Barcelona: Remembering when Luis Suarez contributed to seven goals in one game

Luis Suarez’s Barcelona record since his debut in 2014 is pretty darn remarkable.

In his 270 games in all competitions, the Uruguayan striker has scored 191 goals and assisted another 108.

On average, he contributes to 1.10 goals every time he steps onto the field for the Blaugrana.

Suarez’s best season in Spanish football came in 2015/16, where he pipped both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo to the Pichichi award.

The 32-year-old scored 40 goals in La Liga alone, assisting another 18 in just 35 games. That’s right he averaged 1.65 goal involvements per game, ridiculous stuff.

But forget the number 1.65, because during one game against Deportivo la Coruna on this day four years ago, Suarez contributed to SEVEN goals in an 8-0 win for Barca.

The former Liverpool man scored four times and assisted another three in a frankly ridiculous virtuoso display. This is what all Fantasy Football players think their captain is going to do every week!


Suarez bundles home the opener, before being teed up by Messi to casually slot the ball in the bottom corner to make it 2-0.

The Uruguayan then turns provider, teeing up Ivan Rakitic brilliantly with a lovely lofted cross.

Suarez then grabs his hat-trick after yet another stellar through ball by Messi and the first-time finish with the outside of his boot is simply delightful.

Neymar then unselfishly tees up his striker partner for his fourth of the game, with Suarez then going on to brilliantly assist Messi for Barca’s sixth – his Cruyff turn prior to the final pass is an absolute gem.

Suarez’s final act of the game sees him return the favour to Neymar, setting up the Brazilian for an easy finish past the Deportivo ‘keeper.

Some performance, eh? At his best, Suarez is the definition of a nightmare for opposing defenders.

His tireless work ethic and tenacious attitude, combined with world-class skill, is simply impossible to stop when he’s in full flow.

When he calls time on his Barcelona career, Suarez will be recognised as one of the greatest out-and-out strikers in football history.
