Read more

Luis Suárez wished FC Barcelona a happy one-year anniversary in the best way possible last night: netting a hat trick (21’, 48’, 85’) to turn the tides and secure three points for the azulgranas.

This was the eighth time that Barça started a league match from a losing position this season; the Catalans found themselves down after nine minutes of action at the Camp Nou thanks to a goal from Atlético de Madrid loanee Borja “Bastón” González. But no worries, Luisito was there to save the day:

Luis Enrique hailed the Uruguayan star as “irreplaceable” after the match. “What he gives you is priceless and unquestionable. He has that power in the area and is irreplaceable.”

In his first year with Barça, Suárez played in 57 games and scored 35 goals, including six braces and two hat tricks. CRACK.
