Suarez Free Kick

Luis Suarez took just four minutes to make an impact on his competitive debut for Barcelona against Real Madrid in El Clasico.

Luis Suarez made his long-awaited debut for Barcelona on Saturday when he started against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu in La Liga.

The 27-year-old Uruguay international striker was making his first competitive appearance for the Catalan giants, having joined them from Premier League outfit Liverpool in the summer transfer window for a reported fee of £75 million.

Suarez was given a four-month ban by FIFA for biting Italy international defender Giorgio Chiellini during a 2014 World Cup game in Brazil in the summer.

That suspension has now come to an end, and Suarez started El Clasico on Saturday. And he did not need much time to make an impact, creating the first goal of the match after just four minutes.

Suarez drilled in a cross from the right wing that Brazil international forward Neymar slammed home from inside the Madrid box to give Barcelona the lead at the Bernabeu in the fourth minute.

It is still early days in his Barcelona career, but Suarez already looks like a hit.
