New Delhi: As Luis Suarez makes a highly anticipated comeback to action for his first competitive match for Barcelona, the stage is set for the Uruguayan to begin a new chapter with a bang. It's El Clasico on Saturday, a tie Suarez will look forward to and make an impact instantly. Real Madrid are in fine form and the tie offers much for another enthralling game at the Santiago Bernabeu.
The former Liverpool star has always been a big match player and there is no bigger game than El Clasico. The forward will complete a dream attacking line upfront alongside Neymar and Lionel Messi, thus providing a big advantage to the Catalan giants. After netting 31 goals and providing 14 assists for the Reds in their rather successful EPL campaign last season, he will be ready to shine in Spain.
What's interesting is that whether Luis Enrique will opt for Suarez as a substitute or start with him? Either ways, it lifts up the entire atmosphere amongst the team and the fans alike. Suarez has a phenomenal work rate and that holds the key for Luis Enrique to utilise wisely. His impact is huge and that has been seen in Liverpool this season who are struggling to gain foothold without him.
Initially, the 27-year old had been suspended from all football-related activities for biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini during the 2014 FIFA World Cup match in Brazil this summer. But later allowed him to practice with the team and also turn up for his country in friendlies. Suarez scored twice in those friendlies to show he is amongst the touches.
Luis Enrique has confirmed Suarez will play and has been impressed by his fitness and work level. For Suarez he looks well set to roll into action and put the ghastly incident behind him and continue what he did for Liverpool.
Barca are in good form and so is Real Madrid, therefore the impact of Suarez's return is huge and if he gets on the scoresheet then it will mark a perfect comeback for the controversial striker.
