Barcelona striker Luis Saurez has urged his teammates to move past the victory over Paris Saint Germain as they face Serie A champs Juventus on Tuesday.

Both sides are meeting in the quarter finals of the tournament – the first time since meeting at the 2015 Champions League final.

Barcelona pulled off a big win, more like a miracle, as they came back from a 4-0 deficit in the first leg to win 6-1 in the return leg. It is one of the greatest comebacks in continental history. The achievements earned them a chance to play Juventus and the Uruguay international is asking that the team focus on the match differently.

“The game against PSG was special, but it is in the past now. We knew that we had the ability to create a miracle and we made history that night. It does give you confidence when you have performances like that but every test in the Champions League is a big one and there are not many bigger tests than Juventus,” Suarez said.

Surez hailed the Serie A side, labelling them “one of the best teams in Europe.” Read more…

Edinson Cavani doesn’t think that there is too much of similarity between him and Luis Suarez barring the fact that they belong to the same part of Uruguay and represent Uruguay at the international level.

In the opinion of Cavani, the comparison between the two players can be made only when the two of them play the same style of Football, but, in the case of him and Suarez, the style is totally different and that’s why, the comparison just can’t be accurate.

Cavani claims to have a good camaraderie with Suarez being his compatriot and a healthy rivalry as well when they face each other as parts of their respective clubs.

In the words of Cavani, “What’s same about me and Suarez is that we are compatriots, but, that’s about it. Other than that if you see the options that he has chosen, he opted to move out of the country pretty early, I didn’t. My career in club Football back home was a little longer than his.” Read more…

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher reveals that Brendan Rodgers wanted to have Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Luis Suarez in the same team.

Rodgers inherited a team that contained Luis Suarez, who later became one of the greatest strikers in the Premier League despite having spent only a couple of years in English football. Suarez came on the verge of single-handedly helped Liverpool win the league title in the 2013-14 season. Unable to lift major honours with Liverpool since joining the club in a £22 million deal, Suarez saw the opportunity to join Barcelona as the best possible outcome.

He left for the Catalan club in the summer of 2014. There was a significant lack of strength in depth at Liverpool back then. However, it would have been so different if Rodgers was able to bring in Mkhitaryan before the Armenian international joined Borussia Dortmund. Carragher says that Rodgers planned on using Luis Suarez as the main striker followed by Mkhitaryan in a number 10 role. Read more…
