Luis Suárez never has stood out by his fineness in the technical section, but always has showed to be to the height of style of the FC Barcelona. The charrúa, although it is not the forward with more quality of the world, has known to do place in the Barça to finish turning into one of the best attackers of his history. His character, hunger, capacity goleadora, finish at first and power always have been his greater virtues.

But base an important part of his game in the power always finish affecting with the step of the years. To the '9' has affected him and carried a pair of years something underneath of his usual level. This same campaign criticised him to beginning of course and seemed that it did not go to be his year, but he same has commissioned of callar mouths. With the step of the weeks, the level of Suárez has gone to more and goes to finish the 2019 being the maximum second goleador of the Barcelona.

But that the tip was the 'killer' behind Leo Messi is not at all surprising and rather is the expected. But what probably anybody imagined is that to these heights the Uruguayan also was the maximum second assistant of the team. In what it goes of course, the one of Jump has delivered until eight passes of goal to his mates, explaining the three that did against the Alavés. The last, for the golazo of Messi, did not have too merit because it was the '10' the one who invented the played, but those also explain.

To put in value the numbers regarding assistant of Suárez, Messi, leader in this section each season, carries only one more than him, 9. The one of Rosario keeps on being the king of the assistances, but as it neglect , his fellow could surpass him anytime. The '9' is not any virtuoso and does not have the vision of the six times Balloon of Gold, but moves well, is very intelligent and always knows where has to give the ball in advantage for his mates.

His passes to Antoine Griezmann and Arturo Vidal in front of the vitorianos are good sample of the very that finds the spaces the charrúa. Also it is necessary to stand out the pass that gave him to Ansu Fati against the Inter of Milan with a perfect wall in the frontal of the area that the juvenile did not waste. Weeks before already had done something similar when giving him a perfect ball to Messi, that fusiló to Oblak in Wanda with his classical shot of thread.

Only Messi has marked more goals that he

In what to goals refers , Suárez carries already 10 in League and 13 in total with the three that has marked in Champions League. Messi, the only culé that surpasses him, carries 13 in LaLiga and two in League of Champions for a total of 15. The one of Rosario, for the moment, is the leader in everything, but can not descartar that the '9' approach him if it follows surrendering to this level in 2020.
