The Uruguayan attacker’s fine finish made the difference against Real Madrid and he hailed it as the most valuable goal he has scored for his new club
Luis Suarez described his winning goal against Real Madrid on Sunday as his most important yet for Barcelona.
The Uruguayan was put in behind by a long Dani Alves pass and a sublime first touch set him up for a fine finish past Iker Casillas in the 56th minute to secure a 2-1 win for Barca on Sunday, after Cristiano Ronaldo had cancelled out Jeremy Mathieu’s earlier strike.
Suarez was delighted with his winnig goal, stating it was the most crucial goal of his short Camp Nou career so far.
“For now it is the most important goal I have scored with the club and has an extra importance, because of the opponent,” he told TV3.
“The squad is very happy.”

With a four point lead at the top of La Liga and just 10 league games remaining, Barca are in a great position, but Suarez said it was important for his team to stay focused and avoid becoming complacent.
“We know that the league is very difficult,” he said.
“We must seize this advantage against a very strong team like Real Madrid. As in all leagues, you never know what can happen if you relax a little.”
