Defenders around the world know just how difficult it is the deal with Luis Suarez.

Not only is the Barcelona striker one of the most prolific forwards in world football but he’s extremely tricky to tackle when he’s on the ball.

The Uruguayan loves to twist and turn to off-balance defenders and make them look extremely foolish.

And that happened once again this weekend as, not only did he beat Valancia’s Ezequiel Garay with a piece of skill, he left him injured on the floor as a result.

Early in the match, Suarez approached the byline inside the box and produced a turn that sent his opponent to the ground.

Garay remained on the floor and needed treatment before eventually being fit enough to continue.

Somehow, Barca weren’t able to take advantage of Suarez’s skill as Lionel Messi couldn’t convert from his pull-back.

Take a look:

Barcelona were left ruing being unable to score from that opportunity when Eliaquim Mangala opened the scoring for Valencia.

However, Suarez soon equalised before Mangala was sent off.

Messi’s penalty made it 2-1 before Munir - on loan from Barcelona - equalised against his parent club before half-time.

But Messi’s second of the game and Andre Gomes’ strike in the second half meant Luis Enrique’s secured all three points and kept up the pressure on Real Madrid.

Their hopes of achieving in an incredible treble is still well and truly alive. They’re already in the final of the Copa del Rey - where they will face Alaves - in the quarter-final of the Champions League - where they face Juventus - and trail Madrid by two points in La Liga - although they have played an extra game.

And with Suarez, Messi and Neymar all firing at the moment, they have every chance of giving Enrique the perfect send off and ending the season with yet another treble.
