Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi are Barcelona’s saviours

The Catalans have seen their rivals go ahead six times and, in four of those games, the duo saved the day. Getafe, Atletico, Valencia, Celta, Real Sociedad and Alaves were in the box seat on the scoreboard in 2017/18, although only momentarily.

On the four occasions that the pair have been decisive, the Uruguayan has scored in every one. In the game at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano against Atletico Madrid, Suarez equalised a goal from Saul and saved a point for Barcelona. Against Celta, Messi and El Pistolero ensured another draw, and in Anoeta, after Real Sociedad were 2-0 up, Paulinho started the comeback and was joined on the score sheet by Suarez, twice, and the Argentinian.

This past Sunday, it was the same script; Guidetti’s opening goal prompting a response from the Barcelona strikers. Messi and Suarez also scored the goals to knock Espanyol out of the Copa del Rey.
