Barcelona striker Luis Suarez has given his fans the assurance that he was not really anxious about his dry spell and knew that he would score, sooner or later.
Although he has further stated that defender Gerard Pique will be a major star missing from the game against Valencia.
The Uruguayan international finally ended a goal drought of 479 minutes in the La Liga, as he scored a brace in his team’s 3-0 win over Leganes.
This would have really pushed his confidence levels up after his recent slump, with the Catalan giants moving seven points clear of second place Valencia, who still have a game in hand at the moment.
Ernesto Valverde’s team will not want to let go of this advantage that they have at the top of the table, as they look to be crowned the champions of Spain this term.
Luis Suarez was confident about breaking drought
The 30-year-old striker’s return to form will surely be a huge boost for Barca, as they will be facing off against Juventus next in the Champions League’and will want to win that game as well, in order to keep their positive momentum going.
After the game, the former Liverpool man stated in his interview that he “was not really worried about scoring” and the key part was that he could help his team win the game, with his contribution on the pitch on the night.
Suarez further said,”The goals helped us to win the game, which was the most important thing. Every game is difficult and we knew what it was going to be like. The important thing was to win. We try to play well, but it’s not always possible and we have to get used to this”.

However, the other thing that was distracting the attacker was the fact that Pique would not be part of the team for the match against Valencia, due to his yellow-card suspension.
Suarez concluded by saying that he hopes his team keeps playing the way that they are and win more games in the upcoming days.
Barca look like real title contenders for not just the top flight of Spanish football, but for the Champions League as well, if they can keep performing the way that they have been doing so far. Hopefully, Suarez’s return to form will help them win some silverware this term. He is a top player and can really help his team win crucial games, if he keeps performing the way that he did in the last match.
