A siesta for Luis Suárez

Luis Suárez

On paper, the match against Levante at the Camp Nou would seem to be the ideal situation to rest the players who have played the most minutes.

Luis Suárez is, by a long way, the member of the ‘Culés’ squad who has been most present in the official matches played so far this season. In fact, the Uruguayan has played the full 90 in every single one of Barça’s seven matches. Thus far he has not left the field of play until the final whistle. Neither has he come off the bench to turn a match around, something which Leo Messi, another guaranteed starter, did at the Calderón against Atlético Madrid.

Suárez has played everything and his contribution is vital at all times. However, against Roma he began to show signs of exhaustion. For that reason, and more so bearing in mind the tricky trip to Vigo next week, it will not be a surprise to see him starting on the bench among the substitutes against Levante. This would not be new experience for the Uruguayan, since he was rested against the Valencian outfit last season (he came on the second half and scored with a bicycle kick).

It is also worth noting that this is not the first time that Luis Enrique has repeated a decision of this kind against a specific opponent. If our predictions are correct, Sandro Ramírez could make his first start of the year.
