This first touch is the reason Barcelona signed Luis Suarez

Glorious from the Uruguayan...

The control here is out of this world.

Watch Luis Suarez’s first touch here after he gave Barcelona a 2-1 win over Real Madrid in Sunday night’s El Clasico encounter.

This is a touch so glorious, it made us feel like we did when we were 13 and Helen the babysitter from next door…(now now, easy does it – Ed.)


It was by far the best moment in a tight and prickly clash at the Nou Camp.

Jeremy Mathieu’s first goal for the club had put Barcelona ahead in the first half, before an otherwise off-colour Cristiano Ronaldo equalised.

The win left Barcelona four points clear of their bitter rivals at the top of La Liga, with 10 games remaining.
