This could be a magic week for Luis Suárez, at least regarding individual statistics. The attacker charrúa of the FC Barcelona, after having signed a prodigious "póker" of goals against the Sportive and have delivered also three assistances in this same party, will confront this Saturday to the Sporting of Gijón in the Camp Nou with the possibility to do even more extraordinary his present season in League BBVA 2015-16.

The Uruguayan, that accumulates 30 goals in the domestic championship, has to two targets of distance the 32 that annotated Diego Forlán during the season 2008-09 with the Athletic of Madrid, being until the moment the Uruguayan player that more so many has marked in a same campaign in the Spanish League. To the "9" of the Barcelona, therefore, subtract him four days of competition to try equalise or surpass the record, something that is very possible taking into account that this same Wednesday was able to mark four goals of a tacada.

The Sporting of Gijón, besides, is one of the worst defensive teams of the League, thing that could facilitate him the things in a stadium like the Camp Nou, with a lot of spaces and the lawn in perfect conditions so that all the stars shine in all his splendour. The Wednesday against the Sportive, besides, Luis Suárez beat the record scorer of Ronaldo Nazario in the Barça, that annotated 47 targets in the campaign 1996-97. Now, between all the competitions, the charrúa adds 49 goals.

Together, Luis Suárez and Diego Forlán achieved with the selection of Uruguay the fourth place in the World-wide of 2010 and the Glass America of 2011.

They are very good friends, and when Forlán sacked in 2015 of the Uruguayan selection Luis Suárez devoted him a very moving letter. "Thank you By all the moments that did us enjoy, by all what did by our selection, by all what taught me like professional and like mate so much inside as out of the field. Always you were a referent, no only for my but for a lot of players, and go it to be followed being. A big for all the Uruguayans!!!! Diego, thank you very much by everything!!!".
