Luis Suárez went this past summer of the FC Barcelona with 198 goals, the third of the history of the group barcelonista that more has marked. The charrúa turned into legend in the Camp Nou and, in spite of not to have gone as it had liked him, always will have a place in the mind of all the fans of the Barça. Only Leo Messi and César Rodríguez surpass him regarding targets and this is something that anybody goes him to remove.

But the one of Jump yes left with a spine nailed in Europe that has not been able to remove during five long years. The Uruguayan tried it of all the possible way and was near to achieve it in more than an occasion, but at the end sold him before being able to attain it. This is, obviously, have not marked far of his house in Champions League from the year 2015, something that has pursued him always.

With the '9' to his back, Suárez has gone through multiple stadiums since it annotated on 16 September 2015 a so much to the Rome in the Olympic, but in any has been able to mark. Well, yes it did it in Lisbon against the Bayern of Munich in the humillante 2-8, but technically did not explain, since it was a neutral field and besides the Barcelona was the venue chosen by the UEFA for this crash.

This curse of the '9' seemed to be abocada to the eternity, but this season has left free his number and his substitute hardly has taken a sigh in breaking the maleficio. Martin Braithwaite​ chose his dorsal in pre-season in front of the no signing of another forward and this past Tuesday was to title against the Dynamo in Kiev. A meeting that the Nordic took advantage of wonderfully to mark no one, but two targets.

The ex of the Leganés gave a hit on of the table and showed that it can have he. It annotated the first after a combed of Mingueza that took advantage of in the second stick launching to by the balloon like any 'killer' would do, and did not fail from the penalty spot in the second. In definite, claimed to him and claimed the '9' that carries to his back, that did not celebrate a goal out of the Camp Nou from the 2015.

Braithwaite Could have more opportunities after his doublet

It will be necessary to see if Ronald Koeman decides to give him more minutes to Braithwaite in the next commitments of the Barça. The Dutch is needed of goal and of mordiente up after the injury of Ansu Fati, by what could throw of the Danish to fault of Memphis Depay, that was the forward that he wanted to. The ex pepinero could go back to have a new opportunity this Sunday against Osasuna, already in his stadium.
