Lionel Messi hails Barcelona hero Luis Suarez on social media

The Barcelona talisman has praised the former Liverpool attacker after his two goals in last night’s Champions League clash.

Barcelona look set to take their place in the last four of the Champions League, with the Blaugrana comprehensively beating Paris Saint-Germain 3-1 away from home in their quarter-finals first leg last night.

Lionel Messi, so often the Camp Nou outfit’s attacking talisman, created the opening goal for Neymar, before Luis Suarez netted two impressive individual strikes to give Luis Enrique’s side a comfortable position heading into the return fixture next week.

The Uruguayan forward has been in superb form since the turn of the year and is starting to show just why the Catalans paid an astronomical price to land him from Liverpool.

Messi has hailed his attacking partner-in-crime on Facebook after the display.

Suarez has overcome a slow start to life in Spain to become a critical member of the silverware chasing side, with the tempestuous attacker starting to score and create goals on a regular basis.

Enrique’s men are still in the hunt for a momentous treble this season, with Barcelona in incredible form and looking like the form team in Europe.

Suarez recently scored the winning goal in the El Clasico clash against Real Madrid that will have a major say in the eventual La Liga champions.
