FC Barcelona striker Luis Suárez finished up his first season at the Club with 25 goals, a Treble, and a huge role in the successful playing style of Luis Enrique's squad. The ex-Liverpool player made a huge impression at Camp Nou, as illustrated by the following ten moments:

1. Camp Nou debut in the Joan Gamper Cup

Luis Suárez's five-year contract with FC Barcelona was officially announced on 11 July 2014. One month later, on 18 August, he made his debut at Camp Nou in the 49th edition of the Joan Gamper. Suárez replaced Rafinha and played the last 15 minutes of the match.

2. Friendly and double with Barça B

While his sanction prevented him from playing in official matches, Suárez did play in a Barça B friendly against Indonesia's U-19 team. The striker scored his first two goals for the club, although they were not official.

3. The Golden Shoe

Suárez's effectiveness as scorer and his 31 goals at Liverpool the previous season gave him his first Golden Shoe.

4. First El Clásico and official debut

Suárez plays in his first official match for Barça on 25 October 2014 against Real Madrid at the Bernabéu. He started and was replaced by Pedro after 69 minutes in a game that Barça lost 3–1.

5. First goal

Just a month after his debut, Suárez scored his first official goal. It was his sixth game for the club and opened the scoring in a 4–0 rout at APOEL. He scored his first goal at Camp Nou on 10 December, in Barça's 3–1 win over PSG.

6. Breathtaking scissors-kick goal at Camp Nou

On match day 23 of the season, Barça thrashed Levante with Suárez launching himself skyward for a spectacular scissors-kick, finishing an Adriano cross into the back of the net.

7. Decisive in the Champions League

Suárez scored twice in the Champions League last-16 first leg at Manchester City, and then reappeared in the quarter-final first leg against PSG at Parc des Princes with a spectacular goal, going past David Luiz and sending the ball into the upper right corner from outside the area.

8. Hat-trick at the Nuevo Arcángel

Luis Suárez was actively involved in the scoring in Barça's 8–0 rout at Córdoba, netting his first hat-trick for the Club. The Uruguayan scored the second, fourth and eighth goals of the match.

9. The first title: La Liga

Despite missing the match against Atlético Madrid with a left hamstring injury, Suárez celebrated his first title with FC Barcelona. A few weeks later he did play and duly celebrated the victory in the final of the Spanish Cup against Athletic Club.

10. Clutch goalscorer and European champion

Suárez's presence in the Champions League Final was vital. When Juventus fought hard and drew level, Luis Suárez showed his scoring instinct with a perfect finish following a Buffon save on a shot by Messi, putting Barça back up by 2–1 and putting the last 20 minutes of the match on a different plane, making the dream of Treble come true.
