Uruguay striker and former Liverpool frontman Suarez could come back to haunt Chelsea once again in International Champions Cup.
Bookies.com give Luis Suarez a fair chance of scoring as Barcelona take on Chelsea in the International Champions Cup and the Uruguayan is 6/5 with Coral to do so anytime, having already dispatched two goals against the Blues while with Liverpool.
Having broken the deadlock in Barca’s opening match of pre-season against LA Galaxy as the Catalan club won 2-1, he was desperately unlucky in the team’s 3-1 defeat against Manchester United and could have scored twice, having struck both posts and causing Louis van Gaal’s side a plethora of problems.
He is, in fact 9/2 with Ladbrokes to open the scoring and the player says he has been impressed with the team so far this summer, who are playing without Neymar and Lionel Messi, and indicated that there is no reason why they can’t win the treble again next season.
It was very difficult at the time I came, I came here to train,” he said. “It was quite difficult in such a short time. I was coming to a new club, a new city and it was a big change.
“But I was very proud of my season and the way I integrated into the team. Also, to continue my ambition to always want to achieve new things,” he continued.
“Barca is the greatest team in the world and it’s your obligation to win every competition you play in. We shouldn’t prioritise one competition, we shouldn’t make a priority, we need to do the best we can in all of them and try to win.”
Last term, Suarez was part of a prolific front trio who registered 122 goals between them in all competitions. To score two or more goals, which evidence so far suggests he is certainly capable of doing, he is 13/2 with Paddy Power.
“I think we’re well covered in attack, we have players who can play in any position in the attack,” he added. “It’s always nice and healthy and it’s always a benefit for the team.
“It’s not just us three but the whole team that needs to maintain the same rhythm and mentality and keep trying to win. It’s very important to continue with that ambition and to achieve important things.”
