Luis Suarez’s failure to launch worries Barcelona

Luis Suarez’s failure to launch worries Barcelona

Posted by Juan Gavasa on December 15, 2014

In none of Barca fans’ worst nightmares would Luis Suarez have spent seven La Liga games as their team’s main striker and not have scored a single goal.

Granted, he did score against Valencia, although his legal netting was wrongfully disallowed, but the Uruguayan’s overall performances with his new club are still quite far from those he put out last year at Liverpool or during the World Cup with his National Team.

There is no doubt Suarez is a top notch goal scorer. His Golden Boot from last season, when he scored 31 goals despite missing the first two months of the competition due to suspension, is just a small proof of his talents when facing the opposing goal. But most impressive was the way he manned Uruguay’s attack in Brazil, during the World Cup.

A team that was built to keep their goal intact rather than break past their rivals’ defensive system, found in Suarez the hero they had been looking for; the man who could win a game by creating and finalizing his own scoring opportunities.

After such convincing credentials, there was no doubt in anyone’s mind that teaming up the former Liverpool star with Neymar and Messi would make Barcelona the ultimate, and unstoppable, attacking machine. Unfortunately, things haven’t panned out quite as planned though.
