Luis Suarez smashes in four goals and breaks a Barcelona record that stood for almost 20 years
The Barcelona record stood for almost 20 years…
Almost as quickly as Barcelona seemed to descend into total implosion recently, Luis Suarez pulled them out of it with a truly sensational performance in their 0-8 (EIGHT) win over Deportivo.
The often-peckish forward bagged four classy goals – and set up another three, just for a laugh – as he ended his three-game goal “drought” and single-handedly tore their La Liga rivals a new one. In doing so, he broke the original Ronaldo’s record of 47 goals in one season for Barcelona, which dated back to the 1996-97 season.
Suarez now has a massive 49. It was also his SIXTH hat-trick of the season, tying him level for the season with a certain other Ronaldo.
