Luis Suárez celebrating winning the Champions League last season / MIGUEL RUIZ - FCB

Luis Suárez came to Barcelona in the summer of 2014 with a reputation as a fox in the box. Now, no one doubts his ability inside and outside the box as his reputation has been enhanced since joining the blaugranes. The Uruguayan made his debut for Barça on the 25 October last year, less than 12 months ago. Since then the striker has scored a total of 31 goals in a Barça shirt, 28 in 2015 spread around the league, the Copa del Rey, the Champions League and European Super Cup.

Suárez’s latest effort came on Tuesday, his fantastic curling shot from the edge of the box was the winner in Barça’s 2-1 comeback win over Bayer Leverkusen at Camp Nou. That goal gave the blaugranes their first win in this season’s Champions League and at the same time allowed Luis Suárez to overtake his international team mate Edinson Cavani as the leading Uruguyan goalscorer of all time in UEFA competition. His total of 31 goals moves him one ahead of the Paris Saint-Germain striker with former Deportivo La Coruña, Espanyol and Osasuna player Walter Pandiani back in third on 24 goals.

Luis Suárez has always found the net in Europe, be it with his former clubs Groningen, Ajax and Liverpool, or now with his current club FC Barcelona to reach the figure of 31 goals. The Uruguayan will not stop there as he is in great form having scored three of the last four goals for Barça and he has scored twice in a game six times and notched up one hat trick since joining the club of his boyhood dreams.


TEAM (UEFA Competition)
FC Groningen (2006/07) 1
Ajax Amsterdam (2007-2010) 16
Liverpool (2010-2014) 4
FC Barcelona (2014-...) 10
