Suarez Makes Barca Debut In Friendly

Uruguay striker Luis Suarez made his Barcelona debut as a late substitute in their 6-0 victory over Mexican side Club Leon in a friendly on Monday.

Suarez’s four-month ban for biting was upheld last week but has been relaxed to allow the 27-year-old to train and play in friendly matches. The striker, who joined Barcelona for £75m from Liverpool, showed some nice touches during the cameo appearance.

Barcelona fans will have to wait a little longer for Suarez’s competitive Barcelona debut, which is likely to be at Real Madrid on October 26 in the El Clasico.

The Catalan club cruised to victory against Club Leon to win the Joan Gamper Cup after Argentina international Messi opened the scoring in the second minute. Brazilian Neymar then scored twice before half-time to give Barca a comfortable advantage.

Teenage striker Munir El Haddadi also netted a brace – the second goal coming moments after Suarez’s introduction – before 19-year-old Sandro rounded off the scoring with another two minutes from time.
