But just like every other top striker does, Luis Suarez was able to put that miss behind him and just before the half-time break managed to get himself a goal. This strike put Barcelona 3-0 ahead in the match after Lionel Messi had scored the second.
This performance will give Barcelona much-needed confidence boost before they begin their Champions League campaign in August. The Catalan side will take on Napoli in the second leg of the Round of 16 as the reverse ended in a 1-1 draw.
