Luis Suarez found his scoring boots against Girona. A wonderful cross from Sergi Roberto found Suarez in an open space that Suarez himself had created.

The cross left Suarez one and one with the keeper and like the Suarez of old, he put it away.
Suarez has been struggling for form this season. Luckily, the club hasn’t suffered for it. They are six for six. They are at top of the table with eighteen points. They haven’t lost a game and the next best team is four points behind.
Dembele is out for months, so a lot of the pressure has been on Messi to perform for the front line. But the pressure has not got to the Argentinian. Messi has scored nine goals in six games. The numbers don’t indicate a need for scoring, but the team needs Luis Suarez to find his form.

When Neymar left, Barcelona was left with two world-class attacking options.
Suarez is still considered one of the best strikers in the world. In the 2015-2016 season when he won the golden boot, many considered him the best player in the world.
His efforts helped bring a domestic double, a great season for the fans. Hopefully, this game is a signal for greater things to come.
Take a bow, Luis Suarez 🙌 pic.twitter.com/p2eKdODZaL

If Suarez finds his form, this Barcelona team could be even more deadly. Messi is in the form of his life, Iniesta is finding his old self, and Ter Stegen is becoming the best goalie in the world. In every game, Ter Stegen is making a decisive save that could have changed the outcome of the game.
This all starts with Luis Suarez though. When the goals starting coming in, the rest of the team can relax. Suarez is a vital component to this team. Since his arrival, Barcelona has not gone without trophies. As long as he is there, that will never change.
