and Assisted 13 Goals In His Last 24 Matches For Barcelona

The majestic Luis Suarez scored one and created two as Barcelona beat Granada 3-1 this afternoon.

Barca are now just one point behind Real Madrid at the top of La Liga, who host Villarreal tomorrow evening.

Suarez is now beginning to justify his eye-watering £75m price tag, having scored 10 goals and assisted 13 in his last 24 matches.

The Uruguayan’s cross-shot allowed Ivan Rakitic to turn into an empty net for the opener and he doubled the lead himself, poking home after half-time.

Fran Rico’s penalty gave Granada hope but Suarez rounded the keeper to create a tap-in for Leo Messi to make it 3-1.

Granada – 19th in La Liga – have managed just 16 league goals this season, 11 fewer than Messi alone.

After the match, Barca manager Luis Enrique was gushing with praise for the in-form Suarez, saying: “Maybe Suarez is standing out more when he’s scoring but since he started playing with us he has done very well and worked very hard.”
